“1952 M-38 95% restored. If you are looking for a fun collector car, or if you like to have people wave as you drive down the road, this is the jeep for you.

M38 was a Korean War era Jeep that was only in production for 2.5 years. Original Body tub. All wires redone front to back. New gauges, gauge cluster, exhaust, fuel lines, fuel tank, brakes, new original wheels, new tires, upholstery, windshield, windshield seal, pintle hook, antenna, starter, solenoid, carburetor rebuild, new air intake, pioneer gear (axe/shovel). I have original data plate, and paint for touch up. This is great in a parade or to advertise your business!

I have clean title, so you dont have to worry about inspection or anything.

The only thing not original on this jeep is that it was converted to 12 volt (regular battery works) and we added seat belts and turn signals, and a horn that makes a fun sound.

I have had in the family for 30 years. Only selling, because I am tired of having too much stuff and I just dont drive it enough to enjoy it like I used to.

NO TRADES, I do not need help selling. Cash or verifiable cashiers check. I have title and Im ready to sell. Buy it before I change my mind!”

Runs and drives.

“I have up for sale a 1950 Military Willys that I got in trade and really have no need for. Pretty cool rig that runs, drives and stops. Its got its original running gear so its not going to break any land speed records. The body has been modified in areas for reinforcement mainly in the back where the tire carrier was added. It has minimal rust however the body is rough as in lots of dents. It does have new tires, new springs and has been converted to 12volt. The headlights are LED and work great and its equipped with a 12k winch that works. I don’t have time for BS so please be serious and only call if your truly interested. No this is not a daily driver, nor is it street legal (no turn signals) and yes it does have a clear title. I may be interested in trades but would rather sell it for cash.

“This jeep starts right up, might need carb adjustment (idles rich), also needs brake lines bled, and tested.

Mostly original with exception of 12V electric system, this is an original US Army Willys Jeep.

Included in the sale price is the arctic / cold weather hard top and doors. I will consider selling these separately, but really hope the new buyer will restore as a cold weather / MASH M*A*S*H jeep.

Please email specific requests for more photos. Be prepared to prove you don’t live in Nigeria.

The Jeep has a Florida Title”

“1952 Willys M38 Jeep/ I am the third owner of this outstanding Willy’s/Overall condition exterior and interior is excellent/ NO CANCER/1000 miles on professional rebuilt L head original engine/ I had my shop restore it about 10 years ago. Always starts, runs smooth, doesn’t leak anything, dual 12 volt batteries, like new Bestop vinyl cab with doors and large zippered rear door, drop down tailgate, Jerry can with carrier, spare tire with carrier, always garaged, 8,000 lb Warn winch with remote, all gauges and lights work (sometimes the fuel gauge can be intermittent), military style tires are 95%, roll bar, heater that will keep you warm. Fold down back seat. I bought this Willy’s from the farmers family that bought it from the military. He parked it in his shop and I parked it in my shop. This was a western Washington vehicle which means no road salt or chemicals. As you can see in the pics, this is a very sweet M38 owned and used by adults. No teenybopper hack job here”
