Looks good, but needs a battery at the very least.
“Restored M38A1 1955 Willys M38A1. Has been sitting on jacks in garage for about 20 years. Selling as is. Was driven frequently for a short period until it was finally parked. Probably just needs a new battery, gas and oil. Clear title.”
“This is an original unmodified military M38a1. (the civilian version was the Cj5)
Runs well. Less than 5,000 miles on rebuilt engine. Stops straight.
Registered. Clean title.
Has original data plates (indicates serial number/date of delivery).
Body is original. No body rot. No additional welding or cutting to the body anywhere. Nothing has been modified, with the exception of added turn signals, third brake light and the Warn all speed overdrive. (That’s an overdrive for each gear….nice to have since these military Jeeps from that era were geared a bit low).
The electrical system is correct at 24v along with the correct distributor, voltage regulator and generator. Springs are original.
Original/stock rims and NDCC tires. Not lifted.
Has 3 year old canvas winter top, no side curtains or doors included.
Has correct pintle trailer hitch.”
Runs roughly. The front bumper isn’t original.
“Built by Kaiser – same as Willys. rust free, converted to 12 volts, was stored in garage for last five years, runs rough, very low mileage, planned to restore to military specs but too many projects. Five new tires.”
UPDATE: Still Available.
(09/10/2014) Might be a good price.

There are multiple ads across the country for a 1953 M-38A1 for only $3000. This too-good-to-be-true offer is made using a gmail address that is also selling other vehicles across the country. It looks like a scammer to me.
Here’s the ad:

“1952 Willy’s Jeep Forest fire truck;
This is a unique fire truck in that it is a Willy’s Jeep AND easily fits in your garage! Former military unit (ex Marines, I believe). Runs and drives great- needs some TLC for the true Willy’s Jeep detail. It appears to be “shop built” either by military or a fire dept. as a fire pumper, but used a “Barton” front mount 500 gpm conversion kit of the day. The side compartments are ex-ammo boxes!
“1954 m38a1 military jeep
Runs good- but will need a starter
will need paint and some body work if you want it for show.
If you want it to just beat and knock around in- your good to go

It doesn’t run, but does have an unusual hardtop.
“i have a 1952 Jeep M38A1 for sell, it is not running and engine status is unknown. has home made top and doors that can be removed. minimum rust not bad of shape”

Doesn’t run, but looks sound. I like the vintage top.
“Fun vintage jeep!

Photo taken the day it was pulled from the barn, complete with 29 years of dust!
Lost the barn storage due to property sale. Need to pass this one on to a real jeep enthusiast!”
All these jeeps need a close look.

1) jeep is plow jeep enclosed excellent in snow removal these jeeps are ALL WILLYS
2) jeeps are 1953 m38-A1’s are have all the night vision parts and are complete excellent for parts or more if you like to restore (one missing radiator)
I have xtra tires and rims both 15 & 16”
I also have one new military gas can and many others in nice condition

the plow jeep is $3500 firm
the military jeep is $3500 firm
the m-38’s are $1500 each”
Looks like there is some value. Seller would like to trade for a newer running jeep, which suggests an overestimation of the value. Obviously NOT a WWII jeep.
“his Jeep has all original parts all except the seats, the engine is a F-Head 134 Cub. Inch. with a 3 – speed manual Transmission.
The WWII jeep is a restoration project it is in good condition considering the age of the Jeep very little rust.
The jeep has an extra engine head and it also has two extra tires (all the tires need to be replaced)
I would like to sell it for cash although I would be interested in a newer running Jeep as a trade???
MAKE ME AN OFFER – $$ OR TRADE For an new running jeep??”

“1954 Military jeep runs and drives in great condition for 60 year old jeep body has very little rust is garage kept.It was used be a fire dept for years that it is the reason for the yellow paint.”
Mark just listed this nice looking M-38A1 at warjeeps.com
“Painstakingly correct, frame off restoration to return this Jeep back to the original delivered condition. Vehicle is 98% original with New Old Stock (NOS) parts used. Paint color was researched and original military spec color was applied. Canvas consists of a new winter soft top, side curtains, seats, and doors. Have good title with 14,500 mi. on odometer. Engine is a 134 CID “F” head Hurricane that runs great. Included is a RT 67 Radio set with ops manual, antenna, and storage pouch. New exhaust system, brake lines, hoses, rebuilt wheel cylinders, master cylinder, new Carter 4S carburetor, fuel lines, fuel tank. Correct batteries for the 24 volt system, hold downs, and cables. Correct shovel positioned under hood, new dash data plates, and correct gauges. This particular Willy’s has been restored to its former glory using authentic parts. This vehicle would be a real competitor in any military vehicle show.”
