“1953 Willys M38 flat fender with original Army data tags with Bill of Sale only, never titled or registered and not street legal. This little Jeep is in great shape with very little rust and lots of maintenance and upgrades. Includes a full top and doors, tow bar, rear hitch rack, rifle rack and a tote full of spare parts. It starts and runs, but can be a little finicky to drive smoothly and does leak oil from various places. It has a full new fuel system, new fuel tank, electric fuel pump and new downdraft carb. Overall this is a great rig and would be perfect for a deer lease or to teach a kid to drive a manual on a country road. Will consider trade offers for TJ Wrangler or ‘97-‘01 XJ.”

“Zero rust, clean frame, extremely smooth running M38. Every inch of this old Jeep has been gone over and been cleaned and serviced. 9 out of 10 mechanically with original data plates, and Army stencils. There are 47,851 miles on the restored odometer.

This original L134 runs and starts perfectly. Serviced by a new fuel system, Carter W-O carburetor, intake/exhaust manifold, radiator, and oil filter, this engine runs smooth and strong. A new 12V alternator and all new electrical system runs the lights and gauges.

You will not find any rust on the frame or body of this well-kept M38. Lots of old red “barn paint” was removed to reveal the original olive drab paint. With a little work, this body will be ready for new paint, or you can enjoy this Willys with authentic character.”

We took this jeep on a 250mi trip last fall and it did great. Front floors are solid and functional but hat channels underneath are in poor shape. All other rust is in pictures, mostly the passenger side. This is a good jeep to drive & enjoy as is, but would aslo make a good restoration candidate. The hood numbers are still legible and i uncovered markings which show that it was a radio jeep, with an AN/GRC-7 radio. Civilian gas tank in pics is not included, neither is the battery under the hood. Clean title in my name. Located in SW Indiana”
