“I have a 1951 Willys M38 military 1/4 ton Jeep in unrestored condition for sale. M38 ‘flat fender’ serial MC45xxx, built 12-51. The body does have some rust and body-putty patchwork but otherwise is in a reasonably restorable condition. The M38 has had its original engine replaced by a F4-134 Hurricane and thus a hole was cut in the hood for clearance. I do have a more correct L-134 engine listed for sale elsewhere. The 24v electrics were removed and rewired by 12v stock equipment. The brakes have been rebuilt and the vehicle was runnable as of 2008, but has been under tarp since then, and has deteriorated. I have a clear title, but it is not complete, will provide details if interested. Please call me for more info… Continue reading

Great to run around the farm or put in a parade. Dull OD green, not a shiney finish to attract the enemies’ attention. My wife did not like driving it near as much as I did.”

1951 M-38 Bryan, TX $6500


If interested, put “M-38” in the subject line.

“I have a 1951 Willys M38 for sale.
I was planning a complete restoration but seem to lack the time to do so. This vehicle is street legal.
It has been in the family for quite a long time. I purchased it from a cousin and they used it primarily on their hunting lease in South Texas. It has spent the last 20 years of its life covered in a barn.
After purchasing it, I purchased & installed 2 new batteries, 5 new tubes & tires, windshield, windshield molding, shifter boots, front blackout lights, fuel pump & OE fuel tank & cap. I overhauled the carburetor & flushed the cooling system. I also purchased (but have yet to install) some new steering components & speedometer cable.
This would be a great vehicle for hunting season and some local driving.
Please email me with M38 in the subject line so I know your not spam. ”

1951 M-38 Katy, TX **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $6000

(08/04/2015) It has a few mods.

“Selling my 1951 M38. My 51 runs great, it is street legal and all lights/ gauges are operational. Engine is a 1964 Buick Skylark V6.

Comes with a tow bar that mounts in the front. The rear seat is raised and mounts in the back (easy to remove). I have the original engine hood cover if you want to lay down the windshield. Some extra accessories I never got around to install. I also have a remote feeder and rack that attaches into the rear hitch if interested (purchased separately).

I used this a weekend driver (when it’s not 100 degrees) and a hunting vehicle. I have camouflage seat covers for front and rear. All lights have been replaced with LED’s (extremely bright). I’m not in a rush to sell so make me an offer. I have title (clean) and i’m the second owner.

I will leave this AD up until it sells or I decide not to. I lost my ranch in recent hill country floods so I’m hoping it will find a new home where it can be appreciated. Please don’t waste my time with low ball offers.”
