USAF DJ Variant

This two-whel-drive version of the M38A1 was built for the U.S. Air Force under Willys Engineering Project 11323, and photographed in January 1955. It retained the 24-volt electrical system of the M38A1, and body features such as the recessed headlights and battery box, but most of the heavy-duty accessories were apparently removed. A rear-mounted gas tank was filled from the right side, and the full hardtop had sliding doors. Powered by the Hurricane F-head four, the "Dispatcher" was intended for non-combat maintenance and delivery work on military bases. It's not known how many of these may have been delivered to the Air Force or to other branches of the military. (Willys Motors)
