“1950 Willy’s M38. NOT RUNNING. All parts are there though. I bought it from the gentleman who brought it home from the Korean War after he served his time and bought it from the military. Clean title, in my name. My plan was to rebuild it (as I have done with a previous CJ2a) but other time commitments take priority. Engine turns over, as do the wheels. Not shown in the photos are the seats, gas tank, rear bench seat, windshield/glass and some other parts.”
