Dodge M-43 01

Nice solid Dodge M-43 Ambulance from the desert. A straight body that was used as a Mountain Rescue truck.

The M-43 3/4 ton rated ambulance is a variant of the M-37 cargo truck, built by Dodge as a follow-on to the World War II vintage WC-54 Dodge ambulance and WC-64 KD Dodge ambulance, both part of the G502 series of WC 3/4 ton trucks.

The M-43 is based on the M-37 cargo truck but differed from the M-37 by having the panel-type closed ambulance body consisting of the driver’s compartment and the patient’s compartment with a connecting partition door.

No engine, but the drivetrain is intact. Only $1500

Chieftain Tank

Featured

The FV4201 Chieftain was the main battle tank of the United Kingdom during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. It was the “most formidable main battle tank in the world” at the time of its introduction in 1966 with the most powerful main gun and most effective armor of any tank yet made.[4][not in citation given]. This was further improved while in service with Chobham armor upgrades.

German WW2 half-track armored personnel carrier

Featured

Restored Sd.Kfz. 251/7 D (Sonderkraftfahrzeug 251) half-track APC
Original 4170 cc, 6 cylinder Maybach HL 42 TUKRM engine
The Sd.Kfz. 251 was designed by the Hanomag company, based on its earlier, unarmored Sd.Kfz. 11 vehicle. It was designed to transport German infantry into battle and were commonly referred to as “Hanomags” by both German and Allied soldiers.
There were four main model modifications (A through D), which formed the basis for at least 22 variants. The initial idea was for a vehicle that could be used to transport a single squad of 10 infantrymen to the battlefield protected from enemy small arms fire, and with some protection from artillery fire. In addition, the standard mounting of at least one MG 34 or MG 42 machine gun allowed the vehicle to provide suppressive fire for the rifle squad both while they dismounted and in combat. This vehicle is equipped with an MG 42.
The armor plates were designed to provide protection against standard rifle/ machine gun bullets (like the 7.92×57mm Mauser bullet). The front-facing plates were 14.5mm thick; the sides were steeply angled, V-shape 8mm thick plates. This level of armor provided protection against normal (non-tungsten) rifle AP round, which could pierce about 8mm of vertical armor.
A strong design feature of the Sd. Kfz. 251 was the large track area, with the characteristic “slack track” design with no return rollers for the upper run of track. It also had the Schachtellaufwerk system of overlapping and interleaved main road wheels common to virtually all German half-tracks of the period.
The vehicle is in excellent condition and has been kept in a garage for the last few years in Prague, Czech Republic.

1942 White Scout Car

Featured

 

For Sale is a 1942 White Scout Car.  The restoration was a complete frame-off restoration using NOS parts and parts from several suppliers.  The JXD engine was completely rebuilt by an automotive machine shop and it runs like a top.

Items rebuilt: brakes, steering box, brake booster, transmission, transfer case, drive shafts, all bearings including wheel and transfer assemblies, radiator cored, and gauges rebuilt; if you name it, it was worked on.

With the Scout Car is a full set of canvas including top bows, extensions, carry bag for extensions, door posts door canvas, top canvas with straps and carry bag for the canvas.  The large bag on the rear of the vehicle has all of the door and top canvas.  The SCR 508 radio also works from the back of the vehicle or at the commander’s station.

Since the restoration, the Scout Car has been in several shows and convoys and featured in the MVPA Supply Line in 2010.  It has participated in several ARMVPA Red Ball convoys and the 2015 Bankhead Convoy.  This vehicle certainly draws a lot of attention and is fun to drive.  And, for the people up North, it has the very rare heater that works.

Some History:  During the restoration, markings on the front bumpers indicated the vehicle was assigned to the 2nd Armored Division, 82 Recon. Battalion, truck A-2.  The hood numbers were also original as found during the restoration.  The Data Plate is the original and this was a Greek Return in the mid-80’s; rebuild tag on the engine.

The vehicle is complete from the bulkhead forward or has NOS parts installed.  The storage boxes are a reproduction as is the tread plate in the back.  I am not sure about the rear bumper and brackets.  The side armor is original but rewelded due to being demilled.

 

Price: $65000

M-3 37 mm from New Mexico ~SOLD

Featured

This is the reproduction M-3 New Mexico Gun that is ready to fire propane.

The 37 mm Gun M3 was the first dedicated anti-tank gun fielded by United States forces in numbers. Introduced in 1940, it became the standard anti-tank gun of the U.S. infantry with its size enabling it to be pulled by a jeep. However, the continuing improvement of German tanks quickly rendered the 37 mm ineffective and, by 1943, it was being gradually replaced in the European and Mediterranean theaters by the more powerful British-developed 57 mm Gun M1. In the Pacific, where the Japanese tank threat was less significant, the M3 remained in service until the end of the war.

M-3A1 Scout Car With Rear Armor~Sold

Featured

 

This is a classic US Army WW II Wheeled Armored Car. It has the rear armor and supposedly the complete doors.

In 1940 came the much improved M3A1 main production variant. Several modifications were implemented. The hull was lengthened, and to prevent bogging down, an unditching roller was mounted in front of the bumper, which remained a trademark on all the White military vehicles afterward. As armament was also a concern, three machine guns were mounted on skate rails, one forward central heavy M2 50 cal (12.7 mm) and two 30 cals (7.62 mm) at the rear. They could all be fitted on tripods. A radio was fitted, either a SCR506, 508, or 510, with an antenna base at the center of the rear section. Production started in June 1939 and lasted until early 1944. Total figures differ, ranging from 20,856 to 20,918.

The M3A1 became the main road scout in the US Army, serving actively in the Philippines and North Africa. Many were delivered to the Allies, especially the Free French and Russians. However, by 1943 they were seen as obsolete. Critics pointed out the open top compartment, light armor not immune to machine-gun fire, and old-fashion rigid suspension which never allowed them to be fully all-terrain vehicles. Normal duties were rear area road patrols, convoy escort, screening, and, sometimes, advanced scouting parties. All served in various cavalry units throughout the war, but in mid-1942, many were relegated to supply and ambulance work, MP and rear echelon vehicles.

I need to dig it out of the barn to look at it better. Stay tuned, more to come!

PT-76 Amphibious Soviet Light Tank In The USA ~SOLD~

Featured

PT-76 Amphibious Tank

PT-76 Amphibious Tank

The PT-76 is a Soviet amphibious light tank that was introduced in the early 1950s and soon became the standard reconnaissance tank of the Soviet Army and the other Warsaw Pact armed forces. It was widely exported to other friendly states, like India, IraqSyriaNorth Korea, and North Vietnam. Overall, some 25 countries used the PT-76.

The tank’s full name is Swimming Tank–76 (Плавающий ТанкPlavayushchiy Tank, or ПТ-76). 76 stands for the caliber of the main armament: the 76.2 mm D-56T series rifled tank gun.

The PT-76 is used in the reconnaissance and fire-support roles. Its chassis served as the basis for a number of other vehicle designs, many of them amphibious, including the BTR-50 armored personnel carrier, the ZSU-23-4 self-propelled antiaircraft gun, the ASU-85 airborne self-propelled gun and the 2K12 Kub anti-aircraft missile launch vehicle.

T-55 Soviet Main Battle Tank, located in the USA ~SOLD~

Featured

The T-54 and T-55 tanks are a series of Soviet main battle tanks introduced just as the Second World War ended. The first T-54 prototype was completed at Nizhny Tagil by the end of 1945.[2] Initial production ramp up settled for 1947 at Nizhny Tagil, and 1948 for Kharkov were halted and curtailed as many problems were uncovered; the T-34-85 still accounted for 88 percent of production through the 50’s.[2] The T-54 eventually became the main tank for armoured units of the Soviet Army, armies of the Warsaw Pact countries, and many others. T-54s and T-55s have been involved in many of the world’s armed conflicts since the later part of the 20th century.

The T-54/55 series eventually became the most-produced tank in military history. Estimated production numbers for the series range from 86,000 to 100,000. They were replaced by the T-62, T-64, T-72, T-80 and T-90tanks in the Soviet and Russian armies, but remain in use by up to 50 other armies worldwide, some having received sophisticated retrofitting.

During the Cold War, Soviet tanks never directly faced their NATO adversaries in combat in Europe. However, the T-54/55’s first appearance in the West around the period of the 1950s (then the beginning of the Cold War) spurred the United Kingdom to develop a new tank gun, the Royal Ordnance L7, and the United States to develop the M60 Patton.
