M-38 Pilot models from the CJ-3A info site

• CATEGORIES: Features, M-38 • TAGS: .

Bob Westerman has written a detailed overview of the M-38 pilot models.

From the website, Bob writes:  “NEW: 1/1/2009 In the time since this web-page was published some new photos of the Pilot Models have surfaced. The photos reveal that the pilot models were in a constant state of change as different features were implemented and tested. The new information shows that some previous assumptions are no longer valid. See the MVPA’s magazine Army Motors #126 for the latest information.

Visit the CJ-3A.Info website to learn more about the M-38 Pilot model history.

• CATEGORIES: M-38

1952_m38_davidsonUPDATE: This was purchased by a reader.  He has changed the color and removed the crap.  It looks much better now.

I had 3 ‘what was someone thinking’ moments while looking this jeep over.  Moment 1, what’s with the diamond plating under the bumper?  Moment 2, did someone paint the data plates on the dash?  Moment 3, what’s going on with the metal tubing that goes up from one step, around the windshield, and down to the other step?
