1953 M-38A1 Various Places **SCAM**

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1 • TAGS: .

There are multiple ads across the country for a 1953 M-38A1 for only $3000. This too-good-to-be-true offer is made using a gmail address that is also selling other vehicles across the country. It looks like a scammer to me.

Here’s the ad:
“Army Jeep Very good body, converted to 12 v new reduction starter, c00ntact: monicamiller107@gmail.com”

1955 Wagon Trip Around the World

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles • TAGS: .

Just a couple updates tonight.

In 1955, Theodore Bumiller set out for an around-the-world adventure in a Willys Wagon. He captured his trip in photos and video. I attempted to learn more about his trip, but I only learned that his daughter is now a noted author (maybe someone else will have more luck). I emailed her to learn more about her father’s adventures, but have yet to receive a reply.

“1950 Willy Overland Jeepster, an older restoration done over 20 years ago but still looks nice. It runs and drives nice, except 2nd gear pops out of gear when you release pressure off the accelerator pedal. I am not a mechanic but I think it may need a clutch adjustment. Excellent condition top and side curtains, no holes or rips. Nice black and red exterior and interior. New tires with Willy’s hubcaps. Converted to 12 volt for convenience. Priced very fair for a collector and fun classic car. I will be posting pictures in a few days or so. No low ball offers please! ”
