Dexter is listing his trailer for sale. He has lots of pictures of it.
“I bought this gem months ago. It is unrestored, unmolested and in IMMACULATE original condition. Must see to believe. When I bought it, there was a thin coat of civvy paint, which came right off with repeated wipes of a wet rag. Under that is a coat of OD, which looks like it was put on 30+ years ago, and then the original OD. The shiny parts that you see are the areas where I applied some linseed oil.
- Original, unmolested, no-rust, solid body
- Original fenders (from another 1943 Bantam)
- Original data plate
- Original lunette
- Original 3-hole swivel
- Original leg
- Original chains, hooks, and wedges
- Original drawbar
- Original handbrake (works great)
- Original drain plug
- Original BO switch (from another 1943 Bantam)
- Original reflectors (faded side reflectors came from another 1943 Bantam)
- Original 1963 California black plate with PTI sticker
- Current DMV registration to my name
- M38 rims
- Original 3-hole swivel is broken (I still have it, and it’s fixable. Currently on the trailer is a solid T3C leg, with a solid 2-hole swivel. It matches the paint of the trailer perfectly.)
- Original fenders were modified and are no longer with the trailer (As noted above, I’m including a set of original fenders from a 1943 Bantam. Layers of civvy paint just needs to be removed)
- Some remnants of the original wiring
- Additional holes added on rear crossmember due to bumperettes being installed
- One tail light bracket is not original
- No original tail lights
- One tiny hole on the front-driver-side corner”
The combo appears in good shape.

John’s got his latest completed project up for sale. John has plenty of pics posted at Flickr.
“As my project draws to a close, I offer for sale this 1943 Willys 1/4T Reconnaissance Truck (jeep)(MB213995) and Willys 1/4T Trailer, Utility, restored to motorpool standards. For those of you who have not experienced military life, this means running correctly with the correct components as required to safely operate the vehicle during the WWII era. The only exception to this is the trailer which has not yet been restored, which would not stop you from driving the jeep and trailer in most parades without doing a thing to it. I have documented the entire tub off restoration of the jeep and assure you both run well. All the jeeps major systems (drive train, engine, trans, TC, electrical, fuel and brakes) have been thoroughly disassembled, cleaned, repaired or replaced and reassembled with era-correct reproduction or original NOS parts as specified in SNLG503 (the Army parts catalog for this type of vehicle). I have only really begun to return the 1944 Willys MBT trailer to it’s former glory, I serviced the wheel bearings,brakes and cosmetically cleaned up the trailer, so the new owner can have an active hand in the final restoration. The trailer will need have a wiring harness installed and mount some NDT tires to completely match the jeep. I want potential bidders to know that the trailer lunette and rims are post WWII parts from the sucessor to this model the M100. As anyone who gets bit by the “OD Fever” will tell you it’s impossible to restore one of these old warriors to working condition, by the book, without spending a few bucks along the way. Therefore, please don’t insult me with stories of $50 jeeps in a box or I just saw one on the Internet for… I assure you I do this purely as a hobby and hope to recover costs so I can get on with the next project. A select sample of pictures of this restoration are available for viewing at : http://www.flickr.com/photos/36620154@N03/sets/72157629165949001/ Please ask any questions before considering a bid.
Flatfender Willys owner Sam Thomas scaled back his projects for a while, but plans on creating a little busier shop. After doing some research, he believes he is the only flatfender-specific rebuilder and restorer left along the eastern slope of colorado now that Mile-Hi Jeep has closed. So, he is looking to hire a couple mechanics who are experts with older jeeps. If you are interested, call Sam at 720-841-0614.
If you have been reading eWillys for a while, you might have remembered Sam was working on a simple conversion process for adding a rack and pinion steering system to an older jeep. I will detail that tomorrow.
In the meantime, I wanted to share Sam’s recent project, a trailer designed specifically for carrying a jeep. Here are the specifics.
“TILT TRAILER SPECS
1. Two 5500 lb. Axels with brakes
2. Constructed of 190 seamless square tubing throughout.
3. All wiring runs inside tubing
4. All electrical is armored core electrical cable.
5. Tall lights enclosed in 3/8 channel
6. 20,000 lb. hydraulic Ram
7. Deck is redwood stained and sealed.
8. Square jeep fenders
9. Spring assist rear ramps
10. Bed is 14 X 8 Feet.
11. Front Aluminum utility box
12. Bulldog front hitch
13. Brake Away Brake system
14. All LED lights.
15. LoJack equipped
16. Powder coated
17. Wheel Bolt Pattern 5 on 5 1/2…Jeep
18. Side Pockets all the way around.”
If you want Sam to build you one, call him to learn more. What isn’t shown in the pictures is the canvas top and the kayak side racks (added specific for the owner of this trailer).
UPDATE: Price dropped to $3250. Larger pics added. To call it “era correct” is a stretch given the front tow bar, the diamond plating on the floor, the incorrect windshield and more. However, there is some value here given the trailer, extra windshield, and tires.
(12/30/2011) The trailer needs a new wiring harness.
“Best OFFER TAKES BOTH. I am not crazy enough to think these vehicles are worth 15K but I do not think you will find a era correct pair ANYWHERE else and so here is your chance to own some classic Americana. Text best offer and lets get this going.
Here are the details, trailer and jeep will not be split up as they go together in this sale. Both have CLEAN TITLES IN HAND.
Jeep and trailer are in great condition for their age. The Jeep has an original flathead 4 cylinder motor and runs great. The trailer is complete however, needs a new wiring harness. I have been using a magnetic light tow package for ease of not having to install new lights but other than that you will not find a more nimble and strong trailer anywhere for with this jeep/trailer package. I also have an extra windshield and cowl (windshield broken) and 4 original slim lines rims and tires included.
These are 60+ year old vehicles and look it, but mechanically they are in great shape. Together, both the jeep and trailer are in great condition and would make great restoration candidates. Do not waste my time or yours in low balling.
Call or Text Adam with your inquiry. DO NOT EMAIL.
Hard to see much from the pic.
“Call Andy @ 740-601-0971 for more details and to come see it”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $700

The seller notes a serial number of 122349 and a year of 1946. However, Neither the VIN nor the year corresponds to a M-38.
“This is a M38 Willys Jeep that has been TOTALLY restored from the ground up. Just about everything on this Jeep is brand new. New tires, body, seals, canvas, shackles, seats, rubber seals, hoses, brake lines, brakes, wheel cylinders, exhaust, bumpers, etc. The Jeep is practicaly brand new as if it just came off the assembly line in Toledo. Original parts were sandblasted to insure it would look like brand new. The Jeep as you can see has been used in many parades and has been on display in Jeep dealerships in OH, WV, PA, KY, IN, MI and more. The Jeep comes with the M100 trailer that has also been fully restored. Reason I am selling it is we have three more of these in our yard to restore plus we haven’t had much of a demand for the Jeep for parades and such this past year and instead of putting it in storage for the winter I decided to sell it. You can see the complete restore process by going to www.DisplayJeeps.com/M38 The title we have says 1946 but the Jeep is an M38 other than it has been converted to 12 volts. Starts everytime and runs like a champ.”
Here’s a GPW that comes with plenty of extras and a tall price tag. Lots of pics.

This looks like a good price, though ti appears the ball in front and the tailgate have been modded.
