“I bought a jeep project to learn rebuilding by. The people was to be involved to help is not here any more so I’m letting it go for a super price and will have to buy one much smaller. I only work with clear titles IN MY NAME and not like others that sell by bill of sales or in other people’s names. The amount of items not installed on it yet is in boxes and are new. The list is vast and it has had a lot done to it and very recent. Everything works on it and is ready to be inspected, lights, horn, 4×4 stick, etc.

“I have for sale a military 1949 jeep Willys. It’s all original, was running and driving about a year ago.(it just sits now) me and my boss had plans to restore it, but business comes first and have no time for it now. Obviously it needs a little attention for someone wanting it 100% restored.
There isn’t much rust on this jeep, most of it is surface rust. It just needs to be sandblasted and painted.”

1952 M-38 Murfreesboro, TN **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3200.

“S/N 62215. 36,412 miles. Owned since 2005. Windshield is the split type common to the CJ2A. I relocated the spare tire mount to the side, also common to the CJ2A so the tailgate would be more functional. Started the restoration 3 years ago. Stripped it down to the frame, sandblasted, primed and painted it the original olive drab. Everything relative to the brake system is new. Everything relative to both axles was removed, restored or replaced with new parts. New shocks. When I took it off, if it needed replaced I ordered it then, so I have most everything already bought. This is not a rust bucket like most you see! A little rust in the bed and the drivers floorboard is all there is and the metal is solid underneath. Upholstery is in very good shape. I have a summer top not shown. The paint is actually very good. You can see in the pictures that I polished the hood and the color came out. Further painting would be optional. The engine has been disassembled and the head and block tested. Found 4 broke rings. Everything relative to the engine is perfect, even the bearings. Standard rings will go back. Tranny/transfer case have no issues either. I have taken it as far as I can. I need the space in my garage so it has to go. This is a solid Willys and will make someone a fine jeep.”
