1952 M-38 South Carolina **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was $13,500.

The M-38 looks solid, but that top sure could use some tightening.

“I have a beautiful 1952 willys m38 for sale. This vehicle is ready to drive! It runs and stops beautifully. Its been owned and preserved by a collector since 1969. The vehicle has very little rust. This is one of the nicest m38 I have run across. The body, steps, hat channels , and floors are almost completely rust free just surface. The passenger underseat tool box is rust free(even has the original jack and tire iron). The motor is clean and runs great! It still has the original carb as well as battery box(always missing). Its 24volt and looks to have all original style wiring harness in great shape. The interior has the matching data tags, gauges, switches etc. Lights work. The canvas seats and top looks to be original and are in great shape. The doors, and side curtains can be removed. Very rare to find a Jeep preserved and as complete as this one. It looks like it’s been frozen in time. Haven’t even washed it yet! The 4 wheel drive works great and the transmission shifts smoothly and is tight. The one thing it could use is bushings in the steering box as it is squeaky 15 parts or just a greasing. Clean and clear matching title!”

“This thing rolled of the line in 1952. Built for greatness? Absolutely. It runs like a complete champ. This 3-speed manual shifts incredibly. You’re probably thinking “Oh no it’s a stick, but I don’t know how to drive a stick…” If that’s the case, it’s time for you to sack the heck up… Put on your learning pants and let me teach you one of the most essential life lessons you can have as an American citizen.

Don’t worry the tricky stuff has already been done on this bad to the bone 1952 Willy’s M38 Military Jeep. The tranny has been rebuilt with all new gears. As usual, I’m writing slowly because I know you can’t read fast… Motor was completed prior to me purchasing. While, I’m unsure of how many miles are this thing, I’m sure it’s got some memories. Some of the gauges are working, some are not. Which is pretty common for an almost 70 year old vehicle! I have installed a new alternator, 12 volt battery, and have changed all the bulbs. I do have the old 6 volt generator which will go with it.

For Sale: NICE ’52 Willys M-38. Not restored. This is an Authentic, numbers matching, unmolested all original flat fender low hood Willys M-38 Military Jeep.
Clear Blue Texas Title.

All the manuals and original owners handbook will go with the Jeep. This jeep was owned by a retired USAF officer who recently passed. It has been under cover and in storage for a significant amount of time. This Jeep is not perfect, but this is the best M-38 solid restoration candidate I’ve seen in YEARS. Floor boards are BEAUTIFUL and SOLID. Tool Kit floor is PERFECT. The only rust-through on the entire Jeep is in the RR quarter panel at the fender support, and it’s minor, as shown in the pictures. Authentic U.S. Army markings still intact and legible. The windshield frame is flawless, the glass is excellent. This Jeep even has the winter top bows installed for the winterization kit and the tracks on the windshield frame and the bottom door tracks.

Year? M-38 Imperial Valley, CA $2500

• CATEGORIES: M-38

Has some mods.

“Here is a Willys M38 Military Jeep. This is a project jeep it does not run but wouldn’t take much to get it there. These were built for the military from 1949-1952. The M38 was a military version of the civilian Jeep CJ-3A. Its all there just needs a little TLC and it will be ready to go. Solid body no rust it has an F-Head engine which was used in Jeeps from 1950-1971. Its not the flat head engine which was the original engine the M38 had. It has the original seats along with the bench seat in the back. I was planing to restore it but I have another jeep that I am finishing up and I don’t plan to do another one. I have the title in hand and its clean.”
