It’s a solid looking M-38 with very little rust. I know the seller just washed this just before taking these photos. I don’t understand letting water sit in the jockey box underneath the seat and a few other rust prone places shown in the photos?





“1951 M38 Army Jeep – Original Condition – Runs and Drives – RUST FREE!
Has Current Title

This has to be the best M38 I have ever owned. Body is rust free and very straight. I have done a few things to this M38 to get it back on the road but without messing with its original condition. The following have been done for drivability and safety. 1. New brake shoes and wheel cylinders. 2. New rubber and S-shaped metal brake lines. 4. NOS master cylinder 5. New fuel sending unit (correct M38 one). 6. Complete wash of vehicle to remove about 1/2” of dust and other stuff that had accumulated on the M38 over the years of being in storage.

1951 M-38 Sanford, ME **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2900.

“I have a 1952 Willys Overland M-38 project jeep for sale. This is a great example of the last flat fender military jeep. Completely rebuilt engine has less than 10 miles on it. The jeep is very restorable, and is in good shape for being 60+ years old. Has been converted to 12V, and wears a hood from a CJ2A. Body has some patches, and jeep has been painted red. Comes with a older hard top (not military). This is a project, but is all there, and I have almost $2k in the engine alone. If interested I can send pictures, or better yet, contact me to come see it. I do have at least 6 original wheels, 4 other tires and new tubes to go along with it. Roll bar is just resting in place. I will consider trades that take up less space. Possibly an ATV, Enduro motorcycle, enclosed trailer, try me..”
