“1952 Willy’s M-38 for sale. It has a 3 speed with a high-low transfer case and a flathead 4 engine. I’ve had it for about 3 years and haven’t driven it much. I actually used it to plow snow a few times. It’s in rough shape, but wouldn’t take too much to make it nice. Even when not running for over a year, it fires up right away. The engine needs some tuning, but I think it’d run well with some TLC.”
