https://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/cto/d/mesa-1952-m38-cdn-jeep/7286219474.html

“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.”

1950 MC-38? Charlotte, NC $6500

• CATEGORIES: M-38

UPDATE: Still Available.

The seller of this believes this to be one of the six M-38 pilot vehicles, also known as MC-38s: http://www.cj3a.info/sibling/m38/pilot.html …. However, after looking at the jeep, it has been modified to such an extent that even if it was one of the pilot models, there’s very little left of it. That said, I can see nothing that identifies it as an early model: 1) Serial number of MC 10149 is too late (serial number on data plates); 2) No full-floating axles (pilots had the WWII rear axles); 3) No battery box (battery box lid hinges were on the sides of the pilot vehicles); 4) wrong windshield setup  … the list goes on.
