Year? M-38A1 Buda, TX $3735 Unique History

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

The seller of this M-38A1 has a unique and special view of jeep history, hence the reason I have shared this ad. (As a precursor, there were a few CDN M-38s and M-38A1s built by Ford in Canada, but not that many — it is doubtful, but not impossible, that this was one.)

“This is an awesome vehicle that looks super cool and goes ANYWHERE! It is the true granddaddy of them all! M38A1 It is made by Ford Motor company as Willis could not keep up production during the war and Henry Ford cut a deal with our government to supply Jeeps to our troops utilizing the the Willis body design but with a more powerful engine, built in Canada (to not infringe on Willis patent…). The Willis had 60 hp while the Ford Jeep had a 75 hp Hurricane engine. The extra fifteen hp made a very big difference! This particular unit has over 2K custom welding (front bumper, roll bar, rear bumper and tail gate, reinforced floor boarding). It comes equipped with six ply Military tires (valued at $400 each= $1600). There are also custom accessories for the avid outdoorsman (remote controlled electric hoist rated at two thousand pounds, a remote controlled animal feeder, custom front carrier box and a custom tow bar). The accessories are a combined $1000 value. There are two adult jump seats in the cargo area to transport a combined four large adults. There is a gun rack and custom convertible top. Everything on this machine works! Extra large radiator. Military Jeep is rated three quarter ton (1500 lbs.) Have receipts for everything done over the last thirty years! Comes with extra parts and manuals. This thing not only looks good but “runs like a top”!!! These Jeeps were designated an International Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.”

1953 M-38A1 Various Places **SCAM**

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: .

There are multiple ads across the country for a 1953 M-38A1 for only $3000. This too-good-to-be-true offer is made using a gmail address that is also selling other vehicles across the country. It looks like a scammer to me.

Here’s the ad:

“1952 Willy’s Jeep Forest fire truck;
This is a unique fire truck in that it is a Willy’s Jeep AND easily fits in your garage! Former military unit (ex Marines, I believe). Runs and drives great- needs some TLC for the true Willy’s Jeep detail. It appears to be “shop built” either by military or a fire dept. as a fire pumper, but used a “Barton” front mount 500 gpm conversion kit of the day. The side compartments are ex-ammo boxes!
