wishing to trade driving m38a1 for a mb or gpw project

Post by 1953m381 » Fri Apr 17, 2020 8:21 am

Hello all, looking to possibly trade a running and driving, 90% parade ready m38a1 to a gpw or mb project. I have other vehicles that may be of interest as well. Call email or text 423 480 0024 for pictures. Located in Eastern Tennessee. Thank You

The conversion rate is; ten M38A1s equals one MB or GPW.

Yeah I know the gpw and MB is worth more but not quite sure on the 10 to 1 ratio.

10 to 1 might be a little rich, but there is definitely a ratio.

After Covid moves on Im putting up a 4 way numbers matching GPW project with all the hard part done (depending on what one likes to work on). It will be listed at 15K...

Of course there's a ratio, that's why I offered to trade a running driving jeep for a ww2 project not a show ready car.

It was meant to elicit humor, thought, discussion, and to give you a free bump to the top.

Condition, condition, condition....of each jeep will be a good part of that "ratio". If you had an M38A1 in a restored sometime ago condition that was mechanically sound, I think it would be worth more than a G503 with a rusted-out tub, no seats, CJ engine that does not run, no windshield, bald tires on CJ rims....well, you get the idea...

Avoid visions of sugarplums, compare the cost of new parts, cosmetic and mechanical for the two JEEPs.

Thank you all for your input as I said I have a m38a1 in very nice parade ready shape. Wasn't looking to trade for a parade ready mb or gpw. Thanks
