This might be a good find.  This runs with the help of some starting fluid.  It is still 24 volt.  It probably doesn’t have a title.

“This a MB 24 volt system stock drive train with stock milatary wheels and lights…..this jeep ran and will still run if you jump it and a shot of starter fulid….I am not willing to get involed in starting it or messing around with it for the sake of selling it at this price….you need to be willing to look at it and take it away either for a project or parts….will trade for guns of the same value….just tell me what kind of guns rifle,shotgun or pistol it will just have the same value…..1 gun and cash whatever it is sold as is to the first person that comes to Cedar City with a trailer and picks it up.”

1954? M-38 Kanosh, Ut $3500

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

Thanks to a reader named Brett for pointing out this jeep.  The front part of the jeep appears to be a M-38, though the year is off.  On the other hand, the rear body on this jeep looks suspiciously CJ-5ish.  I’d like to see some close up pics to see how the front and rear of the body has been merged.  Perhaps it is a M-38 and 1954 M-38A1?

“1954 Jeep Military. !2 volt alt, 4 cyl flat head engine, front and rear seats,body in good condition. Brake wheel cylinders have been replaced. Body is in good condition with little or no rust. Selling Jeep and buying 4 wheeler. Come and see it at 210 North Main Street, Kanosh, Utah 84637.”

Lots of pics of this in progress jeep.  Plenty of good work has been done and much work left.

“1955 Jeep M38A1

Too many projects not enough garage time! 1955 M38A1 Military Jeep. It was a running and driving Jeep a few years ago and I tore it down to restore the frame, motor, body and wiring. The frame was sand blasted and re painted in gloss OD. All the frame bushings, spring bushings and shackles were replaced and new brake lines were installed front and rear. The motor ran good and did not smoke so all I did was strip, paint and re-gasket it. This Jeep has been a military Jeep it’s whole life so there is no extra crap added to it. All the 24 volt stuff is still on it. I do have a new OE (1955) wiring harness for it but it is not installed yet. The body was also blasted and the main tub was put in black sealer primer the rest of the parts are still bare metal. It does need some light body work on the rear of the tub where the gas can and spare tire mounts, it’s not bad just a little wavy. The floor was replaced under the drivers seat because of some rust but other than that the body was rust free. It has brand new NDT military tires all the way around. The original fuel pump was also rebuilt a few months ago. All the small parts like blackout lights, gages, handles, tire mounts not in the pictures is stored in rubbermaid tubs. This Jeep has under 20k original miles. It is an easy winter project with a lot of the hard work already done. $3950 OBO 509-953-1868 located by Northtown Mall area.”

1953 M-38a1 Joplin, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200.

“I am selling my 1953 M38-A1 Willys Jeep. It has a Buick Grand National V-6 with an Elderbrock intake and runs very good. I have the original tires and wheels that came with it and the original seats. The seats need reupohlstered and the engine could use a set of adjustable pushrods. The pushrods in it right now are a little noisy, but nothing major. I do not have a title ,but I was told that I can get one if I want. The four wheel drive works but it does need a gear replaced in the front axle. I have a spare front axle with power assist that goes with the Jeep. This will solve that problem. I drive it around my house and sometimes take it down the road. This would make a great play toy for a weekend warrior. There is no rust at all anywhere on the body.”l

Now I know what you are thinking;  Why install a non-military fording kit?  That’s what you were focused on, right?

“1952 Willys M38A1 90% restored to as delivered to the Marine Corps in 1952. This vehicle was converted to 12 volts with new non military wiring. It runs well and transmission as well as transfer case work well. There are some minor leaks in the seals of the rear diff and transfer case. The battery box was removed by previous owner to install heater. heater has been removed. Many new parts including lights, horn switch, dash, glove box cover, gauges, steering wheel and more. This M38A1 runs very well and has made the parade / car show circuit in upstate New york this summer with no problems. The fording kit is not military, but looks real cool. The starter and generator are not waterproof so don’t expect to ford any streams. Markings are correct for the 1950s era. There are minor blemishes on the tub, but no rust holes. The frame is solid and in excellent shape. It runs and stops. The motor is clean and runs well. Sorry guys, Danielle does not come with the Jeep.”
