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.

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.”
