CJ-2A, M-38A1 & CJ-5 Alexander City, AL No Prices


UPDATE: Still Available

(12/05/2013) “We have owned a number of Jeeps through the years and these are the last four we have for sale. 1975 CJ5 has 41k actual miles and includes many extra parts such as a 30 gal aux tank, new black seats and supports, and a new old stock Brass and Copper AMC Radiator. 

The 1952 M38A1 was a US Army model with USGI winch. All mechanics on the Jeep were rebuilt back on the 1970′s but had been stored since Grand-dad died in 1998. 
The 1978 RHD DJ is very solid–runs great–and has extra passenger seat installed. 
The 1957 CJ has only 8k miles on it–very solid body with some unusual US Army Air Corps features (extended top bows and windshield and full floor cut out on door sills)–all factory. 
$3500 each or $12,000 package price.

I am selling my 1955 Willy M38A1, that I have restored myself, not by a professional restorer and registered in Nueces County for $9,500. The engine, however; was overhauled by a professional mechanic. The unit has new brake lines, fuel tank, seat cushions and various other items listed below. I am interested in selling it to someone that is interested in the continued preservation of this rare military vehicle. It is 59 years old, therefore it is not in perfect condition and will be sold as is. It is asked that only serious interested buyers contact me at show contact info or text me with your name and number at same. These military vehicles are hard to come by and even those that are non-running rust buckets sell for a premium. Those who are knowledgeable about these vehicles know that these are off road vehicles and not the smoothest riding vehicles or the quietest riding vehicles. Vehicle is being sold as is, where is, with no written warranties.

1955 M-38A1 Grantsville, UT $2500


Solid and runs. Might make a good restoration candidate.

“Rare 1955 Willys M38A1 Korean War Era “Jeep”
Straight rust free great running little Jeep with an Arctic Kit(hard top and doors)
This little jeep was in storage for a long time and was not running. With some work it is now purring like a kitten. It is complete and has been updated to a 12 volt system. It still has some of the cool old military lighting, gauges and switches. This would make an AWESOME candidate for restoration or to just put around the farm or mountains. It still needs some brake and clutch work. To be fully drive able.”

Looks solid.

“Up for sale is this very nice 1952 Willys M38A1. This Jeep was purchased a few years ago and had underwent a full frame off restoration before purchase. It has been lightly used ever since and is still in very good condition! The paint still looks great since the restoration and there are a few chips in it from normal wear and tear and I will try and show any imperfections in the pictures. It comes with a complete canvas top and doors that are in great condition with no tears. All drive terrain and electrical systems had been gone through and are in perfect working condition. The original 24 volt system is still working great and she fires up every time. The original Brass data plate is still intact! This is a great driving jeep and runs and drives like it did when it was new. If you’ve been interested in an army jeep now is your chance to own one!

If you have any question about the jeep or something more you would like to see that was not shown in the pictures please feel free to email me, call me or text me at 360-601-fourzero30 and I will be happy to answer any questions the best I can.”

Parade ready.

“This is an awesome completely rust free, recently restored and VERY CLEAN 1953 Wills M38A1. This Jeep underwent a frame off restoration about 7 years ago and still looks great. It was used in a few parades over the past few years and sat in a barn the rest of the time. She runs great and is ready for action! The floors, frame and undercarriage were sandblasted and painted and look like new (see pictures). The transfer cases were rebuilt and also painted and look like new. All wheel wells are immaculate and look like new. The motor (original 4 cylinder Hurricane) was rebuilt and detailed with correct original colors. The engine compartment was also repainted and the original shovel is present. 24 volt system with electrical generator outlet and heavy duty cable included. The jeep was painted at the time of restoration and still looks great (it does have its share of paint chips and dings and some paint wear areas on the floor). Brass data plate was redone and looks like art! The interior was also repainted and is still in very good shape with some slight paint wear in floor feet areas. Seats are in very good shape with some slight wear. Canvas top is also in good shape and free of rips. This Jeep has the keyless floor foot start button. She fires up right away. Has correct choke and throttle cables. All gauges and gauge lights work! Horn works! Lights work! Wipers work! Complete with correct military tires and wheels! I also have a repair manual that comes with the Jeep. Also has the tow cable connector box in rear. This jeep gets attention everywhere and is a blast to drive! Here is your chance to own a piece of history at an affordable price!”
