1955 Willys

Selling a 1955 M38A1. This is a Korean War era Willy's. Clean title in hand and registered through May. Exempt from Smog checks. Has original service plate.
Originally purchased for $5000 with about $20,000 spent on restoration so far. This is not a museum / showroom restoration. It was purposefully left with some patina and designed to be an every day driver. If you're looking for a perfect replica, please look elsewhere. I've also attached a photo of the original listing so you can see the drastic transition.
*Please call or text714 333 5638if interested. Serious inquiries only, please. Price is negotiable.
Odometer: 30, 692
The following has been done by me since purchase:
- Rebuilt Steering Column
- Complete Brake System Rebuild (new master cylinder, lines, drums)
- New Solex Carburetor
- New Fuel Pump
- Pro Comp 15 Inch Wheels
- BF Goodrich All Terrain Tires
- Custom Paint Job
- New Rear Blackout Lights
- New Front Seat Upholstery
- Custom Soft Top
- Updated Insignia
- 12V Electrical Conversion
Will probably need a tune-up soon and has a minor oil leak (just needs new oil pan). Otherwise, starts right up and runs solid. Buy yourself a piece of history!
