    The "M38" looks suspiciously like a FrankenJeep with an OD paint job - or a lot of rework done under the hood.

    The other little Jeeps look like the starting place for two or three projects, buy...

    " Sorry for the incorrect information. "

    No need to apologize - what we have here is a previously undocumented feature (at least to us). Now we can say; "On a few examples of early 1950...
