Year? M-38A1 Eclectic, AL $2000

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: .

UPDATE: Thanks to Bill for correcting me.

There is some value here given the Meyer hardtop, but not clear how much.

“Pre 59 willys m38a1. Im assuming this is military or dod use jeep as it has the place for a shovel under the hood a 4in fuel filler and the compartment on the cowl section does open. What i do know is it has the dana 18 twin stick tcase which is worth a good bit by itself. Also has a t90 3speed, dana 25 front axel with dana 44 rear. Also has a hurricane f head engine that turns over by hand. Lots of new parts inside the truck. Engine and tcase were built in 77. I dont see this taking alot to be running and going again. Located in eclectic price is negotiable in person.”

1952 M-38A1 Wilbraham, MA $20,000

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: , .

Craig spotted this M-38A1 that’s been repowered with a Kubota diesel engine.

“1952 Willys M38A1 was brought back to life in 2015 after a two year restoration and modification was completed. Every nut and bolt was removed, inspected, replaced if damaged and reassembled to ensure this restoration did not leave any areas of the Jeep untouched. Two major modification were completed during the restoration. The electrical system was converted to a 12V system and the engine was replaced with a Kubota V2403 60 HP turbo diesel engine”

1975 M-606A2? Zebulon, NC $10,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ5, M-38A1, Other 4x4s

It’s not listed as a specific model in the ad, but perhaps it is an M-606A2? The rear passenger side filler is something that wasn’t originally listed on the documentation.

“you are about to view a fully restored 1975 Army Jeep 4WD that is sure to take a trophy in every show entered. It has the optional 6 cylinder and overdrive trans making it a joy to drive highway speeds 70 MPH with ease. It has free wheeling locking hubs for long distance travel. This Jeep is very reliable and runs like a dream. It has the heavy duty dana axles and an awesome parade siren. The 4WD works perfectly. This Army Jeep is the hit of every parade runs cool never overheats on parade duty and gets standing ovations when passing by. It has a clear Title and is ready to go to a new Home. This Jeep is a lot of fun sure to bring smiles to many who see it.”

1958 M-38A1 Watsonville, CA $2000

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

It runs and drives (at lower speeds).

“I have a project for sale. it is a korean war jeep M38A1.
It comes with a 4 cylinder engine non flat head. I swapped the axles from a ’77 cj5. Amc 20 and Dana 30, to make them work I adapted a T20 TC on the T90 Transmission which was rebuilt just like the front end. new brakes all around as well as new brake hoses and lines,new gas tank. Need work hence I called it a project. It drives but need tuning. it is registered but as non op since I don’t drive it.
EDIT: THIS JEEP IS A 59 YEARS OLD VEHICLE AND IT NEEDS WORK BEFORE DRIVING IT PROPERLY. THE ENGINE IS A F4 134 INLINE 4. THAT SAID THIS JEEP IS NOT SUITABLE FOR THE FREEWAY. IT WILL DRIVE SAFELY AT 45 MPH. YOU’D NEED TO BRING A TRAILER. THANKS FOR READING.”

UPDATE: Still Available.

(04/27/2017) Blaine spotted this ex-fire jeep. Engine is stuck at this time.

“Clear SD title. Tires are 90% and jeep is pretty complete. Front bumper and some other odds and ends missing. The engine was stuck when I bought it so I pulled the spark plugs and put some PB blaster in the cylinders to work on freeing them up. Jeep has matching body number to vehicle data plate. Has correct military motor. Some rust in the usual places and a few small spots were cut out in the bed where a fire dept had a water tank mounted. Also have roll cage included, but not pictured. I was going to restore this back to military appearance, but honestly have too many projects so I’m selling it for what I have into it. Here is your chance to own a genuine military army jeep!”

“Up for sell is a 1954 Jeep Willys M38A1. It has been great to us but we no longer need it due to us selling our ranch.
