1953 M38A1 - This is an M38A1 with an oral history of a Marine Jeep at Port Hueneme and stayed in Southern California until recently. Three coats of paint, original green, orange, and then a rattle can flat black. Also, this is my first Jeep, and it is really for my daughter and I to put put around town and replaces my Dual Sport/Enduro bike riding days. I am focusing on \"preservation\" of it in it\'s existing condition, and then in 10 or so years, start a restoration to original military configuration. 10 years to collect parts! Still an F-Head. With some good advice from Mike, the jeep is now sporting a back seat and canvas cushions from Kaiser Willys.
Hello Mike, and Thank you for an oppurtunity to show off our vehicles. These are a couple of my 1957 M38A1 issued to the U.S. Marine Corp on May 30th 1957. She still has a ways to go, re-paint in OD green, tires, seats etc. Love your site, store and the great help and knowledge from the staff. Many thanks, Bill Clements
Here are a couple of pics of my m38a1cdn kaiser 1967 that I restored. I am the driver in the one pic. My brother is behind at the very rear wearing the maroon hat and t-shirt along with some buddys we served with. This was taken at the Canadian Airborne reunion july 2005 Thanks Bill Majovsky
This 1955 M38A1 Jeep was entered in 2012 Larimer County Fair Parade on July 28th. Received a letter July 30, 2012 saying :\"Congratulations and thank you for exhibiting an Award Winning Entry in the 2012 Larimer County Fair Parade.\" It was a thrill for the many fans and kids along the parade route to see this U.S. Army Jeep with the American Flag on the back. The theme of the parade was \"Red ,White, and Blue\". I wore my Vietnam era fatigues with my Service Medals and the same Cal .45 M1911 pistol that I carried in Vietnam from June 19,1968 thru June 19, 1969. Served in U.S. Army 1st Logistical Command, ACofS,Ammunition, at Long Binh, Vietnam Tour 365.
These are photos of my 1954 Willys M38A1 that I belonged to my father before he passed away in December of 2005. He bought it at our home town (Diboll, TX) city auction in 1975 for $850. I helped him repaint it from white to a GMC green and put a black vinyl top on it to use as our first true off road hunting vehicle in the piney woods of Angelina County in south east Texas. It had sat for a lot of years after he retired. I finally picked it up in October of 2007 to start repairing and fixing it up.
