M-38 windshield frame.  Is that front bumper on upside-down?
There's a reason it's called Ol' Unreliable

LOL, Maybe  there's a few things on her that are just wrong.  I have seen the term Bubba thrown around.  Kinda fits.
On myself, Dad had a jeep back I the 60's when I was a kid.  it was a ford that a sheet metal guy built a body for.  As a 8 or 9 year old I really wanted to drive it.  All I could do was mess with it. I wasn't supposed to be messing with it.  I recall having the front end jacked up in the garage one day.  I guess learning how use a jack.  I had it up there a ways but couldn't figure out how to get it back down.  Running out of time, if figure I would just push the start button and it would fall off the jack.  it did and kept going through the garage door.   It was sold off soon after before I could reach the pedals.  probably for my own safety.  No problem I would get me one when I grew up.  Fast forward some 50 years and here we are.
 
The Jeep.  The story goes that she came off a ranch in Rancho Cucamonga.  It wasn't titled until 55.  I don't know how long the PO had it but it looks like it went through a cleaning up and in the 70's maybe.  The PO passed 15 years ago and she sat ignored in a barn for a long while.  the PO's got her out and running.  New tank, Carb, Brakes, Steering, some wiring, etc.  Said He was going to restore her and his wife came down with some heath problems.  A wad of cash and 12 hours of driving with a borrowed trailer and now its mine.
 
I start digging in to it when I get it home and nearly everything that makes it go needs attention. Brakes work in that it will stop.  but after looking over some other things they need to be pulled apart.
 
The engine kind of runs.  pulling the dip stick the inside of the filler tube shows signs of water.  tests indicate its not from the cooling system.  reading the manual I got it turns out there is supposed to be a PCV valve.  according to the manual I would see the water signs I do with out it.  While going through this I took a compression test and its a solid 60 psi.  So, Its running as well as can be expected.  Better really.  While I'm looking into rebuilding this Henry J Supersonic shows up on CL.  the price is to high.  Couple weeks later it's less.  then its even less.  Long story short I bought it for even less.  it's story is that it had been rebuilt long ago and never run.  The guys dad was a HJ racer back in the day.  You pull the 134 out of a HJ and stick in 400 HP then you got something that'll keep up.  Dad had picked it up as a spare for a car he bought 20 years ago.  New the guy that built it, swore it was good.  I get it home and pull the head.  0.020 over outside of a little bloom from sitting for 20 years looks good.  Valves are new.  I'll pull it apart and look over the bearings build it back up and the Willys will have a new heart.

It's your Jeep but don't get too crazy with the engine. I have driven a few that had too much under the hood. On one Jeep I had to rebuild the transmission twice and the rear axle once (not mine). If you want to get silly during WWII some guys put an Allison V12 in a Jeep. Talk about overkill.

Must have not been clear the new motor is a Henry J L134 Kaiser Supersonic.  Or, at least the block is.  Head is a Willys that Someone has removed The J in Jeep and milled the head to Supersonic spec.  The 400 HP was what was put in the Henry J for racing.
I'm with you on flat fender HP.  To much is not a good thing.

Soft leather, tuck & roll.  They are a little nice for the intended use.  I need to find a head for it to complete the Supersonic package.  Right now its just got the supersonic tag on the block.  you can get those on eBay.
