This is my 1952 Model M38 U.S. Army jeep. Garage kept. This is one the last of the flat fender jeeps. Introduced in 1950 at the beginning of the Korean war. Only 45,173 were made. Production ended in Sept of 1952. I rebuilt it from the ground up, complete body off restoration 2 years ago. NO RUST ANYWHERE! NO LEAKS. All parts were sandblasted and primed. This included the chassis, body, fenders, and all parts large and small. Any rusted parts were discarded and replaced. All new NDCC military tires, new brake system, new wiring harness, gas tank seats, canvas. The jeep had a Ford Pinto engine when I got it. I got rid of that and installed a rebuilt Willys L4-134 “Go Devil” 60 HP engine which was the original for this Jeep. I also upgraded to a 12 Volt system including a one wire alternator. Installed front seat belts and turn signals, and 12 volt plug for accessories. The drive train is in excellent operating condition. It’s been driven only 500 miles or so since restore. Mostly to military, car shows, and parades. The siren gets this Jeep plenty of attention at parades and at these events from vets and the general public. Lots of “Thumbs Up” from other drivers when driven around town. Drive it anywhere at 40 or 45 MPH. For longer distances, it has a tow bar with 2” ball and electrical connections. It can be flat towed. No trailer needed.
It has few small issues that I guess were not important to me. The vacuum windshield wiper gets the vacuum from the fuel pump. The engine I installed had a standard
fuel pump. Never bothered me as I avoid taking it out in the rain. Wipers have a manual control. Windshield has Rainex on it. Water just blows away. Emergency brake cable not hooked up. I have the cable. Fuel gauge stopped working. Easy inexpensive fixes.
Might consider trade for a Ford Model A coupe in similar condition
