Year? M-38 Thessaloniki, Greece No Price


A seller named Φίλιππος Κερενκιώτης near Thessaloniki, Greece, let me know that he’s got an M-38 for sale. It’s a project, but it does include the proper paperwork.

He contacted me via FB, so if you are in/near Greece and interesting in this, I’ll hook you up with him. Maybe this is a good time to take your significant other to Greece?
