1952 CJ-3A Boise, ID $16,200

• CATEGORIES: News • TAGS: , , , , .

This one was purchased out of Clovis. You can see the ad from 2013 here.

“1952 Willy’s Jeep 4X4. Ground up restoration. V6 Buick engine. Blue wIth ghost flames on hood. Beautiful jeep. Testing the waters. Looks better without top. Don’t drive it much so if the price is right it’s yours. If interested, do your homework. I doubt you will even find one in this Good of shape. I will not ship the jeep. I will only deal in person at my local Boise bank. I will only accept cash after the bank has checked it out. Opportunities for this quality of jeep don’t happen often”

1952 M-38 Comstock Park, MI BAT Auction


Chad spotted this customized M-38 on a Bring-A-Trailer Auction.

“This 1952 Willys M38 was purchased as a military-spec example by the seller in 1996 and subsequently underwent extensive refurbishment to its exterior sheet metal, tub, frame, brakes, steering, exhaust, and 24-volt electrical system. Power is sent to all four wheels from an L-head 134ci four-cylinder through a 3-speed transmission and 2-speed transfer case, all three of which were rebuilt during the 1990s work. Modifications include a new old-stock military deep-water fording kit as well as modern gauges, lighting, and wheels. This M38 is offered with documentation of the refurbishment, two covers, and a clean Michigan title.”

UPDATE: Price dropped to $5800.

(02/10/2018) This one has an unusual color scheme. Must have been used for some type of advertising. Sell incorrectly states that this is the “civilian version of the M38 U.S. Army Jeep”?

The F-134 engine has had the valves recently adjusted. The roll cage and front seat belts are there for safety. If you want a weekend cruiser, this is your vehicle.
