My Dec 1954 M38A1

Post by Pat Gray » Mon Dec 07, 2020 4:09 pm

Just wanted to show you my new project. It came from Susanville California and was used as a street sweeper. Then the owner brought it up to Washington State and sat in a field until a friend of mine found it and asked if it was for sale. After few phone calls I was able to inspect it and found that it was in really good condition. Thanks to hydraulic fluid leaking it kept the floor and sheet metal preserved.

Thank you Ray!
This one will be a lot of fun. I think the hood has been changed at some time. I thought it was unusual that it has 2 antenna brackets, could it have been a CO's jeep? Note the grass in the jerry can holder, I had to wait for a few months for the birds to finish raising the little one's before I could move it!!!! Having it be it's B-Day month, I figured time to start the restoration.

Well,
Removed the air filter today. Found a few things that have been living in it. Can the filter element be flushed out and cleaned?

Was able to do a little more today. I don't know why someone did this but it took a little work to get it back.

Thanks,

My jeep came from California and I am very lucky to only deal with a little rust issues. Starting to cut out the bad spot and prep for a patch.

Found this after removing the antenna mount on the passenger side today. And gained some progress on the rust patch. I have a little filling to do on the body. When the pinch weld was applied it put a dimple in the panel.
