I just wanted to take a moment and introduce to you our family’s M38 Jeep. Since I was a young man growing up on my father’s ranch I have always had a love for military jeeps. I learned to drive at seven years old in a 1942 Ford, which is still in the family today. I wanted my own jeep and not knowing what I would find I set out in search for a jeep. After several months I came across an ad of a gentleman who had a 1951 M38 for sale. After an hour long phone conversation I loaded up my family and went on a journey to see our newest family member.
It is a tradition that each vehicle our family owns has a name. When we arrived to our destination, my daughter told me “dad this looks like Hank and let’s take him home”. I have enclosed several photos of the cleanup process of Hank. At first I thought it would be a few minor items to make Hank road worthy, then I learned about Kaiser Willys and then considered a frame off cleaning. Many thanks go to the staff at Kaiser Willys for providing me with such great customer service and a superior product I was able to get Hank back in great shape.
