The Willys MC or formally the 14-Ton, 4 x 4, Utility Truck M38 was a quarter-ton four-wheel drive military light utility vehicle made by Willys between 1949 and 1952. It replaced the World War II Willys MB and Ford GPW models, and had a total production of more than 60,000 units.[1] The M38 was a military version of the then-current civilian Jeep CJ-3A.[1] The M38 differed from the CJ-3A in numerous ways, including a reinforced frame and suspension,[3] waterproof 24-volt electrical system,[1] sealed vent system for the engine, transmission, transfer case, fuel system[1] and brake system.[citation needed] Some M38 jeeps were assigned to the Korean theatre of operations, but the majority of vehicles used in that conflict were rebuilt World War II vintage. Approximately 2,300 M38 Jeeps were manufactured by Ford of Canada for Canadian Armed Forces in 1952, designated as the M38-CDN jeep. Its successor was Willys M38A1.

The M38 windshield could be folded flat for firing and the body was equipped with a pintle hook for towing and lifting shackles front and rear. The headlights were no longer recessed as on previous models, but protruded with a guard wire in front. The “pioneer” tools (axe and shovel) which were carried on the MB’s driver side were transferred to the passenger side of this vehicle

This jeep is nearly complete.

The DUKW (colloquially known as Duck) is a six-wheel-drive amphibious modification of the ​2 12-ton CCKW trucks used by the U.S. military during World War II and the Korean War.

Designed by a partnership under military auspices of Sparkman & Stephens and General Motors Corporation (GMC), the DUKW was used for the transportation of goods and troops over land and water. Excelling at approaching and crossing beaches in amphibious warfare attacks. Surviving DUKWs have since found popularity as tourist craft in marine environments.

This partially restored project looks very nice.

M-59 Armored Personnel Carrier

M 59 Armored Personnel Carrier 1

The M59 was an Americanarmored personnel carrier that entered service in the spring of 1954 replacing the M75. It had three key advantages over the M75: it was amphibious, had a lower profile, and was considerably cheaper to produce. Production ended in 1960, by which time approximately 6,300 had been built. The M84 Mortar Carrier was a derivative of the M59. The M59 was replaced in service by the M113 family of vehicles.

This is the US Army’s post-war APC that was before the common M-113

It runs and drives but it needs restoration. It has a low-mileage and good tracks.

White M 3 Halftrack (1)

The M3 half-track was an American armored personnel carrier half-track widely used by the Allies during World War II and in the Cold War. Derived from the M2 half-track car, the M3 was extensively produced, with about 15,000 standard M3s and more than 38,000 variant units manufactured.

The M3 was extensively modified with several dozen variant designs produced for different purposes. During World War II, the M3 and its variants were supplied to the U.S. Army and Marines, as well as British Commonwealth and Soviet Red Army forces, serving on all major fronts throughout the war. The M3 and its variants were produced by many manufacturers including Diamond TWhite Motor Company and Autocar and were designed for a wide variety of uses, such as a self-propelled anti-aircraft weapon or self-propelled artillery. it was used by most of the Allies during the war.

In the Cold War era, the vehicle was used by a variety of state and non-state operators in conflicts in South America, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, remaining in service until as late as the mid-1990s. In Mexico, they are still in use as of 2019.

Ford GTB Bomb Service Truck

This is a running GTB with the bomb hoist

In good condition $6600.

Dimensionally, the Ford GTB proved a larger vehicle than the world-renown JEEP or the 3/4-ton Dodge “Power Wagon” series but was of a much more compact size when compared to the war-winning “Deuce and- a-Half” transports. Nearly all GTB vehicles were affixed with an optional front-mounted winch (Braden or Gar Wood marks) with a 10,000lb rating. With excellent ground clearance, the GTB could manage water sources and depressions 25 inches deep. The open-air nature of the cockpit could be minimally protected against the elements by the raising of the forward windshield and erection of a canvas top. The rear area could be outfitted with folding seats for infantry and similarly see a canvas top erected for some protection against sun and rain.

1953-56 Dodge M56 R2 ~SOLD~

Featured

1 Primary

1 Primary

This 1953-56 Dodge M56 R2 is a former Air Force crash truck. Similar to the more familiar M37 but quite a bit rarer, there were only 308 of these built and of this total, only 221 had the Braden winch on the front.  Only a handful of the units produced still exist.  Mechanically speaking, these trucks are identical to their more common M37 cousins, but with a longer wheelbase–126″ vs. 112.  Fitted with a 10,000lb Braden winch, most were equipped with a grappling hook to tow wreckage.  Built by Dodge with just the cowl and nose installed, the Oneida Products Corporation of Canastota, New York built the rear body.  This truck is number 295 of the 308 produced, which matches up with the date of manufacture and delivery (July 27, 1956).   The truck and chassis were built in 1953 but apparently it did not go to Oneida for final outfitting until 1956.   The motor is a 230ci L-head six with a 4-speed 4wd manual transmission, a 2-speed transfer case, and axles with 5.83:1 gear. These trucks were built to save the lives of pilots of the U.S. Air Force.

The truck has a 24-volt system with the very hard to find Home lite PTO driven generator (230 volts 3 phase 80 cycle), generator controls and the always missing Engine Speed Governor for the generator (it does work).

This truck was nicely restored by the previous owner and I have over $12,000 in receipts for work completed on truck…mostly mechanical.  The paint and graphics on truck are a couple of years old and looks very nice for use in military equipment shows or parades.

Clear Title.  No Rust.  Complete fuel system re-build, NOS fuel pump, fuel tank removed and relined, new lines, new 24v plugs and wires, new switches and gauges, new axle seals, new starter, fuel senders, new coil and ignition system, new brakes, new master cylinders, new brake lines, New upholstery, new axle bearings.  It comes with two very hard to find Fire Axes, two fire suits, stretcher and miscellaneous spare parts, several factory manuals, and enlarged wiring diagrams.

1953 Dodge M-37

Dodge M37 (1)

Dodge M37 (1)

Six prototypes of the vehicle were produced in early-to-mid 1950 based on the WC series Dodge vehicles used in World War II, with the first pre-production pilot vehicle rolling off the assembly line on 14 December 1950.[2] Many of the components on the M37 are similar or identical to the World War II vehicle and many deficiencies of the previous series were corrected in the M37. Notably, a conventional pickup truck style bed replaced the platform on the World War II vehicle, simplifying production.

1953 Dodge M-37 – Vehicle had a full vehicle restoration in 2015 with an entirely new electrical system, paint, new canvas seats, cab top, and troop carrier canopy. This is a unique find for such an authentic and classic military vehicle that won’t be found anywhere else outside of a museum.
Price – $32,000

Original Willys M-38A1 Jeep ~SOLD

Willy's M38a1

Willy’s M38a1

The M38A1 was the first vehicle to feature the round fender design that would later become the distinguishing body style of the CJ-5 (part of the Universal CJ series). Produced first in 1952, following the retirement of the M38 model, the M38-A1 was re-designed as an “stand-alone” improvement, featuring round front fenders, a contoured hood, a two-piece windshield, top mounted windshield wipers, and powered by the new “Hurricane” F-Head engine and Warner T90 transmission. The M38A1 (referred to by Willys as the “MD”), like the M38, had a frame and suspension that was much stronger than its civilian sibling, the CJ-5. With reversed spring shackles, military instruments, and a 24-volt electrical system, the M38A1 was a strong military work horse that was frequently fitted with a machine gun.

Willys M-38A1 Jeep with a solid body runs and drives well, still 24 volts, $9500, with radios and antenna.
