“On non opp with pink slip in hand..


A perfect project for restoration. Only 2 coats of paint original green and the red on it now.
Only rust is in tool box and small patch passenger rocker panel.
Non the Jeep Army version this is the Marine Corps version. You can read the hood numbers all Dash plaques are complete from what I can see it’s only missing the starter. If you’re looking at this you know what it is and what to look for in Parts alone they can be parted out for more.”

10(?) Disassembled M-38A1s Shawnee, OK

(12/19/2019) Various M-38A1 parts, include an M-38A1C body.


“I have 10 Willys Jeep frames and tubs from the 1950’s. They have been in a wooded field since the 1970’s so they are weathered and some are rusted. Some have fenders, leaf springs, steering wheels, etc and some don’t. No motors or transmissions but I do have various parts (see pics). Prices start at $500 but I’ll ask more for the Jeeps with more parts. I’m not a Willys expert so can’t give a lot more details as far as year, model, etc.”

“This is one of last 2 of 9 military vehicles sold from my collection, It is is a M38A1 and is in fair to good condition. I describe this jeep as being partially restored. While it does have some minor rust, it would not take much effort to restore it. The body is complete and seems to be in decent shape. Add a new paint job and you will have a nice looking jeep. The jeep runs and drives very well. It starts right up and the brakes seem to also work well. The tires are dry rot and need to be replaced. It comes with a nicely done Plastic Replica 30 caliber machine gun with 4+ ‘ stand and 30 caliber cartridge box (needs to be installed on Jeep) plus what appears to be a Vietnam era flak jacket. Interested parties are encouraged to personally inspect and drive the vehicle. It does not have a title and I doubt it has ever been titled.”

“* have a 1955 Jeep Willy wagon, in a 1955 Jeep cj2. I am selling them both of them as a package deal or separate. I am asking $3,200. Both Jeeps have original Transmissions. The Jeep cj2 no engine but original transmission with PTO. The Willys wagon original transmission with a 273 Chrysler Barracuda engine out of a 67. The 273 cranks over I haven’t had time yet to fiddle with the starter cuz it is dragging, I am told that it will start and run. Both of them are projects, could be a wonderful Father and Son project together. Have any questions message me”

“This M38A1 was owned by the San Juan County Sheriffs dept in Silverton CO for 35+ years,is part of our high mountain Colorado history. It was bought by a local in 2001 and remained in Silverton until now. I’ve watched this rig for the past 11 years and recently got my hands on it. With a family of 4, 3 dogs and a brand new house I dont know what the Hades I was thinking but at the time I had to have it. I have owned a lot of military Jeeps in the past, have had many M38A1s and know a good one when I see it.

This rig has a very nice Kelly hard top, converted to 12 volt, has the wrong seats in it but otherwise is very original and complete. There are very few “extra” holes, nothing has been hacked or cut up, body, floors, etc are extremely straight, rust free and would make an excellent restoration base or drive it as is. There is a matching spare wheel and military gas can in the back.The tool box floor is perfect as is the glove box floor. This Jeep has no real rust, is surface only, the mud is my fault, I live on a dirt road (see underside photos) The engine starts right up, no smoke, sounds good, brakes are good, shifts tight etc as you would expect with 8K miles.”
