1951 M-38 Elizabeth City, NC **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5000.

Craig spotted this one. It has some rust, but given the completeness and condition of everything else, this is definitely worth a look.

“1951 Willys Jeep, runs and drives. Looks good, it needs a few things but at 65 years old we all need a few things. I’ve seen much worse go for much more, so $5k is reasonable for condition. Has canvas top (not shown). Tires are almost new.
$5k cash
Reason for selling, it’s my Dad’s and he can no longer drive, so I’m selling for him.
Clear title.
You must come in person, no checks of any kind. No BS. If you text that fine, I’m going to tell you in my reply to call me. I’d rather talk than text, it weeds out all the scamers.”

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

Looks solid. You can buy the M-38 for only $8500 by itself.

“I have a older restoration. 1950 M38 done 30 years ago when nos parts were easy, with summer top, grc 9 radio set, back seat ect. Its 100 % rust free and stright with no bondo, one of the best m38 I bought then. now the bad news, I used it 30 years ago to drive into my silver mine (worked great) and then parked it in the barn, were it has sat since. So the gas is ugly, batterys are shot, tires do hold air and look great with 100 % tread. (but they are still 30 years old) brakes dont work, the seals will need replacing. I now need the storage and the jeep has to go , price is 8500.00 there is also a M100 1/4 trailer for sell. The m100 trailer is real nice, right hitch, cover, used it with my m38 jeep, the trailer has not moved in 30 years, been stored inside the barn. I need the space. The good, body, paint, hitch,fenders ect , not so good, tire shop broke 3 lung nuts, studs years ago to fix a flat so the lugs need to be replaced, the floor is a little wavy (nothing bad but it is not 100% new, I used it to haul my supply in to the mine )1800.00 or if you buy the jeep and trailer 9800.00 Please no tire kickers, I only want monny, no trades, and I dont need any help to sell the jeep. In short if you dont have the cash dont call. ”

front lower cowl. The body can be restored as body panels are available. The transmission and transfer case are present and worked when parked. The engine is not original to the jeep but is the correct style 134L Willys engine.

Steering gear box has been removed and needs to be rebuilt.
The military data plate shows a serial number of MC10427, the Willys Patent Plate shows a serial number of MC10485. This would place this jeep as being between the 419th and 477th one built of approximately 63,000. I have a clear TX Title for the vehicle.
