1951 M-38 Camarillo, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $4900

(07/15/2010) This looks solid.  I wonder if that really is a BW OD or a Warn OD.

“Original M38. New seats(front buckets and rear military style quick removable “clam shell style bench), tires, brakes. Runs great! starts right up and goes anywhere. Borg-warner O/D so it’ll cruise 60mph if you dare. It’s not a perfect museum piece yet, but high KBB is $17.5k for one like that.”

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $7,999

(03/20/2010) It’s got a Buick V-6 225, but otherwise appears pretty stock.  It does have those m-151(?) rims that cause it to have a narrow track.

1951 M-38 Holbrook, Ny eBay

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: .

Here’s a ‘professionally’ restored M-38 that doesn’t appear accurately restored.  You can see it is missing the M-38 grille and grill mount, suggesting this is a CJ frame. It doesn’t have a M-38 gas tank and the inlet is in an odd position.  The windshield vent should be bolted, not hinged. The rear of the frame looks civilian;  Here’s the way the rear should really look. Note the drain piece where the hood connects to the body — that is from a CJ-3A.  And, last but not least, the Dash Plate is installed upside down and backwards …

“YOU ARE LOOKING AT A 1951 WILLYS JEEP M38 ARMY GREEN WITH ARMY GREEN INTERIOR,  HAS GO DEVIL ENGINE,    ALL DECALS , GAS CAN, SHOVELS, POWER TAKE OFF LOCKING FRONT HUBS, CANVAS TOP IS OFF .  THIS JEEP IS PROFESSIONALLY RESTORED.

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.”

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.”
