“This is a real army issue willys that was in the korean war which means it has a lot of heavy duty upgrades from the civilian model, it’s pretty much all original except the front bench seat but i have the stock buckets too and the front bumper trailer hitch for towing it as well. Just had a brand new carb and fuel pump put on it and the thing runs great and only has 30,000 miles on it! This thing gets lots of attention and is a blast to drive and will climb up anything!
I love this little willys jeep and don’t really want to sell it but current situations demand it.
4,800 obo”

Mark listed this over at warjeeps.com.

“What you are looking at is an original 1951 M38 Jeep. The Jeep has the correct MC engine, but does have a repairable crack above the distributor. A correct RMC engine block will come with it. The body is pretty straight. It has the usual floor rust. Most of the rust through area is in the driver front floor, but just where the flat panels are meaning it would be an easier repair job if you know how. The engine is not locked and spins freely. The Jeep has most of its original paint from the Korean War era and also still has its hood numbers both are pretty unusual to see on a Jeep as old as this. I would prefer this old steel soldier to find a good home to bring it back to life!  I don’t usually sell my project Jeeps, but my dually needs 6 new tires.”

“Selling my 1952 Korean war military M38 jeep. Runs very good and shifts fine. Engine does smoke but has 12-13 p.s.i. oil pressure at idle warm so I suspect valve guide seals are in order. See compressions below. Many new parts including brake master cylinder, all wheel cylinders and pre bent brake line kit. ($250.00) Brakes work great! New correct fuel tank ($450.00) Original included with purchase. 12 volt, 3 wire alternator conversion. New12 volt gauge package. Ammeter, temperature, fuel gage and oil pressure all work. New head gasket with cylinders inspected with no scoring or cracks. Mating surfaces hand stoned and new high quality fel-pro gasket installed. Compressions are 110, 110,110, 106 respectively. Engine has original overhaul tag still installed as shown. A lot of stuff goes with this towards restoration. Has a 24 volt wiper motor installed that does work if hooked up but it is a little slow as it is now a 12 volt system.

Front floor boards do have some rust but it is in no means a “Flintstones Mobile”. Rear floor is good. Cowl battery box is in great shape. There is a small rust spot below driver’s door as seen. Ex Air Force “Personnel Services” jeep that was than delivered to the Civil Air Patrol. It has been modified to except a civilian top. Even has a heater that works great!! Comes with the 5-15″ civilian tires and wheels that are on it, plus 6-16″ military wheels as shown in the pictures. There is NO body filler on this and only very minor dents. Windshield glass is in like new condition with no fading. Paint is ugly but if you have some imagination you can see the potential. Frame and bumpers are in great shape but the front will need minor straightening. All lights are working as they should, including “Black out” marker lights but the right rear tail light is wired to the left so that they both work at the same time versus the military configuration that only one side worked at a time depending on the light switch position. Horn is functional but not connected as it is missing the rod that goes in the steering column. Can easily be made as the specs are on the interweb. This is one fun vehicle to drive! Be the first one on your block to have one!! Sold with bill of sale only.”

Doesn’t run. Has PTO winch.

“Selling a 1952 Willys Jeep. I don’t know everything about it — haven’t heard it run in a while — but now I’d call it fair condition. Selling as is. My Father used and maintained through the years. With some light maintenance, perhaps carburetor or battery attention, I’m sure “the huntin’ Jeep” would work great. Or could be a good parts donor.

Once a very cool flat fender jeep, looks WWII style, it’s complete and was working when parked. Engine is a Chevy 350, Muncie transmission, big power driven winch, roll bar, alum mag wheels. A tow hitch was around at one time. Asking $3200.”
