Mark just listed this over at war jeeps.com.
“an original jeep that was released from the Canadian Army in the late 1980’s, vehicle drives and runs great. Still has DND markings on it with all tarps.”
It is missing a few parts on the dash. The seller notes this is a frame off restoration, but one of the pics shows the primer being applied with the body (and other parts) still attached to the frame. Maybe I’m just confused.
“M38A1 MILITARY ARMY POLICE JEEP. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL TOTAL FRAME OFF RESTORATION. THIS JEEP WAS THE BEST JEEP I HAVE EVER RESTORED. UNBELIVEABLE RUST FREE BODY.

Needs some work.
“For Sale is a 1955 Willy’s Jeep. This is a 4 cylinder vehicle and is in very good condition. Tires and batteries are new. Engine turns over but that is as far as I’ve gone trying to get it started. This is a military vehicle. 4WD manual transmission with high and low range. I obtained this jeep through a storage unit auction. The jeep is as it was when coming out of the storage unit. I would also consider trades on a variety of items but if you want to make a trade please be sure the value of your item is commensurate with the value of the jeep or you could do trade plus cash if that is not the case. I have clear paperwork in the form of a “Transferrable NYS Registration” which is all you need (along with a sales receipt from me) to register this vehicle. Give a call if your interested. No responses to this email. Call or text only. The sale price is for the jeep not having been started. Once I go through the trouble of getting it started the selling price will be raised accordingly.”
Ad could use some better photos.

“1952, M38-A1, 24 volt military Jeep. Great restoration project.”
It’s a project, but appears to have potential.
“Selling my project 52 willys with a 283 small block chevy v8 and a 4 speed manual. My transmission went out in my truck so I’m forced to sell. I bought it from my uncle 1 year ago. It was sitting in his back yard for 10 years. sence then i rebuilt the carb. Replaced the rubber sections of fuel line and cleaned the hard lines. New fuel filters. New starter and alternater. Radiator was flushed at a shop. When I was running it i had it hooked up to a fuel cell. I have the fuel tank but the inside needs to be cleaned.
Still needs brake work and there is no clutch pressure. Its on 33s and a little lift but the tires are old and cracked. The floorboards have some rust.
It’s a project that’s worth finishing. ”
