1951 M-38 Gettysburg, PA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was No Price.

This appears to have potential.

“If you are looking for a military jeep to restore this is it. Every thing is original and it is 99 percent complete. I bought it from the daughter of an older man who had planned to restore it for his grandson. However he passed and it stayed in a garage for many years. It is currently in my garage. I have decided to see if I can sell it as is. If not I’ll do the restoration in the summer. It has some rust but nothing serious. The frame is excellent. This is a time capsule for someone that wants a true military jeep. ”

It’s a project.

“Selling a 1951 Willys M38 Jeep. This is a cool project that I no longer have time or resources to finish. I have had Jeep for 13 years and have done alot of work to this point. Jeep is M38 frame, body, drive train with a Dana 41 rear axle. The front grill is from a CJ3A. Jeep has a 4 cylinder Chevy engine out of a mid 60’s car.Jeep has power steering as well. Jeep ran, drove it around the block and then started taking Jeep apart, etc., Jeep has custom 1 1/2 body lift, heavy duty shackles, and is set up for dual shocks with a very rare, vintage heavy duty Rancho dual shock lower mounts. This is a project and needs to be wired, needs a radiator, seats mounted, steering colum built. Jeep has upgraded 11″ brakes. I was building this Jeep to look Military on top and hot rod below.Body is fair and has some rust on drivers side front floor.Any ways, thanks for looking and please feel free to ask questions.”

“I don’t know much about these Jeeps. I recently acquired this Military vintage Jeep from the previous owner who obviously put a lot of effort in restoring this vehicle both mechanically and body. A few after market refinements were put in place including: electric fuel pump, alternator, turn signals, back-up lights, gauges, exhaust. Looks like the entire drive train has been gone through. It starts and drives great, 4WD works, brakes well, solid steering, good clutch etc. Looks to have a full floating rear axle, front locking hubs, wheels and tires in great shape.

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000.

(10/24/2016) It’s an ex Forest Service jeep.

“1951 M38 Barn find. Has been sitting inside since 1970. This jeep has never been licensed or registered for the road. It was bought at government auction and put away. As seen in pictures, there is a US Forestry plate riveted to the dash. This jeep was given to the Forestry where it was used and then sold at auction. It is rust free. Beautiful hat channel underneath. It has 28,000 original miles. It is 6 volt. I have all the original 24 volt generator, distributor, voltage regulator that goes with it. It is just the way the government sold it. It runs like a top. Absolutely beautiful.

Has original gas tank, all cleaned out and small repair. Still has the screen in the gas tank. The only thing that appears to have been added, or possibly put on by the Government before the sale, are the rims and the motor. Motor # does not match the body #. No bondo. No repairs have been made to the body. Brake master cylinder needs to be repaired or replaced. A brand new one comes with the jeep. Carburetor brand new rebuild. New battery, water pump. Ready to go. Call for more info $6,500 Would consider a partial trade for WWII jeep.”
