In 1973 my dad bought the 1953 M38A1 Army Surplus. Dad and got it running and street legal for Ohio standards. Since I was too young to drive yet my brother drove the Jeep for a year and then joined the Army. So then I got too drive the Jeep to school for two years and when I joined the Army and the Jeep went into the barn to live for over 35 years resting into the ground. So in 2011 I drove up from Tennessee and rescued her from the grave. I spent from January 2011 till May 2016 fixing her up. Dad died in February 2016 never seeing the finished Jeep. Now the Jeep will live in Tennessee and will outlive another generation and more.
Here are some photos of the new Jeep wiring. I’m going to hook up all the wires outside of the dash, just to make sure everything works, then shorten the wires and install them behind the dash.
