HISTORY of our Willys Jeep:

Our Willys Jeep M38A1 is not a Dutch NEKAF Jeep (Nederlandse Kaiser-Frazer) as you mostly see in Germany. She served in Danish Army and is one of 1000 Jeeps bought by the Danish Government directly from the US in 1960/61. I bought her 2008 in a small town called „Wenden“ in  the Middle West of Germany.
As the rear propeller shaft decided to fall off the Jeep I started a full frame-off restoration in 2009.
The whole process took me a few years, cause I weren’t able to work every day on the Jeep and I am not a profession. So I have learned a lot. In the beginning of the restoration process my wife and I decided to paint the Jeep in DAK color (Deutsches Afrika Korps) and we think, she turned out pretty well. She got a brand new MD JUAN BODY KIT. We used the tub and the fenders. All other body parts could be restored and installed again.
The axles, engine and transmission were fully rebuild with lots of NOS-Parts by a Willys Jeep Shop in South East Germany. The restoration of the Willys Jeep was mostly done in 2017 and we got her back on the streets, including German TÜV!
I am sorry to say that the engine rebuild wasn’t as good as expected. The engine broke down in September 2021 after 900 carefully driven Miles. The reason was a crack from one of the coolant passages to Cylinder 2 and 3. The Block was not reparable. Worst Case!
I got a new used Swiss Army engine block to start from the beginning. The new engine was build in cooperation with US-Car specialists from Ol‘ Skool Customs in Dieburg, Germany. It took me 13 month to get the new engine back in. This happened in October 16th, 2022. The new engine runs great. Fingers crossed for the first Miles test-driving.
