About

Original 1951 Willys Jeep model MC M38. Korean war era jeep built by Willys for use by US military from 1950-52. Approx 75,000 of this model military jeep were built. The 'Last of the true flat fendered jeep. A step up mechanically from the WW II MB/GPW. Probably the finest military jeep built. Just bought M100 to complete the look of a Jeep & it's trailer.
This jeep was purchased in 1999 from a relative of a friend. He told me the jeep had been stationed in Ft Leanordwood MO. He bought it at surplus mid 70s and drove it for a number of years. Parked it in late 70s. It was covered by 'Best top' type vinyl top protecting it from the harsh Iowa winters. Sandblasting & paint is pretty much all I have done other than having MIL engine rebuilt. Jeep's hood honors 2 relatives of mine who gave with their lives for Old Glory. Capt A Agan USMC Fighter pilot, WW II & Korea Vet, KIA Korea 1951 & Pvt H Janes US Army MIA Korea 1952.
