Restored 1942 White Motor Co. M-3A1 Scout Car

Featured

M3A1 Armored Scout Car

M3A1 White Motor Company Armored Scout Car manufactured in 1942.  It is powered by a Hercules JXD Industrial Engine.  The fastest military vehicle of WWII (60mph), seat 8 soldiers (6 in back).  They mount two .50cal MG’s or one .50 & a Browning Water-Cooled .30 cal MG.

Eleven Scout Cars were bought to get every part needed to complete this one.  There probably are less than 200 in the U.S.  This one has been professionally restored, bare frame up.  It took 8 years to complete this vehicle and would be hard to find a finer one in America or the world.  Every bearing and seal are new.  It is a perfect 10 investment grade vehicle that will only go up in value.

The Engine was rebuilt, obtained from South America in sealed crate.  Disassembled & reassembled with new rings, seals and gaskets.

It has two gun mounts on M-35 skate trolleys &  long tail 50 cal. Cradle that was unique to only the Scout Car.  The top is in new condition, fits perfectly and has door side curtains.  The rear troop seats are the rarest parts on the whole truck, NOS in the box over 60 years old from Europe.  The zippered bottom seat cushions contain wool blankets.  Other New Old Stock parts include  Zenith Carb; brake booster; steering parts; all hinges and armor bolts.  Also included is a beautiful Browning water-cooled .30 cal dummy Machine Gun with  can, hose, ammo box, and original Canvas & leather cover plus cross cut saw, shovel, pick & Ax with NOS straps.

Upgrades to the original design include  4350 Heat Treated Rear Armor (far superior and way more costly), Turn Signals, stop lights and Mechanical fuel pump with a “pass through”  so a hidden electric fuel pump can be used.                                                      Would be nearly impossible to reproduce this vehicle for less than $125K in this condition with all the original NOS Parts gleaned from many countries over 8 years that are now dried up.  Plus there are extra parts and accessories included.  It has been driven about 200 miles since restoration and is proven reliable.  We use it for Air Shows and Military Events, parades, etc… Everyone loves it.  It has quite a unique sound when running.  It does not have any rattles when driven.  It is stored in a heated aircraft hangar.

1942 Dodge MASH Ambulance WC-27 US Army

Featured

WC-27 Ambulance

Dodge began producing light trucks immediately upon its formation in 1914. For the first few years these were based largely on the existing passenger cars, later specific chassis and body designs were used. Light- and medium-duty models were offered first, then a heavy-duty range was added during the 1930s and 1940s. Dodge produced its first prototypes of dedicated military trucks in late 1939: the 1/2 ton 4×4 VC series. Production of the VC series started in 1940. At the outset of World War II, Dodge produced the G-505 WC ½ ton series of military light trucks in 38 individual models, thousands of some models were produced, while only a few of some others were made. The WC ½ ton trucks replaced the 1940 VC-1 to VC-6 ½ton Dodge trucks which were also part of the G505 series. 79,771 of the ½ ton trucks were produced during late 1940–1942 under War Department contracts. WC models 1 to 50 were part of the 1/2 ton range and were 80% interchangeable in service parts with the later 3/4 ton models.

The Dodge WC series was a range of light military trucks produced by Dodge and Fargo during World War II. The series included weapon carriers, telephone installation trucks, ambulances, reconnaissance vehicles, mobile workshops and command cars. They were replaced after the war by the Dodge M-series vehicles. WC was a Dodge model code: W for 1941 and C for half-ton rating.

Entering production during 1941 to early 1942, they were specifically designed to serve as military ambulances. These early variants are distinguishable from the later ones by having a curved radiator grille, while the later ones (WC51 onwards) featured a flat grille. These versions were given a longer 123 in (3,100 mm) wheelbase.

  • Length: 195 inches
  • Height: 90 inches
  • Weight: 5340 net
  • Width: 75-13/16 inches

  • Payload: 1300 LB

71′ GAZ66 Expedition truck, Overlander, 4×4

Featured

For sale is a 1971 GAZ66 Expedition truck, Overlander, 4×4
(this is proper 4 wheel drive, i.e. when one wheel gets stuck the other three slow down enough to pull it out)
The truck has a fully rebuilt 4.2 V8 engine and is doing approx. 24 miles per gallon on LPG. Every screw has been looked at and replaced if necessary, it took months to rebuild and renew her.

Other parts that are new are the clutch, fuel pump, oil pump, power steering pump, all hydraulic hoses and perishable rubbers, clutch and brake master cylinder, brakes all round serviced, transfer box and seals serviced, new thermostat, new back lights, etc. Everything is working as it should, this vehicle is ready to drive away. She drives very smoothly, the power steering is exceptionally good, you can turn almost on a penny with her.
MOT and Tax exempt, very cheap on insurance especially, if you become a member of the Military vehicle and/or Caravan Club. Everything that was Russian and not user friendly has been replaced with standard British fitting components, making this vehicle exceptionally user friendly now. She drives on Petrol or LPG, which can be changed with a flick of a switch in the cab.
Comes with a new, not mounted electric winch, there is also a fully working compressor on board which can self inflate all the tires out in the field, CTIS. The tires are in good condition, comes with a brand new spare tire on the back.
For enthusiasts, there are numerous original parts inside and outside from the time when this truck was used as a Russian Military Radio Truck. There is an original air filtration system that cleanses the air inside the butt and also protects from chemical, germ or nuclear pollution from the outside, however, this equipment is not mounted and needs upgrading.
Original paintwork on the vehicle as of yet, however, we are in the process of having her painted, she is semi amphibious, has bullet proof tires, is fully operational and ready to drive away
All the hard and heavy duty work has been done on this vehicle to the highest level and no expenses spared. All parts have been sourced to the highest quality.
The emphasis was put on the mechanical and electrical reliability for long distance travelling. The intention was for us to travel to Morocco and beyond, however, due to circumstantial changes we are now selling the truck
The butt therefore is still in its developing stages, there are the basic frameworks for a double bed and settee, kitchen unit with cupboards, stainless steel sink, cooker hob and grill. Comes with a domestic gas tank fitted for easy refuelling without having to carry gas bottles. We have been comfortably living in her for 9 months
New stereo with Sony head unit, vibe slick speakers, 2 competition level amps with one of them being an original West Coast amp, bass bin. Wood burner with flu fully working, solar panels, leisure battery. The butt is being refurbished as we speak including a shower unit, etc.

The Canadian Military Pattern (CMP) truck was a class of military truck – of various forms – made in large numbers in Canada during World War II to British Army specifications for use in the armies of the British Commonwealth allies. Standard designs were drawn up just before the beginning of the war.

CMP trucks were also sent to the Soviet Union following the Nazi invasion, as part of Canada’s Gift and Mutual Aid program to the Allies. During the War CMP trucks saw service around the world in the North African Campaign, the Allied invasion of Sicily, the Italian Campaign, the Soviet Front, the Burma Campaign, the Battle of the Philippines (1941–42), the liberation of Northwest Europe, and the Western Allied invasion of Germany. CMP trucks also saw service in post-war conflicts in Indonesia, French Indochina, and the Portuguese colonies in Africa.

1944 Diamond T 4 ton wrecker

~For Sale By Owner ~

Contact Tom at t.masch@aol.com

1943-44 Diamond t wrecker W45 969A has had a singer owner for the last 12 years. She is a runner and is about 90% complete. It’s missing the small air compressor under the boom but otherwise, it is in good condition, the glass is good and it just had the points, cap and rotor replaced. It does need 2 new tires due to a couple with dry rot. It was painted about 5 years ago and newly reupholstered both seats and has an extra 6-volt battery. The boom and winch cable is good plus all data plates are there.

The Diamond T Motor Car Company was founded in Chicago in 1905 by C. A. Tilt. Reportedly, the company name was created when Tilt’s shoe-making father fashioned a logo featuring a big “T” (for Tilt, of course) framed by a diamond, which signified high quality.[1] From its beginnings manufacturing touring cars, the company later became known for its trucks. By 1967, as a subsidiary of White Motor Company, it was merged with Reo Motor Company to become Diamond Reo Trucks, Inc.[2]

During World War II, Diamond T produced a classic heavy truck in the 980/981, a prime mover which was quickly acquired by the British Purchasing Commission for duty as a tank transporter tractor. Coupled with a Rogers trailer, the truck gave sterling service with the British Army in North Africa Campaign, where its power and rugged construction allowed the rescue of damaged tanks in the most demanding of conditions.[3] In addition Diamond T built the entire range of the G509 series 4 ton 6X6s, including cargo, dump, semi tractor, and wrecker trucks,[4] as well as some lighter trucks, and even G7102 half tracks.[5] Diamond T ranked 47th among United States corporations in the value of World War II military production contracts.[6] Diamond T manufactured two pickup trucks: the Model 80 and the Model 201. Both pickups were powered by the Hercules QX-series 6-cylinder engines. The Model 201 was produced from 1938 to 1949.

When manufactured the Diamond-T 969A 4 ton, 6×6 Wrecker was powered by the 6 cyl., 529 cu. in. Hercules RXC engine that developed 106 hp. mated to a five speed manual transmission and two speed transfer case. It was equipped with the Holmes W-45 heavy duty military wrecker bed with its twin boom and two 5-ton winches at the front of the bed as well as a front mounted winch. A variety of other recovery equipment was carried, along with its own air compressor.

The vehicle weighed 21,350 lbs. and could tow 25,000 pounds. It was 292 in. long, 100 in. wide, and 116 in. high.

M-170 Frontline Ambulance

Featured

The need for a rough terrain frontline ambulance led to the M-170, which stretched the M-38A1 wheelbase from 81 to 101 inches and allowed for three patients in litters plus two crew members. It shared the vast majority of parts with the MD.

The Willy’s model MD, introduced in 1952 and known by the US Army as the M-38A1, was larger, lighter and more powerful than earlier Jeep designs, and became a mainstay of the US military for the next two decades. The longer-wheelbase version known as the M-170 was also adopted by all branches of the service for special applications, most notably as an ambulance. Sources differ as to total production, but it appears Willy’s built only about 4,000 of what they referred to as model MD-A.In addition to the extra 20 inches of length, the spare tire is mounted inside the body on the passenger side, to allow stretchers to extend to the rear where the spare would normally be on a military Jeep.

BRDM-2

The BRDM-2 (Boyevaya Razvedyvatelnaya Dozornaya Mashina, Боевая Разведывательная Дозорная Машина, literally “Combat Reconnaissance/Patrol Vehicle”) is an amphibious armoured patrol car used by Russia and the former Soviet Union. It was also known under the designations BTR-40PB, BTR-40P-2 and GAZ 41-08. This vehicle, like many other Soviet designs, has been exported extensively and is in use in at least 38 countries. It was intended to replace the earlier BRDM-1, compared to which it had improved amphibious capabilities and better armament.

1942 Dodge Command Car WC-56 Project

WC_56_Command_Car_Retro_Truck_33

This is a 1942 Dodge Command Car project. It appears to be a former Norwegian vehicle. This makes it a real WW II veteran of the European Theater.
The engine was reportedly rebuilt. It is very complete and original for its age. Most Command Cars were converted to Weapons Carriers during the war.
After the war most were cut down to be flat bed trucks. So it is amazing when they appear like this. I hope to have more photos and details soon.
