1951 M-38 Mardela, MD $13,100


Mark posted this converted M-38 at war jeeps.com.

” M38 1951 Military Jeep/Converted to look like a Willys WW2 Jeep

This is the perfect Jeep for the WW2 reenactor or someone who wants a dependable vehicle for parades or for 4×4 mudding.

I was told this is a rare Jeep as not many were made. Compared to the Willys WW2 Jeep.

This vehicle is a Willys 1951 M38 Military Jeep with a repro grill, hood, and windshield and new canvas to make it look like a Willys WW2 jeep has black out lights on dash, rarely used since reconditioned.

Gas tank has been relined so no rust, battery has been converted so its modern 12 volt not vintage, fuel pump runs great carburator has been rebuilt, new metal gas line, new distrubutor, new radiator, new tires no wear cylinoid starter was put on it so it starts right up.

Canvas alone is worth $1000.00 you get the top and windshield cover from Beechwood canvas .
The M38 was faster more robust than the willys and can 4×4 better. The transmission is better too.
It was rebuilt painted and has turn signals added so you can drive around safely. No rust inside and out.

Other mechanical things were done to it to make it run flawlessly.
It was redone electronically so it functions like a modern car you really can’t tell the differnce when you look at the engine unless your a jeep fanatic.
The points were taken out and replaced by a computer chip for faster start up and less tune ups.”
