Craig spotted this M-38A1 that’s been repowered with a Kubota diesel engine.

“1952 Willys M38A1 was brought back to life in 2015 after a two year restoration and modification was completed. Every nut and bolt was removed, inspected, replaced if damaged and reassembled to ensure this restoration did not leave any areas of the Jeep untouched. Two major modification were completed during the restoration. The electrical system was converted to a 12V system and the engine was replaced with a Kubota V2403 60 HP turbo diesel engine”

(04/26/2016) “1952 Willys Jeep/ M38A1 (former Military/early CJ) converted to Brush Fire pumper somewhere along the way. I don’t have much history on this vehicle.

(NOTE; PHOTOS SHOW FORMER UPPER HOSE TRAY, HOSE REEL AND TANK WHICH HAVE BEEN REMOVED AND SCRAPPED, REPLACED WITH SECOND SEAT IN REAR WITH MATCHING FRONT SEAT UPHOLSTERY) Now a GREAT truck for parades with the family or cruising the hills of California, or wherever. Fits in any garage!

Other details; Original 4 cyl Willys engine, transmission (3spd) high/ low range, 4 WD (though I’ve never locked front axles, all instruments work along with all electrical working.

History; I’m about the 3rd owner, purchased about 10 years ago from FF in CT. who purchased it from person in PA. As mentioned, definitely a former military M38A1 that was retrofitted as a fire pumper. Some base yellow paint on frame may point to it serving on air base or carrier? No other history known.”

UPDATE: Big price drop to $6500. It drives, but is not licensed.

“This is an original Air Force Jeep used to shuttle crew to and from flight lines. Also used for taxi-ing incoming and outgoing planes.
This vehicle still has the original 24 volt system, black out lights all work, Original canvas seats. Original engine, transmission and transfer case work just fine. New brakes all around, new tires, rebuilt carburetor. This is not a restored vehicle, this is “as found”. The side windows are roll up crank and work fine. The numbers painted on the door match the numbers on the dash data plate which also match the number on the chassis data plate. Only issue still remaining is it needs a good alignment. Have clean title but is not yet licensed.”
