1953 M-38A1 Lake, MI $4000

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

Motor has seized.

“I’m selling my 1953 Willy’s jeep, body and drive train are on outstanding condition. The only problem with the Willy’s is that it needs a motor rebuild. Comes with two motors, two trans, two tranfercases. I payed 6,000 for the jeep, taking 2,000 off for the seized motor. Great deal! Please only respond if truly interested. I bought the xtra motor to fix this one. The trans and transfercase are exra. The reason for the engine problems was the oil pick up was clogged and I seized a rod to crank. I do not want to get rid of the beautiful pice of American history but my family come first. Please call me at 9896154327.”

1953 M-38A1 Fernandina Beach, FL **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Was $7000. **SOLD**

Looks like a solid M-38A1.

“This is an awesome Jeep. Purchased in 2005 from a gentleman in Massachusetts. This Jeep has always been garage kept. It has a title and was appraised for $8,500 in 2005. There are 45,000 miles on the engine and very little rust on the body. This vehicle runs well and the 4 wheel drive, works perfectly. The original 24 volt system remains and has a floor board start (no key). Very few modifications have been made to this Jeep and it shows well as is or can be brought up to show quality with little work. The gentleman I purchased from did add an overdrive gear which allows the Jeep to reach higher speeds. There are some minor “dings” in the body, but overall is in very good condition. Lights and electrical system are fully functional; turn signals added for street driving. This Jeep also has a heater!”

1953 M-38A1 Prosper, TX $2000

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

This runs and drives.

“M38A1 Willys Jeep. Runs and drives good but needs some work on the brakes. Would make a great deer lease vehicle. Rust is minimal and would be a good restore vehicle if you decided to go that route. I need it gone due to other projects.

Would be interested in trading for a Miller Mig or Tig welder.”

1957 Photo of M-38A1 in Antarctica on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, M-38A1, Old Images

Doug forwarded this eBay photo that references Operation Deepfreeze. Given the number “14” is written on the side of the jeep it would suggest there were other jeeps there, too. Here’s a link to a few images on G503 from Life Magazine.

“Please note: Unless you are the winning bidder, I will not provide scans of the slides and negatives I sell. Also, I will not give out another member’s contact information or contact another member on your behalf.
Original 35mm film slide.
Subject: U.S. Navy Operation “Deep Freeze” Special Project Jeep #14 and a sign that says, “Smokey Says Use Your Ashtrays … Keep Antarctica Green”, at McMurdo Station.
Date: 1957
