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.

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~SOLD

Featured

~For Sale By Owner ~

Contact Tom at t.masch@aol.com ~SOLD

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.

Asking price $12,000

BRDM-2

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.

Here in Europe, we have a 1942 T-34 from the WW2 with documents, it’s demilitarized and in good working condition.

The T-34 was a Soviet medium tank that had a profound and lasting effect on the field of tank design. Although its armor and armament were surpassed later in the war, it has been often credited as the most effective, efficient and influential tank design of the Second World War.

1941 Ford GP ~SOLD~

1941-Ford-GP

This is a first series GP: tub 9181, frame *9958, and engine *8835*. It
is listed on the national registry for GP’s
The restoration of GP 9181 was completed in 2015. This restoration
consisted of
a frame off approach with all rust and body filler removed from the tub.
The only panels deemed unable to be restored were the tool bin interiors.
Newly manufactured tool bin interiors were obtained from Simon Allen of
Australia and welded into place. The tub, frame, and engine block were
all stripped, primed, and painted in the correct drab paint supplied by
Paul Viens of TM9 Ordnance. Not reproductions or civilian modified
pieces.
Wiring, gas line, brake lines, etc.. were replaced as well. Rear end,
front end, transfer case, transmission, front knuckles, etc… were all
serviced
The engine was checked and had good compression in all cylinders. Because
it had good compression, burned no oil, and had appropriate power, it was
felt an engine rebuild was not in order.
9181 Components that were rebuilt included:
Holley 947D carburetor
Wheel cylinders
Starter
Generator
Voltage regulator
Solenoid
Distributer

The good aspects of 9181 are that it is a nearly complete GP with many of
the very hard to find parts including the correct carburetor, correct
distributor, air cleaner, air horn, combat rims, vintage tires, etc… It
is a running and driving example that is driven in car show/parades. The
paint is close to 100% and it is a very clean example with less than 50
miles on it since the restoration. It recently placed first in class,
president’s choice, and best in show at the MVPA Military Vehicle Rally in
Orlando, Fl ( Feb 26-28, 2016).

The less than good aspects include:
It has a reproduction horn. The speedometer is the 0-60mph rather than
the 0-100mph speedometer ( a highly contested subject among GP purists).
Some of the parts were mistakenly painted the wrong color most noticeably
the radiator painted black rather than OD green.
It still has some minor wiring needs including wiring the horn and wiring
the fuel gauge. The headlights and combat lights are dim and would likely
need replacing if it is driving at night. I have left them alone
because the bulbs are wartime dated. It does have a top but no side
curtains.
Some welding was required to fill in rust holes around the side curtain
snaps so we opted to fill all of the holes in and re-drill in the future.
It has not been re-drilled for the snaps.
