UPDATE: Price dropped to $2300.
(05/16/2014) Keith’s selling his M-38A1. It runs, but does need some work.
“I have had this Jeep about 3 months. Quickly realized I do not have time to work on it. The jeep sat in a garage since 2002. Before that, it was used as a hunting vehicle. As such, the body needs some work. I figure, if nothing else, a person can barely get a decent ATV these days for the same money as I am asking for a (rough)vintage jeep. As of now, I am staying FIRM at $3000. If I can’t get that much, that is ok, I will just hold on to it.
UPDATE: Was $4700. **Sold**
Looks ready to go now or could be restored.
“Perfect for hunting or running around the ranch! 1958 Willys M38A1, MD102078, running, odometer: 33052 mi, has working winch. Much stronger and more durable than the earlier jeeps. Drive Train: The M38A1 used the “Hurricane” F-Head 134 I4 engine, T-90 3 speed transmission, Dana 18 transfer case, either the Dana 25 or the Dana 27 front axle, and Dana 44 rear axle.”
This might be worth a closer look.
9500 original miles
Has complete snorkel setup
Needs seats upholstered..canvas top

“This is an excellent retired military jeep. It has been driven in parades for the last 6 years. Runs great no has no mechanical issues. The Ma Duce fires with propane and oxygen, looks and sounds real. Ready to drive home. The pictures tell it all. If you need any other information, feel free to contact me. Thanks for looking, Mike.”

“1953 M38A1 Willys military Jeep, runs great. Lots of fun to drive. Four wheel drive works, low range works. Many new parts, many spare parts. Service manual and soft top with doors included. Original data plates, very little rust – passenger side floor board only. Has the flat head Willys go devil engine, T90 transmission, Dana 18 transfer case, Dana 25 front axle and Dana 44 rear axle. Was converted to 12volt system. Clear title in hand. Had tags and registration for awhile and drove it around town, it draws lots of looks. I don’t seem to have the time to take it out much, and hate to let it just sit in the garage. Would love to see someone continue to enjoy and take care of this rare piece of American history.”
Sounds like the seller has taken good care of this.
“1954 Willy’s Military Jeep M38A1, Clean title, matching numbers.
I have a 54 M38A1 Military Jeep for sale. It has 20,000 original miles on the body and less than 2,000 on original rebuilt motor. 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.
Looks like it might be a good project. Nice cage.
“Project Jeep, body is in good condition, is not running. This is the military body. “
Is that wood on the rear floor?

(02/26/2014) This needs batteries, but still has 24volt system.
“1953 M38A1 Jeep. Great jeep for the family. We spent many an hour driving around deer leases and camp sites. I proved to my kids that this little ol jeep would climb many things the giant jacked-up trucks could not. Great way to teach your kids how to drive standard. 24V system. Underwater fording switch. Blackout lights. Placque on engine states the engine was rebuilt at Camp Wolters. Everything works. Original 4 cyl motor, transmission etc. Is not running because it needs batteries. A couple of deer lease dents but very little rust or body damage. This would be a great father- son rebuild because not much to do and easy to work on.”
This might be worth a look.

“I have a body off restoration M38a1 Jeep and trailer parade ready.This is the Marine Corps version with full fording gear.The only thing not restored on this vehicle is the engines internals runs like a top but does burn oil.This vehicle will be on display at the MVPA nationals from June 25 till June 28 at the Kentucky Expo center.This Jeep is immaculate in every detail comes with many extra parts including etra engine block, heads,rear ends ,and transmission and transfer case.Biggest reason I am selling is due to the fact that this vehicle has a top speed of 45 to 50mph and around here you would be run over at that speed on highway.I can be contacted by phone or text also at 4one9six0two4zero33.Where i was from in Ohio there were enough 55mph roads to travel to many shows and parades but down here it has to be trailered for your own safety.Bulldog on hood not included.Might consider trade of equal value on Cobra Mustang 99-2004″

(05/28/2013) This appears in good shape.
“I’ve owned this jeep for the most of 15 years but am losing my storage. It has less than 2000 miles since it has been overhauled including the motor, drive train, brakes, gauges. The only time it gets driven is for parades. It still has the 24 volt electrical system. The carburetor needs a little TLC because I usually only run it in parades so it will need a little cleaning. The lights are all hooked up but not working. I’m asking $8500.00 or best reasonable offer. Included in this price is a complete canvas top that is in excellent condition including side doors. I’m not sure if it has ever been used.
Please reply with a first name and phone number if interested, and we will call you as soon as possible. If this information is not given, you will not be contacted.”
