Bought a mixed breed Jeep!

A Frame Off Restoration

Stacks Image 6
Our very first mistake was our very first action! We bought a 1953 M38A1 Navy Jeep (Seabees) with a M38 Engine! It turns out that M38A1’s had the “Hurricane” F-134 straight four overhead. Our jeep has a “Go-Devil” L-134 straight four flat head. The engine is in good shape and runs well. We plan to do the initial restore with the L-134 and then in the future replace it with the correct engine. For now we just enjoy the fact that this jeep has parts that were active during WWII, Korea, and the Vietnam era!
