1959 Ferret armored scout car

Featured

 

The Ferret was developed in 1949 as a result of a British Army requirement issued in 1947. ‘Light reconnaissance cars’ existed in during the Second World War, notably the Daimler Reconnaissance Scout Car.

Given its experience with the successful “Dingo” (6,626 produced and one of two British AFVs produced throughout WWII) Daimler was awarded a development contract in October 1948, and in June 1950 the first prototype of the Car, Scout, 4×4, Liaison (Ferret) Mark 1 was delivered.

Given the designation FV 701(C) it was one of several versions but the one that most closely resembled the original Daimler scout cars, and represented the basic model Ferret. This shared many similar design features with the Dingo, notably the H form drive train in which a central differential eliminates loss of traction due to wheel-slip, and parallel drive shafts considerably reduced the height of the vehicle (roughly equivalent to that of a tracked AFV), considerably reducing the vehicle’s visual signature over conventional armoured car designs.[1]

Like the Daimler scout car the Ferret suspension consisted of pairs of transverse links and single coil springs, the wheels driven by Tracta constant-velocity joints, but the Ferret benefited from epicyclic reduction gears that reduced transmission torque loads, essential given the more powerful six cylinder 4.26 liter water-cooled Rolls Royce B.60 petrol engine. Connected by a fluid coupling to a pre-selector five-speed epicyclic gearbox, all gears being available in reverse, in its original form the Ferret this installation produced 116 bhp at 3,300 rpm and 129 bhp at 3,750 in its final form.

This improved power-to-weight ratio, longer wheelbase (2.29 m (7.5 ft) as compared with the Dingo’s 1.98 meters (6.5 feet)) and the fitting of larger 9.00 x 16 run flat tires both increased speed and mobility over broken ground.

When compared with the Daimler Dingo and Canadian Ford Lynx, the Ferret featured a larger fighting compartment, directly mounted to the hull (a feature that made the Ferret much noisier than Dingo, which lacked a full monocoque body).

Constructed of 6–16 mm (0.24–0.63 in) steel plate protecting the crew from shell splinters at most angles except directly overhead, as the basic vehicle was open-topped and unarmed, with the exception of six forward-firing grenade launchers fitted to the hull over the front wheels (normally carrying smoke grenades), a feature found on all subsequent marks and models.

 

Asking $39500.00.

1971 US Marine Corps Gama Goat M-561 M-792 6×6 Truck~SOLD~

Featured

The Gama Goat was a six-wheel-drive semi-amphibious off-road vehicle originally developed for use by the US military in the Vietnam War. The ‘Goat used an articulated chassis so that from distance it appears to be a four-wheel drive vehicle pulling a two-wheel trailer, but it is a single six-wheel vehicle with a four-wheel steering arrangement with the front and rear wheels turning in opposite directions. It was famous for its ability to travel over exceptionally rough and muddy terrain.

The vehicle’s nickname came from two sources; “Gama” from the name of the inventor of its powered articulated joint, Roger Gamaunt, and “Goat” for its mountain goat-like off-road ability. Its military designation was M561, 6×6 tactical 1¼-ton truck. There was also an ambulance version known as the M792. The ‘Goat’ is prized among military vehicle collectors because it is so unusual and in short supply. The vehicle was replaced by a variety of Commercial Utility Cargo Vehicles (CUCV) and ‘Humvees‘ (HMMWV)

This gamma goat is the ambulance model m792 not the standard model m561 and also the USMC model of which only 1758 were built

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

1942 White Scout Car

 

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

1954 Dodge M37

1954 Dodge M37

1954 Dodge M37 for sale. Engine runs well, 7400 original miles. engine and drive train clean and solid, radiator in super condition, brakes and lights need work. All gauges are working, data plates in place. The fuel tank and lines appear to be in immaculate condition. The carburetor and fuel pump should be rebuilt with a kit as should the brake master cylinder. Seat canvas and foam are deteriorated, but the springs and wood base are intact. All of the parts for the bows and troop seats are present, but the wood is dry from the summer sun and should be replaced. The vehicle is not titled and will be sold on a bill of sale. The original OD paint has been preserved under a light coat of older OD paint which cleans off easily as oxidation has made it easy to remove, but it has preserved the original finish. This would probably not need a frame off restoration, only minor mechanical work on brakes and lights, and one could remove the lighter over paint revealing the original finish. Look at the star on the passenger door and you can see where that was cleaned with 15 minuted of effort.

1942 Dodge MASH Ambulance WC-27 US Army ~SOLD~

BACK ON THE MARKET FOR ONLY A SHORT TIME~!

WC-27 Ambulance

WC-27 Ambulance

This ambulance is in the West Texas desert and it never had rust on it. Other than a scratch, it has been well cared for and serviced.

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

Military SEE (small emplacement excavator)

Military SEE tractor (small emplacement excavator) This was made by the Freightliner corporation for Mercedes-Benz. These are based on the same model as the 419 Unimog. It was built in 1990 and was completely overhauled in 01-2007. It shows 9 miles and 4 hours. This unit has been checked out in our shop by undergoing a service checklist. All fluids have been checked, replaced, topped off as needed. These unique pieces can do a variety of jobs in one compact unit. On the front of the truck is a front end loader bucket with teeth for moving materials and loading trucks. It is rated at .75 cubic yards, the lift height is 98″ it will lift 3,300lbs, and the breakout force is 6,000lbs. On the rear is a Case backhoe attachment with many uses. It can dig up to 14′ deep with a reach of over 17′. It has a 10,000lbs breakout force. You can dismount the front end loader and the backhoe making a small very agile truck. The truck also has aux. hydraulics for running a variety of tools like a jack hammer, rock drill, impact, chainsaw, and all other kinds of attachments. The Mercedes 6 cylinder inline 346 cubic inch diesel runs strong and is rated at 110 hp. Behind that is a 16-speed transmission for all kinds of gear speeds. Top speed rated by the military is 50mph, but it’s not safe to go that fast if it will with all the attachments on. 35-40 mph is a safe top speed with the attachments on or you can go 45-50 mph with them off. It also has disc brakes. The 4×4 system works fine, the front and rear differential will lock together providing true 4 wheel drive. The truck is sitting on Michelin like new XL’s 12.5-20 tires. The truck has new military spec batteries in it and is ready to go. All major functions have been tested and work properly. The interior of this truck is in good condition. The truck has a PTO for the hydraulic pump only, no extra PTO is at the rear of the truck. It has hydraulic power to the rear of the truck also when the backhoe is removed.
