Surprised Did you notice in the first photo that the M-38s lined up on the left column of jeeps all have wire cutters mounted on their front bumpers?

Also in the fifth picture from the bottom with the three marines around the M38A1. Did you see how the rear lifting shackles are mounted on the upper corners of the body with the steel bars running down and under the body!

P.S. Spring is coming, the Hoboken New Jersey St. Patrick's Day Parade is next Saturday. It's time to fire up the old girl and get her ready to roll.

Regards to Everybody. Dennis V. Wink

If you look at the 3rd photo down, the dash mounted gun holder is the hand rail...

Same on the driver's side in another photo...

Those are not standard lifting shackles on the upper body -- they don't have the 90 degree bend at the pin. I also think I could see a standard one peeking out below the bumperette (but I could be wrong). Great set of pictures, Luis.

Maybe that clevis is used to lash it down to the deck of the ship? Or used to quide (spin, turn) the jeep to where it lands when off landing, by crane?

In the last pic, forward of the star; it looks like those are hood blocks? For what purpose could those be for?

Thanks for posting the pic, Luis. It's great to see A1's on duty. Wink

THAT IS PROBABLY DUE TO THE NEGATIVE BEING REVERSED WHEN THEY PRINTED THE PHOTO.

The Navy and USMC hoisted their equipment much more than the Army and Air Force did. Even during WWII you saw the USN and USMC vehicles with added on and more practical lifting devices. The willys clevis inside the bumperettes when used often damaged the gas can and the spar tire mount.
Those steel straps running from the added clevises down the tub and into the frame are clearly designed to allow lifting the jeep from those two aft locations.

I also noticed the reversed negative in that tan desert colored A1C.

Sometimes magazines will flip pictures to make sure it works better with the 'gutter', or the crease in the magazine. This is more prevalent in the times where the magazine editors had to work with what they had & couldn't get more pictures or digitally enhance what they had like they do now.

What I wouldn't give to be allowed to spend an hour in Luis's first photo (in his original post).

Imagine all the take-off parts I could get. A new gas tank (leak-free) and five original tires would be top of my list. Wink
