JUNIOR M38 - 1951

Junior Replicas also produces a reproduction of this model using a 2/3 scale.

The Willys M38 appeared in 1948, when the U.S. Army urgently needed a 4x4 vehicle of 1/4 ton., but did not wont to commit the resources necessary to developed a new model.

The solution was to take an existing civilian model, produced by Willys Overland, the CJ3A and to militarise it with all the necessary add-ons. This model was then incorporated into the Army, under the designation M38, and had a brilliant performance during the Korea war in 1950.

M38 and MB models, both exact replicas of the original
models, are supplied on the
U.S. Army official WW II colours:“Olive Drab” and
