A direct knockoff of the CJ-3A, the M38 was upgraded for GI use by a stronger frame and suspension,a 24-volt electrical system, and a multitude of military accoutrements. These rigs saw combat in Korea,but production was low at 61,423 units from 1950-52. An export version was built from 1953 to 1955 for foreignmilitary forces. The headlight guards, blackout lights, battery panel on the cowl and tool notches on thebody (passenger side) are the way to ID them. Some were equipped with Ramsey winches.
