“1953 M38 Willys Military Jeep with 30 caliber replica machine gun and radios. Overall good condition and a head turner! The paint job is probably an 8. The radios worked the last time I tried them however they are designed for 24v system and the Willys was converted to 12v and need more juice to operate fully. There are a few small rusted areas (floor board, battery compartment) and I can get additional photos if you have serious interest. The windshield does not have wipers. The siren is not currently working. I’m not sure if its a wiring, motor issue or just needs some tlc. It is very loud however when it works. I put a new carburetor on it and have the original. If it sits for a short time I usually have to put a little fuel in the carb to start it. It runs well and has been used in parades, festivals and ice cream runs in town but just don’t use it that much anymore since I moved”
