Clean title in hand. VIN# (serial #) on title matches original badges. I also have the “arctic” package for this jeep, which includes the hardtop and full doors. Jeep is a 3 speed manual and has the PTO unit (to the rear). Sears Roebuck lockout hubs. The engine is an F-134 “Hurricane” (as I’ve determined from the identification numbers on the block). I was told the jeep had been issued to Minot AFB in North Dakota. As I am told, I am the 3rd titled owner from the US Military. After being sold publicly, this jeep ended up on a farm in Minnesota. I also have a copy of the original technical order (manual) as issued by the US Military. The frame appears to only have surface rust and is not compromised. The jeep runs and start on the first turn! It has been updated to a 12-volt system.

Watson Hub.

“Family situation forces sale. 1953 Hurricane engine, T-90 transmission, new glass, newer tires, newly rebuilt generator, 12 volt, newer battery, new regulator. The tool channels were filled with bondo.

The id number is a MB number, but is considered a 1947 by the DMV. The tub is a MB. The jeep was modified for a film to look like a M38. The driver side has been smoothed over with bondo at some point, but the ribs for the tools can be seen on the inside.
The window is post war as well as the M38 grille.”

Mouse ate some wiring, so it doesn’t run at the moment. It might not take much to get it going again.

“1952 Willys Jeep. Selling due to the death of the owner. I do not know the details or history of this Willys. It is currently not running because mice ate some wiring. It should run but you should consider as non-running. A couple oddities…there was power brakes and a different gas pedal installed and it has street tires. I guess the plan was to have a daily driver. I don’t know. Anyway, other than that it’s pretty neat looking. I have the transferable registration. $4200.”

1951 M-38 Deforest, WI $5000

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: This site contains affiliate links for which I may be compensated.

Doesn’t run and has been sitting for 3 decades.

“This jeep has been in a storage shed for over 30 years, I have not had it running. It has a pretty solid body and has most of the original military features in tact. i.e. 24 volt electrical, headlight guards, bows, etc.. I do have a clear title which indicates the 1951 Willys status but does not reflect the same serial number?

There is a rust hole in the right rear corner and the passenger side floor board looks week, other wise pretty solid. The gas tank has been replaced by a civilian tank with smaller filler, not sure why. It does not turn over at this point, but I have not tried very hard.”
