1951 M-38 San Antonio, TX **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $8900.

This looks good.

“Restored 1951 M38 Willy’s Army Jeep – Ser. No. 24,675 MFG 9-51The M38 only had a two year production run, during which time only 62,329 were built (compared with the nearly 650 thousand MBs and GPWs build during WWII). Has several unique characteristics compared to the WWII jeep. First with 24 volt electrical system, first one piece windshield, first to have 7×16 tires instead of 6×16, last and best of flat fendered jeeps, last of the flat head 4 cylinder engines, first jeep with true fording capabilties(sealed sparkplugs and distributer) when equipped with a snorkel and tail pipe extension and of course the removable tailgate.
Though restored, this has been changed to a 12 volt system and does not have the sealed(water proof) plugs. So here is an M38 that not only looks good, but is road ready.”

1959 FC-170 Channahon, Il **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE: **SOLD* Was $500.

The engine is stuck.

“1959 Willys Jeep Forward Control FC-170.
The truck has the original flathead 226 “Super Hurricane” straight 6 engine but it is stuck. I had planned to pull the head and work the pistons free but I have no time for it now.. Has the 3 speed T-90 transmission. Being a Jeep it is of course four wheel drive.

These are bit of a rare bird as only ~35000 of them were ever made. This one has a fair bit of rust typical of living in the rust belt.
It used to be a farm truck up in Michigan. There’s no bed on it. It was originally a stake bed I believe.

The drivers side window has a crack through it. All the other windows are fine but the front windshield is a bit fogged along the bottom.”

Year? DJ-3A? Paradise, CA **SOLD**


UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1100.

This looks like a DJ-3A that has the solid back.

“Ok so here they are together for those of you who looked at my ad for the one before. I now have both in my yard. The complete vehicle has rust on floor and sides. Dont know what model it is. The motor is an F head.that had a new head put on it by the previous owner. It will start for you with some effort but smokes badly. I bought it that way from a friend of mine, got it started and drove it around my yard in 4wheel high and low. Brakes had been repaired but probably need fluid as the pedal goes to the floor. The extra tub also has rust but is in much better shape and easier to repair. The floor is rusted out on both sides to some extent and would need to be cut and new metal welded in. That tub has a tailgate as seen in the photos and is probably a CJ2a or 3a. Chassis only has the axles. No trans. Is a roller. The front hood, fneders and windshield plus grill come with it and can be seen on the flickr site at this link along with other more detailed photos of the jeeps”
