(05/20/2015) There seems to be some value. Neither runs at the moment.

“Selling two 1952 M38A1’s. Project started on the red one frame is original with no repairs just sandblasted and coated in POR15. Body is in fantastic shape. The green one I originally bought for parts and the MD engine as the tub is shot. All parts are military for both jeeps aside from the CJ-5 F-head and an aftermarket roll bar. Both engines ran when I bought the jeeps and were fogged before storage. Also included are some transmission rebuild parts and several gallons of sealed paint and primer. Maxed out the pictures but there are more parts included. Looking to get $4500 or best reasonable offer cash only, any questions I will do my best to answer.”

Looks solid.

“Not representing M38A1 as “restored” but a great brought back to life Parade unit you can have fun in without worrying about scratching it.

Fully rebuilt engine by Ball Engines – less than 500 miles on the jeep since rebuilt as a whole unit.
5 almost brand new GOODYEAR MT/R Kevlar tires. Might not be era correct but these babies are sweet.
Almost all new canvas with its padding for all the seats – YES it has the passenger and rear seats.
Converted was the unhooking of the voltage regulator which is still mounted but a CAT 24 volt alternator installed – system is still 24 volt. 24 volt battery has a disconnect switch.
*needs wiper arms with blades – dash cluster wiring harness – air filter clamp and whatever else you prefer to do to it to make it yours. But we drive it when we can and have fun.

BOS sale only and sale is CASH ONLY – no money orders – no certified checks so do not offer.
Do not contact with ANY solicitations and non serious questions about the jeep.
Buyer responsible for driveaway or transportation after sale.”
