1952? M-38A1 Clovis, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500.

(10/07/2016) It’s not running. It looks to have a Buick V6 with an Edelbrock dual plane intake. It’s not clear to me what the hydraulics were for (not much need for a snow plow in Clovis). This does have the aftermarket dash (I’ve yet to find an ad for it) and half doors, similar but not quite like the harris Dura-Door (seen below). They were made in Bakersfield, so that explains why they are seen on so mostly California jeeps. Here’s an example ad:


Now for the ad:

“Jeep Willys does run. Body’s is in decent shape. I bought as project but ended up getting another project (a Harley) and can afford to do both so I’m selling the jeep. It will need to be towed because it has no brakes. Well the brakes are there but they have been sitting for years. It has a engine swap some kind of v6. New battery. Carb was just redone by CADs on Fresno. Needs lots of tlc. But is a really cool jeep. I’d be willing to sell or maybe trade for small truck or Harley parts and cash. My
Bike is a 98 Dyna FXD so I need Evo parts. Like a pumped up engine. In no rush sell and need no help selling. Jeep is on non op.”
