1954 jeep willys

condition: good
fuel: gas
title status: clean
transmission: manual

1954 Willys m38a1 U.S. army jeep is original 24 volt, runs perfectly, shifts perfectly including 4 wheel drive. as far as I can tell the vehicle is not cut, welded on, or in any other way been severely damaged or altered. The jeep is certainly not perfect or show quality / it shows dents and dings / layers of green farm paint. The floor boards in the front are solid but look as though they have seen minor repairs in the past / the jeep shows little to no rust. The wheels and tires are civilian while the spare is a military ndt with original wheel. The dash data plate shows a 1954 date / the data plate behind the passenger seat is missing. As it stands this is a solid driver vehicle in great condition that is reliable and mechanically totally sound. I have always kept it garaged and have used it primarily for Sunday driving or riding around the neighborhood.

Mechanically the jeep was in good shape when I purchased it and over the past few years I have made some improvements and completed routine maintenance.

- Summer 2016 - full engine rebuild and installation with correct "MD" stamped military f-134 "hurricane" engine ( done by 1/4 ton military in chickamauga, ga)
- Summer 2016 - new brakes, brake lines, all fluids changed including mechanical housings (done by 1/4 ton military )
- Fuel pump rebuild by kaiser-willys
- Original Carter carb rebuild by kaiser-willys
- Air intake cross-over tube replaced with correct unit
- Instrument cluster removed and replaced non-working gauges
- Damaged seat covers replaced
- Windshield and rubber replaced
- 24 volt waterproof spark plug wires / and new plugs
- A variety of other tasks to numerous to count

Not shown in the pictures but items included :
- spare f134 "Hurricane" engine block ( removed summer 2016 when rebuilt md f134 unit installed)
- top bow for canvas top ( no canvas top )
- cold weather heater - I removed so I could work on the engine - the heating unit works really well and could be reinstalled easily (4 bolts / one wire)
- enough nos oil filters to last years
- many spare pieces of hardware
- full set of TM maintenance manuals
- high lift jack shown in pictures is not included
- jerry can is included ( I have red or green )

The reason I am considering selling is that I do not use it enough and the jeep deserves more time on the road and more attention.
This vehicle is registered / licensed in the state of Alabama - vehicle will be sold per bill of sale - Alabama does not require title for vintage vehicles.
The price is $5000
This vehicle is sold as is, where is. No trades. I do not need help selling this vehicle. No low-ballers, tire-kickers or joy-riders. Please do not contact me unless you are serious about purchasing this vehicle.
