1952 Willys M38A1 Additional Info:

For sale is a 1952 Willys M38A1, the first year produced. It has a clean title. The story goes a farmer bought this Jeep to use on his blueberry farm. After bringing it home I cleaned the entire Jeep out, topped off the transmission, and got intimidated with the electrics. I'm not sure if this is 24V like original or converted 12V, but the wiring needs all gone through. The gas tank should be cleaned out, and I would guess a new fuel pump.
This Jeep is perfect for an off-road or farm toy. The transmission is free and the shifter moves nicely, I could push the Jeep around with ease. When I topped off the tranny oil, the gears looked pretty clean. Engine is free as well. I crawled all under the frame and it's solid. There's a plow mechanism that's still hooked up on the front. The tires have dry rot but have been holding air pretty well, and have plenty of tread left. These are the larger 7x16 tires.
From a historical standpoint, this is also a great basis for a restoration project.The front-half body is in great shape with little rust, and the tub is rough. It could be repaired or replaced, but please note the tub is not in good condition.The entire drivetrain is original military with the correct engine and transmission. You can even see the USMC hood numbers peering through the hood paint. It looks like this Jeep at one time during service had a snorkel, which is what the hole in the hood was for. This is a true farm find Jeep and will need work to get running, but the Jeep is original and serves as a greatcandidatefor a project. This Jeep is also for sale locally and this listing could end before the auction is over.
