From my thread on helping me identify my M38 body you will know that I started looking for a M38 chassis to replace the CJ currently under it. Well I found what seemed like a promising donor. Problem is, Im not going to take it apart. Other than the 12V conversion, carb and roll bar this thing is pretty nice and original. And its early, like I wanted. I didn't expect any of this when I went to inspect it, but wow. There is not one spec of rust on this jeep, not even in the cowl battery box. Being an early production, all that hard to find early stuff that I accumulated for Franken Jeep will now go back onto ol yeller.

So the plan has changed, Franken Jeep will continue to be a M38 on a new CJ chassis and I will keep it up at Camp Lockett where I like to explore.

This one will be returned to M38 trim throughout. Im not going to do a 1000 pt restoration either, I want to enjoy it!

Back from travel. Got a place all sorted out for the new Jeep in the steel building.

Im going to do a couple of things. One is to fix the janky brakes, the other to just start inventorying what is there, what isn't and what is wrong, or incorrect. I think I;; do a better job photoing everything before anything is touched.

The brakes have started easy enough. Came apart nicely, inside looks generally Ok except first wheel has a rusted cylinder. One side completely siezed.

Well, unless it's a flightline rig it's the wrong color....
