1950 M-38 & M-38A1 Nebraska $1000

• CATEGORIES: M-38, M-38A1 • TAGS: .

The flattie looks to be a M-38, so the year should be 1950 or later.  The other I’m guessing to be a M-38a1.  It’s a bizarre parking job.

“The red jeep ran when i got it 5yrs ago. The drive train worked good too. It has a title. The yellow jeep has the motor taken out of it and is in the back of it same with the front clip. The drive train is good on it though. It dosent have a title. I was gana take the two and make on nice one. And take the rest of the other one and make a trailer for it. I will bring them to denver for you for an extra 300. If you have any questions feel free to ask @ mrdobrinski@gmail.com”

1959 M-38a1 La Center, Wa $500

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

1959_m38a1_lacenterMaybe it has an overdrive?  I don’t see a great deal of value otherwise.

2 M-38a1s Lompoc, Ca $1500

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

This appears to be a good price for those interested in early M-38a1s.

Jenn asked me to post these.  She wrote, “We are asking $1500.00 for both. I would rather not part them out.  If bought together they would have a complete restored M38A1.

The green one has the original engine and converted to 12 volt. 4 inch lift, and locking front tires. Tires in good shape and have 1 brand new spare.

The sanded one is the better body. All rust spots have been patched and welded up. Floor has been rhino lined. Original tires and have 6 spares with tubes. This one has the original seats.  We are located in Lompoc California.  Email would be gtimesxu@yahoo.com or jennburmester@rocketmail.com

1953 M-38A1 Rathdrum, Id $1500

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

1953_m38a1_rathdrumDan pointed out this ad to me.  I have always liked these ‘flattie’ type fenders for the CJ-5.  I’ve never know if they were only an aftermarket product or came stock on some jeeps?  Nice aluminum slot rims, too.

“my dad has a 1953 cj 5 jeep it has primer on and been lifted needs a motor set up for 350 chev or 327 has heavy duty bumper nice alum. wheels, take and finish your way for great rock crawler.. his # is 208-687-8907 or cell 208-691-8891 best to talk to him on phone , he knows more about then I do ask for Bob. ”

1953 M-38A1 Deerfield, NH $1500

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

1953_m38a1_deerfieldThis appears to be a very good price on a running M-38a1.  The rust doesn’t appear bad in the pics.  I’d get some new seats covers (see Jim for some good prices) and you’d be set.

“This is a real M-38 army jeep, it purs like a kitten, the brakes and everthing work good, it has the army numbers still on it, just needs to be restored, or can be registered and driven every day, email or call 603-231-9169.”

1954 M-38A1 Indiana Jones Volo, IL **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

1954_m38a1_voloUPDATE: Was $20,000.**SOLD**  According to the IMCDb.org, the only M-38A1 used during the movie can be seen here and was only involved in a minor clip.  So, I would suggest reviewing the movie as a first step ….

This is an interesting jeep.  One of the more unusual features, according to the sales blurb,  is that it’s rigged to run on propane to reduce exhaust fumes, because it was run on a closed set for much of the filming.  I have to wonder if it’s not a trademark violation for the seller to be using the Indian Jones label as shown …

THIS IS THE ACTUAL 1954 WILLYS M38 THAT WAS USED IN THE MOST RECENT “INDIANA JONES” MOVIE.  ANY CAR OR PROP USED IN A SPIELBERG MOVIE ARE NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE TO GET BECAUSE SPIELBERG WANTS THEM TO BE DESTROYED SO NO ONE CAN PROFIT OFF OF THEM. EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE ONE OF THESE RARE PROPS SLIPS THROUGH THE CRACKS….”

1953 M-38A1 Salton Sea, Ca $1800

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

1953_m38a1_saltonseaYeah, it’s been chopped a bit in the rear end, but it looks like there’s some reasonable parts there (nice full cage, tires and rims).  I’m sure it would be a fun little runabout vehicle.

“First $1800 in cash takes it! Turn key and go 4 wheeling today! Updates on this vehicle are: Tilt wheel and power steering. 2″ suspension lift. 4 new large shocks- Over $1,000 invested in wheels, tires, and brakes. This jeep is low geared for desert fun. It’s really not for the road because of the low gears. It has a factory air compressor from the military and an air hose line to the bumper for filling up tires if you have to let the air out. New muffler and tail pipe. High back bucket seats with 4 point harnesses. Every thing works, lights, brakes, and spot lights. Rebuilt carb and 4cyl. motor with 4 spd trans.

1953 CJ-5 Spokane, Wa $1200 or trade

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

1953_cj5_spokaneIf this truly is a 1953, then I suspect this is a M-38a1, as I don’t *think* CJ-5s were manufactured prior to 1955.  I like it because it sports what look like nice, old school slot aluminum rims which are hard to find.   The body parts appear in good condition too.  There might be some other good points also.

“I have a 1953 cj 5 project and need to make more room for race car stuff…lol….. I want 1200 cash or trade for the following (see craigslist ad) ….  Arin.  509 863 8953… Best offer by sunday and it goes!!!!”

1952 M-38a1 Toledo, Wa No Price

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

1952 was the first year for the M-38a1.  I can’t remember seeing a top quite like this on an M-38a1.  If you can scrape all the paint off, this may be very restorable.

“LOOKING FOR CJI HAVE A 1952 M38A1 MILITARY JEEP THIS JEEP HAS A 24 VOLT SYSTEM HARD TOPVERY VERY VERY LITTLE RUST TOPS BEEN ON IT WHOLE LIFE LOOKING FOR MAYBE A NEWER CJ7 OR SCRAMBLER WRANGLER TO TRADE IT RUNS AND DRIVEBUT THE ONLY THING IT NEED IS A NEW BRAKE CYLINDER..EMAIL ME IF INTERESTED HAS ALL ORIGINAL SEATS PLUS BACK FOLD DOWN SEAT ORIGINAL.MILITARY WINCH ON FRONT..THANKSF OR LOOKING ALSOIM NOT TRADING FOR JUNK THIS JEEP IS WORTH $$$ NEEDS PAINTED”

1955 M-38a1 Bonney Lake, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1800

Not a bad price for a non-rusty, full cage, buick v6, running jeep.  Might even get it for less. Given the rope that ties the gear shift to the dashboard, I’d say project number one would be fixing the tranny from popping out of gear getting a nicer piece of rope to hold the 2wd in place 🙂

“1955 Willys CJ5 Jeep, 225 Buick V6 3 speed, 5.38 gears. Welded rear end, BesTop soft top, YJ buckets and rear seat. Swampers with 50% tread. No rust, very solid tub. Full cage”

1954 CJ-3B Westfall, Or eBay

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3B, M-38A1

UPDATE:  This CJ-3B is back on ebay (last time was mid may).  Starting bid is now $2200.

The beginning bid price is $2500, which is a bit high for a non running jeep. The rims and tires look new and in good shape.  Westfall Oregon is in the middle of eastern Oregon, a ways off either highway 20 or 26.

"For sale is a 1954 Willys CJ-3B, "High Hood". This is the jeep Willys replaced the CJ-3A with, by adding the new overhead engine. Being a taller engine, it needed more room, so, Willys raised the hood. I bought this Willys from a man who was driving it back and forth to work. He had started to restore the jeep, (pulled the radiator, front clip, started some body work…) then he ran out of time, and sold it to me. It is not running at this time….."
