“this jeep has a 2.5″ suspension lift. Buick 231 V6 swap with a t90 transmission and dana 18 transfer. Original military axles with 5.38 gears (dana 44 rear, dana 25 front). I have the data plates as well as the serial plate. New plastic gas tank. Frame is in perfect condition, fenders are great, hood is a little dented but not rusty, tub needs floor pan work and some minor panel work. I bought this jeep to build an offroad toy with but just purchased a wrecked Wrangler Rubicon and dont have the time to build two jeeps (plus I have a Wrangler unlimited for my daily driver). I am negotiable a little bit on the price but dont waste my time with ridiculous offers. I have a ton of pictures I can email to serious buyers, currently the motor is out and on a stand in my shop, fenders hood and grill are removed and stripped of paint. I had planned to wheel the jeep in the body shop soon and replace the floors and do the body work.”

1954? M-38 Kanosh, Ut $3500

• CATEGORIES: M-38, M-38A1, Unusual • TAGS: .

Thanks to a reader named Brett for pointing out this jeep.  The front part of the jeep appears to be a M-38, though the year is off.  On the other hand, the rear body on this jeep looks suspiciously CJ-5ish.  I’d like to see some close up pics to see how the front and rear of the body has been merged.  Perhaps it is a M-38 and 1954 M-38A1?

“1954 Jeep Military. !2 volt alt, 4 cyl flat head engine, front and rear seats,body in good condition. Brake wheel cylinders have been replaced. Body is in good condition with little or no rust. Selling Jeep and buying 4 wheeler. Come and see it at 210 North Main Street, Kanosh, Utah 84637.”

3 Jeeps = GPW, CJ-3A, M-38 Davenport, IA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, GPW (Ford MB), M-38

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

The GPW looks in the best condition, followed by the M-38 (incorrectly listed as a CJ-3A) and then the CJ-3A.

“I am selling my hobby because of a line of duty accident that has left me with no other option. these jeeps were bought at an estate auction and they only have a bill of sale, because they have always been government owned before the last owner. The CJ3A was started on a off frame overhaul and the body was set back on to sell. The GPW is as I purchased it they both ran and drove off the trailer. the last one is just parts. thank you for your interest, this pains me to do this but I have no other choice.”
