“Outstanding Willys Jeep M38 4×4 with Army & MASH painted appointments! Fully documented history since leaving the Arkansas Federal Military Surplus in 1972! It remained an Arkansas truck until 1999 before going on display for 19 year in the Evergreen Historical Automobile collection! A great example that comes with a 6-foot service trailer, black out lights, shovel & axe, and more! Neat piece for any collection!

1953? CJ-3A/M-38 Taylor Ranch, NM **Status Unknown**


UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $4000

(12/18/2017) Seller describes this as a 1953 CJ-3A. It may be a CJ-3A chassis and M-38 body (seller indicates the body is “new”). It lacks the holes necessary to mount the M-38 grille hinges to the frame.

“This jeep is a 1953 cj3a, but it now has a brand new body tub that is a m38 body. Its just primered to stop from rusting. Lots of new parts rebuilt tcase, and trany diffs have been gone through. The engine turns but hasent been gone through. Its all stock has a doner frame from another jeep. Its like 90%, it does need wireing figured out, or just put new wireing harneses. Also needs brakes looked at, the spring kits were replaced i think not adjusted properly. It stops on one wheel but pedal goes to floor.

We have clear title. Most work was done buy Savios fwd in albuquerque at the time. We dont have the time or money to finnish it. It does retain the factory gauges. The shifters were also cromed out. All the original seats, willys tailgate, no back seat. Some one could easily finish this with alittle time. We got with the intention on converting it to a v8, but would requier to many mods. Plus its a small jeep. Its all original drive train numbers match on diffs, trany engine ect. Some one needs to finish it off.”
