1953 M-38A1 Cobb, GA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-38A1

UPDATE: **SOLD**

“Selling an October 1953 M38A1 in solid condition / excellent restoration possibilities. 24-volts, comes with new batteries, new gaskets, hoses, and a bunch of parts, although most of those parts were the original ones that were taken off when newer ones were installed. There are a couple small spots on the passenger side that have old repairs that could use a skim of filler to refresh them (see photo below, beneath the battery compartment and just below slave receptacle dish), but sheet metal is in great condition and no panels need replacement or major repairs. The serial number is right at the change-over from Gen 1 to Gen 2. This jeep has the hinged grill and thumb screw battery cover so it’s one of the last of the first-generation M38A1s. Awesome Korean War / Vietnam piece of military history.”
