1951 M-38 Holbrook, Ny eBay

• CATEGORIES: M-38 • TAGS: .

Here’s a ‘professionally’ restored M-38 that doesn’t appear accurately restored.  You can see it is missing the M-38 grille and grill mount, suggesting this is a CJ frame. It doesn’t have a M-38 gas tank and the inlet is in an odd position.  The windshield vent should be bolted, not hinged. The rear of the frame looks civilian;  Here’s the way the rear should really look. Note the drain piece where the hood connects to the body — that is from a CJ-3A.  And, last but not least, the Dash Plate is installed upside down and backwards …

“YOU ARE LOOKING AT A 1951 WILLYS JEEP M38 ARMY GREEN WITH ARMY GREEN INTERIOR,  HAS GO DEVIL ENGINE,    ALL DECALS , GAS CAN, SHOVELS, POWER TAKE OFF LOCKING FRONT HUBS, CANVAS TOP IS OFF .  THIS JEEP IS PROFESSIONALLY RESTORED.
