Sounds like one of them is an M38A1.
I believe these had 24 volt systems. There should be a round "hole" on the side of the jeep below the battery. This was a plug-in power source for running other equipment in the field.

If it's in original condition or close to it, I would think about a restoration.

You could use the other two to modify or what ever.
