1950 M-38 Auburn, CA Auction

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

Art spotted this almost stock M-38 with a Stewart Warner heater.

1950 Willys M38 Model MC Arctic Jeep 4 X 4. Serial # MC 30993. Mileage reads 68,059. Powered by the original 4 cylinder Go Devil engine. 3 speed manual transmission with 2 speed transfer case and locking hubs. This is an actual Military issue Arctic model Jeep with the rear body reinforcement panels. The top and doors are removable and the heater can be run without starting the Jeep (heater has not been tested but is reported to be working). This Jeep starts easily and runs good, the transmission works as it should.

The Willy’s M38 Jeeps were only built from 1949 to 1952 and this is a nice example of a Korea War vintage Jeep with an unusual Arctic service upgrade. To watch the video.”

1952 M-38 Belle Plaine, MN $9400

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Still Available.

(09/27/2015) “Very nice flat fender Military Jeep.. Runs good. Solid body. Appears to be very original. 4 wheel drive works great. The M38’s will go just about anywhere. Not much bigger than a 4 wheeler with way more torque. One of the absolute best vehicles off road. Not the best on the road. Great for a cabin or hunting. Has near perfect olive drab cloth top as well. No doors.”

“We are selling our original 1951 Willy’s Army Jeep. This jeep has the original Overland Jeep Arctic Top and Doors and gas heater. It is in the same condition as when I bought it 6 years ago. All I have done is replace spark plugs, submergable wires and batteries. I have enjoyed this jeep, have only driven it in a few parades. You can view the jeep on youtube to see it run. I welcome any and all questions, so please ask. I am not a jeep mechanic, and I do not know alot about them. I am just a military enthusiast. Nor have I read all the books. I know enough to enjoy the jeep. So please ask questions.

Needs some wiring, but may be worth a look.

“Body-off-frame metalwork, with frame and underbody painted years ago. Exterior paint and body work has not been completed.
Two new batteries, points, coil, and wires
Valves adjusted
24V electrical system
Starter turns slowly – could use a rebuild. Starts with hand-crank.
Good power on acceleration and running down the road, but idle is not smooth — may be carburetor related .
Brake system has been rebuilt years ago, and works well.
Gas tank in excellent condition, and appears to have been coated internally.
Will need wiring work to make lights functional.”
