UPDATE: Still Available.

(09/26/2017) A factory bed conversion for a CJ-5? Anyone ever run across that? It’s listed as a 1952, but it has CJ-5 grille and body at the very least. Looks like a ventilating windshield, too (thanks Dave).

1952 M-38A1C Boise, ID $975

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

Looks like it has some value.

https://boise.craigslist.org/pts/d/m38a1-cj5-willys-military/6339554945.html

1952-m38a1c-boise-id

“This is a 1952 M38A1C military jeep. it’s also a rare artillery version. This was before the CJ5 came out but they shared the same DNA. has the original hood numbers. previous owner wanted it preserved. that was my intention but the buyer backed out of our deal.

I restored and still own one of these and they are a beautiful piece of history. Vets love them. Sadly the wife says no more to my military collecting and it has to go. If she said it then it must be true.

it’s restorable or would be good for parts to finish yours. the rolling chassis has the body, fuel tank, front clip, windshield, bumper, complete grill, pintle hook, radiator and seats. The T90 transmission and Dana 18 transfer case are present but removed, and it has a rare valuable Rancho overdrive attached. Driveshafts are there. Top bows are of the CJ5 civilian era. it’s remarkably rust free on the tub, grill, windshield and fenders, except the tub was cut around the cowl and the tool box is rusted out. i’m sure the hat channels need attention. Many valuable and very hard to find parts are still on this.
what is missing: no canvas or top, bumperettes, bellhousing, no engine or attached engine parts, ebrake drum or handle, or spare tire carrier. These are still available aftermarket and easy to find.
