1951 M-38 Greene, ME $17,000

• CATEGORIES: M-38

This appears to have a replacement body, as it’s a mix of M-38 and MB styles. Also, it shouldn’t have full-floaters (though I think there are a useful add).

“Selling my M38 G-740 Korean War jeep. Great candidate for restoration or drive as is. T-90 3 speed transmission hi-lo and 4×4 in and out. Clean title in my name ready to transfer. These jeeps are better than any side by side UTV hands down. New tires and new “correct exhaust”. The jeep could use brake and steering adjustments. Lights aren’t hooked up. It has all the data plate minus one. Has the data plate behind the passenger seat too. Runs strong, will do 55+ mph. Looking for Ford GPW or parts.”

“I have two jeep willys for sale. Both have the original running gear still intact. The first is a 1952 with a clean texas title. It runs but the battery and cables aren’t the greatest so it’s easier to roll start it right now. The tires are good for pasture use but not for the road. It’s a pretty good jeep for a restoration if you’re looking for one to love on. The brakes need an overhaul and the fuel tank needs attention, we use an external tank on it. The second one does not have a title and I’m not sure what year it is. It’s whole but needs way more love or would be good for parts and such to help with fixing up the first. It ran years ago when we parked it but it would need alot of work. I’d like to sell both together but I’m open to offers”

“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.”
