1950 M-38 & M-38A1 Nebraska $1000

• CATEGORIES: M-38, M-38A1 • TAGS: .

The flattie looks to be a M-38, so the year should be 1950 or later.  The other I’m guessing to be a M-38a1.  It’s a bizarre parking job.

“The red jeep ran when i got it 5yrs ago. The drive train worked good too. It has a title. The yellow jeep has the motor taken out of it and is in the back of it same with the front clip. The drive train is good on it though. It dosent have a title. I was gana take the two and make on nice one. And take the rest of the other one and make a trailer for it. I will bring them to denver for you for an extra 300. If you have any questions feel free to ask @ mrdobrinski@gmail.com”

1951 M-38 Boise, Id **SOLD**?

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, M-38

sheep_wagonsUPDATE: I dropped by the seller’s house today to check this jeep out.  Kim’s father is the actual seller and Kim is selling it for him. Both father and son rebuild wagon’s, with Kim specializing in Sheep Wagons (see pic to the right).  I suspect the large Basque population in southern Idaho (5th largest community of Basques in the world) fosters this unusual hobby (at least I’ve never seen these anywhere else).

As for the jeep, it turns out to be a pretty stock M-38 that runs.  It’s got some rough edges and needs some paint.  It’s got the dual battery setup.  It could use new seat covers and a new gas tank and a few other items.  A professional mechanic has done some work on it and can provide more specific information.

1952 CJ-3A? Lake Forest, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $5500.

This looks more like a M-38 to me, but I can’t tell conclusively.

1952 Jeep CJ3A. This jeep has a 1955 F head engine instead of the original flat head engine. I have lots of extra parts I bought at a military auction many years ago. I have a soft top for it. This Jeep has NO rust and ran great last time I went hunting in it which was 1994. it has been stored inside ever since. Even the interior is good. I put in a new gas tank with non corrosive liner. It needs a battery and most likely will need a carburetor rebuild from sitting so long and will have years of trouble free hunting or whatever. It’s not fast (max 50 mph) but it will climb a tree.”

M-38 Pilot models from the CJ-3A info site

• CATEGORIES: Features, M-38 • TAGS: .

Bob Westerman has written a detailed overview of the M-38 pilot models.

From the website, Bob writes:  “NEW: 1/1/2009 In the time since this web-page was published some new photos of the Pilot Models have surfaced. The photos reveal that the pilot models were in a constant state of change as different features were implemented and tested. The new information shows that some previous assumptions are no longer valid. See the MVPA’s magazine Army Motors #126 for the latest information.

Visit the CJ-3A.Info website to learn more about the M-38 Pilot model history.
