This 1955 M38A1 started out as a project of my Dad’s. He worked on it for years, on and off I would give him a hand when I could. As time went on his failing health kept him from working on it as much, my uncle stepped in and took the Jeep back to his house, him and a few of his friends put it all back together in running condition. He then returned it back to my Dad. My dad was so happy to see it back up and running. He asked me to go with him to his very first car show. He tried to drive it there but with his health was unable to handle the Jeep, so I took over and drove him to the show. He really enjoyed the show and told me how he wanted to go to more, but the Jeep was mine to finish, and take him with me to the shows. Within a few months after this my Dad passed away, so I took over ownership of the Jeep, and worked very hard to get it restored to the shape it is in now!! The Jeep was built in my Dad’s memory, as seen by the windshield sticker “In Memory Of Dad”. I finished the Jeep off with a new set of tires just a few days before I returned to the same show that was the one and only he made it too. It has been a great honor to proudly show off the Jeep in his memory. The hood numbers are his military id numbers, he was first in the 507th Eng. And when he retired some 30 yrs later he was the Sarg of the Mess. So all the marking are for him, as are all the “props” I display in the Jeep at shows, his helmet, belt, sleeping bag, mess kit and other things. I am very proud to say that this Jeep will stay with me for as long as I can drive it, then it will be handed down to my son. Every where I go in it now I know my co-pilot is with me, My Dad !!!!!
