1951-m38-mckinney-tx4

“All original!! Original four-cylinder 60hp motor, all lights in working order that air raid light/blackout light is the light on the fender as well as the headlights even the gauge lights work! Tires are almost new but I have been driving it quite a bit lately… Original windshield wipers that are exhaust fed, original front and rear seats, original plates on the dashboard As well as all the brackets on the bumpers for lifting and towing… original even down to the front tow rope. Too many extra list!

Mechanically this jeep is amazing! The brakes have been re-done recently you can see it in the photos… This jeep goes maximum speed of 50 miles an hour most of these jeeps only go 30 to 35… It’s reliable starts every time even when it hasn’t been driven for weeks! Transmission is great all the gears work including the low and high, all the axles work, this is a running machine and I’ve been using it to drive my daughter to school each day and take the family out on rides on the weekends.

No tire kickers please serious inquiries only! I don’t have time for time wasters that have a lot of questions and want to talk about history… Serious callers only… Text is great and if we want to proceed we can talk on the phone…”
