1954 M-38A1 Provo, Ut $3000

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: , .

The Utah Bureau spotted this interesting find.  It appears the seller has had to drop the price from the original $4500.  It looks like it sports an aftermarket dash.  The seller indicates it has been driven little and there’s some ‘project’ involved, however it sure looks good on the outside!  It also has on overdrive.

“Rock Crawler – ’54 military jeep with V8 conversion.  307 Chevy with 327 steel crank and forged flat pistons, 487 heads.  Warn all range over-drive, 538 gears, dual Flow Master exhaust.  Full roll cage, 4 point harness – 33” tires.  Interior has been redone.  Runs strong but hasn’t been drives for years.

1952 M-38A1 Winnsboro, SC $4500

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: , .

This seems like a good price to me.

“This jeep was reconditioned in the late ’90. For the past two or three years it has been parked in my barn. As a result of not being run the fuel pump has stopped working. With a $30 rebuild kit and a complete cleaning of the fuel system this jeep will run fine. It has been used primarily as a show vehicle being displayed in various parades and events. It is in excellent condition and would make a fine addition to someones militaria collection. The markins are from the Korean War era and the unit was reconditioned to represent this period.”

Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art’s 1952 M-38A1

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1, Museums • TAGS: , .

I located a couple good pics of MOMA’s 1952 M-38A1 which was donated by the DaimlerChrysler Corporation Fund. I would suggest calling ahead to make sure this is still on display if you want to see it.  However, the M-38A1 is not the first jeep to be highlighted by MOMA.  In September of 1951, the Museum of Modern Art in New York decided to exhibit iconic automobile design as pure elements of art & design.  One of the eight vehicles chosen was the M-38, with the description as a “sharply rational vehicle”.  You can read more about that at the Jalopy Journal.

This pic is from a snapper of of NYC images for the NYCPIX blog.  There are some good, everyday sort of pics.  If you’ve spent time in NY, you’ll enjoy this site.

This photo is also from a NYC image blog.

Now I know what you are thinking;  Why install a non-military fording kit?  That’s what you were focused on, right?

“1952 Willys M38A1 90% restored to as delivered to the Marine Corps in 1952. This vehicle was converted to 12 volts with new non military wiring. It runs well and transmission as well as transfer case work well. There are some minor leaks in the seals of the rear diff and transfer case. The battery box was removed by previous owner to install heater. heater has been removed. Many new parts including lights, horn switch, dash, glove box cover, gauges, steering wheel and more. This M38A1 runs very well and has made the parade / car show circuit in upstate New york this summer with no problems. The fording kit is not military, but looks real cool. The starter and generator are not waterproof so don’t expect to ford any streams. Markings are correct for the 1950s era. There are minor blemishes on the tub, but no rust holes. The frame is solid and in excellent shape. It runs and stops. The motor is clean and runs well. Sorry guys, Danielle does not come with the Jeep.”
