Here’s an unusual setup.
“Owned by a local irrigation district and used to haul concrete to canal since the 60′s. Back has been cut out to allow dump to operate and passenger seat is gone so dump parts could be placed there, Engine does not appear to be original but runs and was maintained but needs a good tune up. Spent 200 on rebuilding dump so I could haul concrete threw narrow openings and haul rocks. Have not used it since I rebuilt it but did try it a few times. Dents from years of abuse. Original stars. No data plates or title. Irrigation district lost title and some dumb deputy told them to sell it to get a salvage only paperwork. Tried to explain to them what they did but they were not getting it. Said this is fine since it was told to them by a deputy. I do have a bill of sale. And if you can get them to understand great. Does have numbers on frame. I wanted to trade it for a Minelab metal detector or a White Detector and probe and hoops worth about 1500. ie: a V3i white or Minelab Safari. Might have tail light covers and a few smalls that go with the M38A1. (Triangle on back not included)”

It appears pretty solid and complete. I believe this was recently painted. (Here’s an earlier version before the paint)
“1952 M38A1 4×4 Military Jeep. 320-237-8398″
This has the hinged grille, so likely an early M-38A1.
“I have an old military jeep that I have already stripped down to the frame ready for restoration, I would rather see it go to someone who has the time and knowledge to restore it back to original condition. Does have title but the title says it’s a 58, It does not have vin plate on the dash, It needs very little parts, body is in good condition, very little rust.

Here’s a good story about a young Teen named Ben Zenger reported in the Winston-Salem Journal on Wednesday. At 9 years old he decided he wanted a jeep. He saved up his own money and, with his parents approval, bought one: A 1954 M-38A1 that needs some work. Check out all the information at the website:
I did have a video below, but it auto-started with commercials, so here’s a still of Ben instead. Go to the website to see the video.
The M-38A1 runs.
“1945 Willie CJ2. 1955 Willie CJ5. Titles for both. 1955 runs, shifts, stops. Complete but not together. Hard top available. New radiator, gas tank, steering wheel. 1945 not so much. Two windshields, four fenders, extra stuff. The pair and not separable. Call evenings and speak loud and slow to recorder.”
This hunting jeep includes a water cylinder holder.
“I am selling my hunting Jeep. Its a four cylinder, 4×4 with a feeder mounted on the back and a cooler rack and water cylinder holder. It runs well and is in satisfactory condition for its age. It would be a good candidate to re-do.”
This jeep looks solid. Includes a Warn winch.

No engine issues, runs like new, good oil pressure. Complete exhaust out to the back, very quiet running. Original 24volt system. Charges nice. Gauges all work good. Speedometer works good.
