M38 Jeep (parts or restore) for sale $1600 Massachusetts

Post by M OMalley » Sat Aug 26, 2017 3:24 pm

This jeep is mostly original, unfortunately it sat outside for quite a few years...Most of the rust is from the topside where wet pine needles accumulated on the left front fender, steps , and the front floor.. .. I consider the body tub beyond repair, but I've seen people restore worse..It does have a few good sections...The original hood is in exceptionally nice condition..)... The windshield frame is very good, with wiper motors, door channels, etc, (glass is cracked.)...The grill is straight with all attaching parts ( lights, headlight guards etc.).. The right front fender is very good... The left fender has a good brace, but rust though on the top flat area ( repairable)... The dash is is fairly complete with all original gauges (26,000 miles ), glove box door etc. .. The dash ID tags are missing and there isn't a title...The engine compartment is original with a nice radiator , original carb, fuel pump, fording valves & lines, horn, generator , voltage reg, distributor, air cleaner , battery box... It appears to have a replacement 12 volt stater running off one battery and using a solenoid switch, the spark plug wires & plugs are civilian.....The engine serial number is MC 84131.. The engine has not been turned over in 20 years. I gave a tug on the fan , the water pump is free, but the belts wouldn't turn the engine... The engine may be rebuild-able , and maybe not...The jeep has two original front seats, and an original gas tank.. Looking through the filler cap , the tank looks clean... However the floor under the tank is rusty or gone, so I assume the tank may need some attention..As it sits now there is only one original military tire and rim on it, the other 3 are wide civilian rims & tires..The two original rear bumperettes are in very good condition . This jeep would be excellent for parts ( original rebuild-able cores) , use as a reference & parts jeep when assembling another jeep, or a very ambitious restoration ... I have priced this fairly based on some of the easy to sell parts that I have mentioned ...The jeep is located in Westfield Mass. I ask that the buyer come and inspect it in person before making a deal ... I don't consider it worth the additional cost of transporting it a long distance. I can assist with loading a truck or trailer, or could work out local delivery with my trailer...( I'm having trouble loading pictures, please check back later ).. Mark O

This is about what I usually start with on my restorations. None of that rust free, complete and straight stuff that is only found 2000 miles away from me. Those are no challenge.
