“There just aren’t many of these available. STOCK MILITARY.
Clear Pennsylvania title. Has been stored in a barn: perfect for restoration. ………………This M38A1 uses a waterproof 24 volt system. That has not been modified. Two new 12 volt in-series batteries, their original cables, “T” ignition post, floor-push pedal ignition, voltage regulator, starter, generator, internally housed points, cond, cap, wires and sealed plugs are all in working order: some new. The vehicle starts, runs and drives. The brakes, clutch, transfer case, HI/low trans, linkage cables, emergency brake, steering gear, suspension (needs shocks), and low- mile military tires are all are in good working order. Throttle, choke, crankcase vent handles and cables operate as designed. An aftermarket fuel pump, f/p regulator and hoses were added however the original fuel pump, hard lines, fittings, mounts and cables were left in their original positions: disarmed. A new fuel tank was purchased but not hooked up……….
Corrosion exists at the side panels , below the spare tire, some at rear floor behind the tank. An experienced restorer inspected the vehicle and stated the body is nice and solid and all existing corrosion is basic and easily reparable. …………

Everywhere else: the hood, (an original shovel is mounted beneath), fenders, windshield, grill, interior front floor, rear deck, wheel wells and dash (some corrosion lower left) are in good condition. This is a Dutch Army NEKAF with that nation’s” Koninklijke Landmacht” modifications intact: The Dutch Army radiator, auxiliary power outlets inside and out, the ‘guarded’ side mounted marker lights, blackout lights and speedo in Kilometers.

MOTOR: This 134 cu in Hurricane 4 cylinder engine compression tested at 70,65,70,70. Not Good. These should be around 130. The plugs are black (but not wet), it runs too rich and throttles poorly. I have run it through all three forward gears in both high and low and reverse as well. (The Borg Warner T-90 operates well). The diagnostic on the motor halted this individual’s restoration project. An engine tear-down and rebuild is required: something not covered by my “MOS”, but perfect for a genuine military vehicle restorer. I have videos of this vehicle running. …….Also included on this NEKAF is an Army M-222 signal generator, whip antenna, antenna mount, and an unrelated handset. The original working canvas top (good. Dirty but no rips or wear spots. All snaps and fasteners function. The rear window is in excellent condition), folding frame, support bars with all straps intact installs perfectly. A jerry can, mount, rear mounted spare are included. Tires are period military and like new. The seats front and rear are original. Spares include new fuel lines for the original fuel system and new red primered tank, an additional 24 volt generator, fording hose, 1 gallon of correct paint, 2 new drive belts, new under-fuel tank felts, grease tubes, wheel cylinders, extra side mirror and arm, wheel chocks, hydraulic jack etc
