This is Norman.  Norman looks good!

“You are bidding on a 1951 M38 military jeep.  This jeep runs great and the body is in very good condition. There is a small rust spot on the passenger floor board, about the size of a quarter, I included it in the pictures.  The fuel gauge only works when the fuel level gets to 1/2 tank, then it reads accurate. The windshield is cracked due to my nephew sitting on it when I had it down.  The transmission, rear-end, and transfer case work flawlessly transitioning in and out of 4-wheel drive and high/low range.  The engine starts on first crank and always has. All fluid levels are up to date and get checked routinely. My uncle sold it to my brother and I purchased it from him 2 years ago.  I drive the jeep twice per week, once to take my son bird hunting, the other to his baseball game on Thursday nights (approx. 3 miles).  It is not street legal so I take it through the neighborhood by my house staying off of the highway. My wife’s car has been sitting out too long and she wants her spot back in the garage and my third garage door only measures 62 inches wide, not wide enough; that is the only reason I am selling it.  I tried to locate a title but was unable to do so, the process is simple to acquire a bonded title but cost approx. $150 depending on the value of the vehicle, I did not take this step due to the cost and the amount of time to get it back from the DOT, plus I never needed it to be street legal. The odometer reads 44, 304 miles, not sure if thats accurate.”

1947 CJ-2A /M-38 Berthierville, QC, Canada eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-2A, M-38 • TAGS: .

Here’s another one courtesy of Jean-Sebastien. Bids have reached $9100.  No offense to the seller, but I don’t quite understand why someone would modify a ’47 into a M-38 at such a detailed level as this has been done? But, hell, I’ve done plenty of things that didn’t make any sense!

“This is a Collectors 1947 Willys Jeep  CJ2A modified to m38 with a military green paint job that is a year old. The seats were done year ago in green canvas. Jeep has a new go devil four cylinder motor that is green to match paint and was installed about year ago. Jeep runs great and has been garaged every winter. It comes with the one year old green canvas top. New unidirectional 7.00-16 Tires and green rims, Paint and Interior are in Great Condition. Everything has been replaced and redone from Brakes, Paint, Interior, Exhaust. The 4×4 works great with the 3 speed T90 transmission. I can provide more pictures on request.”

1951 M-38 Austin, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8000

There’s been a variety of upgrades on this jeep.

“…  When we first got this jeep, it was in pretty rough shape and close to 100 holes were filled in on the body from various things being mounted/removed over the years (blackout lights, etc etc) Virtually all of the work to it was done by either myself, my stepbrother, or a pro shop. I cant remember exactly how many miles are on it “after build”, but I’m guessing the motor/rebuilt tranny has about 5k, the brake system (entirely replaced at time of conversion) about 2k, tires about 2k. again, this is a toy that was hardly ever used.

Here’s the parts list: Chevy 305 HO from a mid 80’s Camaro Z28 installed by Joe White’s Performance Automotive (THE place to go back in the day) motor had to be canted and fenders pushed out to make fit. remote oil and fuel filters, extra griffin aluminum racing radiator we never installed comes with it. the motor had less than 500 miles on it when we got it, Corvette clutch and pressure plate in 3 speed manual transmission, factory twin stick transfer case, custom rear drive shaft with CV joint built by Austin Drive Train, factory dana 25 front axle with Warn premium hubs, factory dana 30 rear axle with Detroit Locker, 5.13 gears front/rear, 11″ drum brake conversion all the way around (now it stops right!) with new master cylinder at time of install …..”

• CATEGORIES: Builds, Features, M-38 • TAGS: .

This build is for sale on eBay.  There are plenty of pics.  Note the m606 in the background of one of the ebay pics.

“This is a really unique combination of old and new and we’ve had a ton of fun in it. This rig started it’s life as a military M38 until the previous owner started modifying it as a back country rock crawler. When we got it, it had wasn’t much to look at, was missing a windshield but ran and drove so well we had to have it. It is heavily modified to be a safe, comfortable, go anywhere ride. We call it The Rhino Hunter as it has effortlessly shamed a few ORVs in the mud and rocks…”
