Stretched M-38A1 at Walmart

• CATEGORIES: Features, M-38A1 • TAGS: , , .

Seth found this photo of a stretched M-38A1 with extra seats parked at a Walmart. Looks like there’s a small sign attached to the beer case that indicates this may be in Virginia near the National Museum of the Marines

1952 M-38A1 Knoxville, TN $12,500

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $12,500

“1952 Willys M38a1 ‘Army Jeep’
Full frame off restoration. Everything was rebuilt or replaced with NOS or new parts. Too much to list.
Jeep is fully functioning 24 volt waterproof electrical, great running 134 Hurricane engine, excellent driving and show quality paint.

I never thought I would sell. The only item that is unfinished is the vacuum system for the wipers. Only needs a hose. I was never going to drive in the rain.

Price is starting at $12,500 which is less than I have in it or the parts would be worth separate. Text or call for a viewing.

Little list of work done:
The body was removed and any rust was cutout and welded in new metal or replaced whole pieces, such as both fount fenders and the gas tank sump. Frame was striped bare and coated with POR-15 rust inhibitor. Engine was also painted with POR engine enamel.

All wiring is new, bought from Vintage wiring of ME. It’s all waterproof with mil-style connectors. The generator and distributor are NOS 24 volt, with new coil and points. Brand new fuel tank and fuel and vacuum lines. New water pump, fuel pump, oil pump, clutch, radiator, hoses, belts and ect. All new brake components: master, caliper, shoes, drums, and lines. New or NOS lights, all functioning. All new bearings/seals in burfield hubs and Warn lock out hubs. New axle on right front. NOS vacuum wiper motors. Brand new top and seat covers. Brand new tires. Gauges are new or NOS. New windshield and gasket. I believe the decals correlate to my fathers unit in Vietnam, although he was in a helicopter and not a M38a1.”
