1953 M-38A1 Various Places **SCAM**


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:
“Army Jeep Very good body, converted to 12 v new reduction starter, c00ntact: monicamiller107@gmail.com”

“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!

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??”

(08/22/2014) Listed as a 1953 M-38A1, the body and grille are from a CJ-5.

This old military version of the CJ, an MB, has been an incredibly dependable off road warrior for the family for over 30 years. Our 24 yr old daughter learned to drive in it. As the photos show, it has seen better times cosmetically, but the ol’ girl is as capable and reliable as ever. Posi in the front with limited slip in the rear, dual lever transfer case, power saginaw steering, CB, Chey 327 engine, runs strong, always cool with huge old Cadillac radiator, Warn hubs, new brakes all the way around, lots of rubber. Solid Half doors, Heavy tow bar. An old style performer. Restore or drive as is.”
