Lot 586: 20th Century Fox Willys M38 Jeep (Serial #59350).
Manufactured by Willys Overland Motors Inc., Toledo, Ohio and delivered to the military in March 1952. The Willys M38 was introduced in 1950 as a post-WWII military Jeep, being a ¼ ton 4 x 4 utility truck, serving as a light tactical vehicle. The M38 is outfitted with “pioneer” tools (axe and shovel) mounted on the passenger side, protruding headlights with guard wires, air vent in base of windshield and blackout lights. Powered by a 2199 cc. inline 4-cylinder engine mated to a 3-speed manual transmission with 2-range transfer case and, unique to the M38, features a front-end differential disengagement lever operated from the inside. Features a studio-mounted non-firing de-milled prop .30-caliber Browning 1919 machine gun. Due to the relatively minor cosmetic differences between their WWII counterparts, M38 Jeeps were regularly used by the studios for WWII films as well as those depicting the Korean War. Although we are unable to definitively tie its use to any particular film, this Jeep was likely used in filming M*A*S*H (1970). The odometer reads an unverified 36,127 miles. This M38 underwent both cosmetic and mechanical restoration in 2008 as well as a recent brake rebuild. Electrical system has been restored to original 24-volt specifications. This Jeep was brought to Telluride, Colorado and driven all over town for the premiere of Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. Debbie purchased this Jeep from 20th Century Fox with the Marilyn Monroe 1952 MG TD from Monkey Business. Mechanicals untested. Measures 133 in. long x 62 in. wide x 62 in. tall. Registered as a “Historical Vehicle” in California. In vintage good condition.
Estimate: $30,000 - $50,000 / Sold
