I知 Allen and live in Western NC. I just bought what I thought was a 1954 M38A1 and upon closer inspection am finding components of a 1956 CJ5. I found serial numbers of both on the vehicle. It has the body of the A1 and the front grill and 6v electrical system of the CJ5.
I am in the process of working on brakes, then I値l tackle the engine. I am taking off the huge mud tires that the last owner installed and replacing them with 6 - 16 ND tires and the original rims.
I thought I was going to do a little cosmetic work and put it on the road and now I am seeing that I have a huge project ahead of me.
I have very little auto mechanic experience but am mechanically inclined so with the help of this forum and YouTube I hope to figure it out. I also have a couple of buddies that have offered guidance.
Look forward to the forum and diving in the Willys.
