Jeep M38A1 / Willys M38A1

Jeep M38A1 / Willys M38A1 information

The M38A1 was the replacement for the M38, and a very different vehicle with new frame, body, engine and axles.
Know it by: It was the first round fender jeep.

The bulk of US Army procured construction took place 1952 thru 1955. Sporadic Army & US Marines contracts continued occasionally until 1968.
The Ford of Canada asembled M38A1 CDN's and Willys built a couple of batch contracts of the M38A1 CDN's for the Canadians.
