M-38 Cab Enclosure Hardtop Delanson, NY $350


May be worth a look.


“This is a complete arctic cover for the Willys M38 Jeep. Other than dirty and a bit dusty, it is all there. The top has no dents or dings, doors are complete as are side panels and rear panel. New glass needed for one of the rear panels. Windshield glass frame is corroded. Here is a chance to get the complete package. These are getting harder to come by, especially when fully complete and original.”

1958 CJ-6 Lyons, CO $6950


UPDATE: Price dropped to $6950.

This CJ-6 has the King Seeley 0-8 speedo with the broken pointer (not uncommon to see them broken). I’m surprised to see that speedo in a model as late as 1958, so it wouldn’t surprise me if this was actually an early 1957 model sold as a 1958.


“1958 Willys CJ6 Jeep For Sale.
4WD, original 4 Cylinder engine, full metal hardtop.
Just serviced with new battery, oil and fuel filters, distributor cap, rotor, points, plugs, condenser, plug wires, oil change, fuel and coolant flushes, etc..
Very little rust for a 61 year old jeep!
Ready to go. The perfect little “mountain goat” – ranch, cabin or hunting truck!”

Will need some work according to the seller.


koenig-hardtop-cj5-kent-wa1 koenig-hardtop-cj5-kent-wa2

“This is an all-steel vintage Koenig hard top and doors for an early CJ5. I bought this hard top set a couple of years ago (?) with the grandest and noblest of intentions of restoring and modifying it to fit my 1974 CJ5. Spoiler Alert: I haven’t touched it and I’m not going to. I don’t know what year exactly, but the doors won’t fit my ’74 without modifying the hinges, as they won’t align. (See last photo) Most of the glass is there, but it needs a full restoration. These are getting harder and harder to find that haven’t completely rotted away or lost all of it’s glass.”

1945 MB Wichita, KS $3500


Seller needs this gone soon. It’s a mash of parts.


1945-mb-wichita-kans1 1945-mb-wichita-kans2 1945-mb-wichita-kans3

“1945 WWII acm type II tub with a 1946/7 CJ motor and T-90 transmission, original MB tag still present on frame. Machine gun pedestal mount present, definitely a WWII frame/tub.

Original data plates are missing. Previous owner added a tailgate, roll bar and a CJ-5 hard top. Used a winch in the front to haul deer through the back without busting a sweat.

Tool boxes flat and nice, not rusted out. Original floors present but have a sheet nicely laid over. It was done so well you can’t tell.

Original air cleaner, I believe carburetor and other parts.

If you’re looking for a gauranteed runner for a start to a project or a reenactor grade Jeep this won’t take much. Has Bondo on left side, some on hood and also on the back. For most it’s clean metal underneath. Tool channel patched with riveted stainless steel, that and tailgate are the worst spots.

Runs and drives great! Starts with the turn of a key. Open to offers. I can also deliver to surrounding states or cities within Kansas at cost.

Has missouri title but does not match, sold on Kansas bill of sale, will include title.

Will upload video to YouTube of it running and a walk around soon. Also available on ebay, need it gone soon.”

Metamet: British Jeep Rebuilders

UPDATE: This post has been updated to reflect some more information and images. It was originally posted in March of 2013.


Metamet was a British company that refurbished WWII jeeps and civilian jeeps, creating a slew of different models. According to the G503 Forum, “Metamet was run by an expat Pole, and latterly his son. It was a wonderful Aladdin’s caves of wartime Jeeps and Jeep bits and pieces located in a series of old mews stables in Daleham Mews. These places were commonly garage workshops in post-horse London, but nowdays are worth untold fortunes as residences.”

At one point in the early 1950s there were twelve different models of jeeps offered by Metamet, only one of which was the standard production model jeep. The rest were all customizations of one type or another. Seven models were 80″ wheel base, while the other five had 100″ wheel bases.  The models include, the Standard, De-luxe, Farmer, Five-in-one, Saloon, Shooting Brake, 10 CWT Truck, Metaplan, Station Wagon, 15 CWT Van, 20 CWT Lorry, and a 2 Ton Loadmaster.


Metamet’s early 1950s models. There were seven 80″ wheel base jeeps and five 100″ wheel base jeeps.


Here’s an example of Metamet’s advertising.

A 1952 Ad posted to Flicker by Johnathan confirms there were twelve models also:


Finally, here’s a 12 page brochure that provides examples of different models that used to be linked to on the jeep farm website:
