Had been stored in a barn for a while but starts, runs, and brakes. Battery is brand-new and the Firestone tires have less than 200 miles on them.

    I think I’d want to keep this as-is… clean, maybe wax or even rubbing compound in places, but try to keep this original patina, and maintain/update any mechanicals necessary for reliable operation. NICE military jeep :-).

    Add me to the absolutely don’t restore list……I am slowly doing exactly what Joe describes on my green 1953 CJ3B……after transfer case leak repair and master cylinder overhaul.

    Since it was used by the military, it seems to me that by definition it is a military jeep. 🙂

    ok , yer right , I see nomenclature plates at least , but wait A MINUTE ? IT HAS A TAILGATE ???


    SEEJAY SIX and sgt carter take notes and educate yourself before commenting. What David is telling you is Fact. In my long military tour I drove many civilian type vehicles purchased by military delivered straight from factory with military requested option paint or painted and equipped at base motor pool. The Navy and Air Force did this more than Army and USMC. This is a genuine, very rare Jeep. And what’s with the machine gun and riffle carrier? You got ignorant tunnel vision. Fix it!
