2010WranglerMountain I'm glad yall enjoyed the pics. Some good conversation here.

jhjk29 This picture may help a little bit. Definitely 7 slot grill. This is of my grandfather when he was stationed in Germany during the Korean War. I guess this is where I get my love of Jeeps from.

My 1942 GPW had pneumatic wipers, too. I had the manuals on the stock windshield for the soft top, and the pneumatic on the windshield for the after-market "Arctic hardtop" that I ran most of the time - as in my avatar.

I once jumped a broken heater switch in our humvee with a pair of vice grips and an MRE bag. Technically unimpressive, but the sergeant was pretty excited. Getting your heat working when you are in the field in Germany is always pretty kewl.

Speaking of which, wow. Can you imagine what driving one of those babies in Korea or Germany is like during the winter?

brucewayne wow ! Thanks for sharing

Up Hill Bill OK. Did some more research... That's an M38 military jeep. Used by US military after WWII and into Korea. So it's not a poseur!

Only about 60,000 were made before the M38A1 came out, so it's a rare bird, and in superb condition.....

Learned something....

You're right. No space between front fender and hood = CJ3A, or could actually be from an MB/GPW. The builder has clipped together a lot of parts, so tub may still be from a 3B. But, it's not real clear if there is a tailgate - just that vertical seem that doesn't look right for an MB/GPW

I'm sure there is more, but that's enough.....
Good enough for me. Kraut poser.

Damn. I dunno enough about old Jeeps, but uphill bill is indicating that's probably not the case.

Oh well. Maybe Elvis bought it when he was stationed there and had it done up like an Army Jeep.

Up Hill Bill That's a nice CJ (CJ3A, 1948-53 - I think) , fitted out to look military!

But, it's NOT a WWII Military MB or GPW "jeep"
