My New early M38

Post by Bryan Burt » Mon Oct 28, 2013 9:43 pm

My next project! It's begging me to start! This is an early 1950 Willys M38 and is nearly untouched all the way from the time it was used by the United states Military. Later in its life it was used by the Civil Defense Agency. Then sold at an auction in the 1960s to its first civilian owner. It stayed in hiding for 40 years in and then outside a warehouse in shreveport, LA. I get to be the second civilian owner! Im excited about this build. Its all 24 volt still also. Rear floor is all perfect, front floor needs some work and the sides need a little also. I have done way worse! ha Watch my youtube videos. My youtube account is Bryan Burt also. Thought I would share! :D
