“This is a 1951 Willys M-38 Military Jeep that I’ve owned for 50 years. In 1984, I took the whole Jeep apart, painted it and put it back together with a 1981 231ci Buick V-6 certified to have come out of a Buick Regal, wrecked with just 5,000 miles. Engine probably has about 15,000 miles on it now. With a high-rise Edelbrock intake, Holley 390cfm quad and headers, this little buggy has buckets of torque and plenty of power. Brakes are all brand new top to bottom. Ten years ago I had a new top made, complete with canvas side curtains and doors. The seats were reupholstered with black naugahide at that time. The transmission is the stock original Spicer T-90 three speed plus a 25% Full Range overdrive. Transmission was rebuilt 10 years ago. With low range, regular range and overdrive, this Jeep has nine forward speeds and three in reverse. Locking hubs in front.. Always garaged, this Jeep has been my baby all these 50 years, but it’s time to let ‘er go . Feel free to call or e-mail with any questions.”

1952 M-38CDN Ford Mesa, AZ $17,500

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: This was last up for sale in 2017.


“Nice almost all org 1952 M38 CND for sale. The good – Almost all org. Seems to be mostly a survivor. CND M38s are very rare under 3000 made as compared to 60,000 US. Rebuilt carb and all brake components are new. Runs great no shake or shudder at any speed does not jump out of 2nd at any time. Very Rare and much cheaper than a new side by side and it is worth more money every year. The bad- 12 volt now with non waterproof system. Some rust repair not perfect but good. Old dent on right rear looks to be not repaired correctly. Non org is the 12 volt and the lock out hubs on the front axle. The tool box was repaired at some time and is about 2 inches deeper than stock. Jeep is in AZ with clean title and AZ registration as Historic Vehicle. I have the complete roof with a few spare pieces and the canvas is good but the windows are not due to age and yellowing.”
