My M38a1 is a partial restoration still in work. It’s nearly all original or NOS stock parts. Still a 24v system. The vacuum windshield wipers work as expected. Picture taken on one of those rare NW days that not raining. I purchased this rough jeep about four years ago. When I purchased the jeep, there was no gas tank, no gas lines, no batteries or battery box. The previous owner told me that it also needed new brakes. One of the first things that I purchased was new brake shoes. When I opened up the wheels, I was looking at the lack of gear when I realized that there was no brake shoes, no brake drums, no brake lines, no brake cylinders and to my surprise no brake drums.
