(01/16/2015) The engine compartment looks good.
“Rare 1953 M38A1. This is a military Willys. Hurricane with three speed. Runs well. has been garaged since I have owned it. I bought it in 2004 and have put less than 100 miles on it. I have replaced many parts. It’s been converted to 12 volts. Has the full top in good condition. Would benefit from another frame off. Parts are easy to find and easy to work on. If you are not familiar with this generation of “Jeep” this is a military vehicle from the Korean War Era. This is certainly a very clean and complete example. Clean title in hand. Won’t last. Please contact for more info.”
“Tub off restoration, engine and trans rebuilt. All new brakes including master cyl. and lines. New gas tank, rebuilt carb. New top and seats. Five new ND tires with new tubes installed. Original 24volt system,all lights work. I have many pictures of rebuild. NO trades wanted! Jeep runs and drives fine. Title in my name.”
Can’t tell a lot, but is sure looks promising.
“Mint condition, 1953 Willys Jeep with all of the Army decals. You do not find an army jeep in this condition often. This jeep looks like it just came off the show room floor prior to going to a Mash movie. All stock except for the front wheel hubs. I drove it in the Daffodil parade and taken it to car shows. It is a head turner.”
UPDATE: Still Available
(06/17/2014) “I have a 1954 M38A1 Military Jeep for sale. It has 20,000 original miles on it. I have gone through everything on the Jeep. I have owned it since 1986 but I don’t get to use it much anymore so I decided to sell it instead of letting it sit, when someone else could be driving it and having a good time. Hot August Nights is just around the corner.
No pics provided.
“Picked it up a few years ago, got it running, then tore into it to restore it… Now between school and work, I just don’t have time for such a big project.
It’s currently torn apart, but is on wheels/tires.
It will be available to look at this Saturday from 10am to 6pm.
I will post pictures tonight as well.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** No Price was listed. Now listed here.
Maybe there’s some value here??
“For sale by owner: 1954 Willys M38-A1 Jeep. All original. Does not run, but has all the original parts. It was running when it was parked in 2010 and was painted yellow over the Army green because the original owner who got it from the military sale used it while working on a road construction crew. I intended to restore it, but have never got to start because of health reasons. It is a military vehicle that has never been titled. ”
Needs work of some kind, but looks good on the outside.

“This is a 1962 Willys Jeep and trailer. The Jeep is in good condition and has a 4 cylinder engine. The Jeep has been mostly used in parades. The top and heater are included, but not installed. It runs well and the 4×4 works well. There are no side curtains. The Jeep was built for the USMC. I am asking $8000 or best offer. Please text or email with questions.”
Price is for both. Neither run. I think only one is pictured.

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.
