Jim Gill has a unique jeep that many people aren't familiar with. It's called a CJ-V35/U. Only 1000 were ever made in 1950. The NAVY contracted with Willys to produce them as strictly Communications/Radio jeeps. Only about 34 of them are known to exist today. Notice the front headlight bezels. They are unique to the V-35. Also unique are the claw hooks on the front frame. Jim has two of them, both in very poor condition. He hopes to make one decent restoration out of these two. For more information on the CJ-V35/U, click Here.
In July of 1999 Jim Gill, MVPA Member #18992, uncovered his 1951 M-38 in the town of Beverly, West Virginia. His lack of knowledge about early military jeeps and the restoration process was an asset to him. Had he known what he was getting into, he may not have undertaken the project. Jim has no regrets however, because the project is coming along very well. With the recent help of fellow FLMVPA member Emmett Thompson and neighbors Scott Walker and Mike Stoessel, Jim figures he is about 2/3 finished with a total frame off restoration. It won't be long and he'll have the totally rebuilt engine running, then he can start on all the body work.
