Hi, I’m Austin Boone, I’m 18 and I live in Chugiak Alaska. My restoration started about 3 months ago when I sold my car to buy this 1952 M38. It was love at first sight and ever since I saw it I knew I had to have it. Everything I have goes into it. I even flew my grandpa up so we could work on it for awhile, since I’m a rookie. So far my restoration consists of a lot of internal engine, electrical, and brake work, I can already drive it around, but eventually I hope to turn it into even more of a head turner than it already is.
This certain jeep is pretty unique because its Arctic addition brought up during the Korean war and on top of that it was a fire marshals, as you can see by the pictures. It also means a little more to me because my family is a military family and its cool to have it in the family and be able to drive it on base like it was back in the day. Hope you like the pictures.
