This 1952 Willys M38 saw duty in the Iowa Air National Guard and Army National Guard before it was acquired by its first civilian owner during the 1970s. The current owner acquired the truck in 2011 and has since refurbished it to resemble the vehicle driven by his commanding officer when stationed in Okinawa, Japan. Power comes from a 134ci “Go-Devil” Flathead four mated to a three-speed manual gearbox and a dual-range transfer case. This M38 is offered with a matching utility trailer, an RT-66/GRC receiver transmitter, a replica M1 Garand riffle, refurbishment records from 2011, and a clean Iowa title in the owner’s name.
