1952 M-38 Chandler, IL $2500


UPDATE: Price dropped to $2500.

(08/26/2016) Runs. Has an f-head, but seller has an l-head, too.

“I got a M38 that the previous owner installed the engine out of a CJ-3B into it and as such it makes the carburetor stick out thru the hood. They also installed a hood scoop on it which was really big, so I cut it off and when I did, I found the hood to not be in such good shape. So as you see in the pics there is a huge hole in the hood that I have not got around too. I have found and purchased the correct motor for it from a guy in OHIO. I don’t know if it runs or not because I haven’t had the time to mess with it either, but the engine goes with it for the price shown. The Jeep has rust on it, it has some bondo on it, the floor pan is somewhat rusted out as well. The engine in it was running when I parked it and I haven’t messed with it much. Need to sell, I don’t have time anymore to mess with it. Too busy mowing my GRASS.”

It’s a project.

“I have been building my willys for 3 1/2 years and its time to make room for the all the new kids toys. The main focus for me has been the drive train.

It is just beautiful… never fired- new babies and new job = no time! lol… It has a K case 4wd turbo 350 rebuilt, advance adapter kit to the rebuilt stock dana spicer 18 transfer case. I have drivelines, u joints, seats, 500 radiator brand new, new wiring harness, powder coated intake, powder coated water pump, 160 amp powder coated alternator, mini starter, etc… way to much to list. I just want someone to enjoy it! Mama wants it gone asap. the drivetrain is worth more than 3500- the jeep is just a bonus:) If you want to come see it please let me know. I am firm on the price! If you have something you would like to trade I am open to hear it. Cash would be best though. ”
