    New member and new owner of 1952 Willys M38

    Greetings everyone, glad to finally be apart of the conversation. I have been an avid fan of the Willys brand and finally was able to obtain a 52 Willys M38. It runs but needs lots of attention. I just put new tires on and looking to get fuel tank and line as well as new air cleaner assembly.

    I sent pics to my dad who served in Korea in 51 as a Marine machine gunner with 1st MAR DIV. he told me most of the M38’s the Marines used were “acquired” from Army units. All he did was paint over the big white star... he said when he returned to the states in the Reserves he drove around town in a M38.... even did donuts in my moms parents front yard..

    I am looking forward to restoring this and drive around Northern Arizona and take a trip down Route 66.

    Any advice on the restoration is most welcome. My goal is to get the engine running first, install new wiring harness, lights, brakes etc. after all that start getting into the details.

    Semper Fi to all the fellow Marines out there
    John in Arizona
