Hawker Tempest Mark II Project

Featured

Hawker Tempest ExCC.jpg

We received for sale a very nice project: an original Hawker Tempest Mark II in very good shape. The plane is almost complete and in generally good conditions. It was being restored but the owner now would rather sell it and buy something in flying order or near.
The project has the original Bristol Centaurus V engine with it, in good condition, complete, not overhauled. The engine has the exhaust, intake and spark-plugs placed so the inner parts have been protected. Many small parts were already made and some still need to be repaired. 
  
The project is at $210000 with the Bristol engine.
It can be sold with an R-3350 US Navy overhauled (Alameda) still in the can with a factory-new Slyraider Aero Products propeller at $ 280000.

The Hawker Tempest is a British fighter aircraft primarily used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) in the Second World War. The Tempest, originally known as the Typhoon II, was an improved derivative of the Hawker Typhoon, intended to address the Typhoon’s unexpected deterioration in performance at high altitude by replacing its wing with a thinner laminar flow design. Having diverged considerably from the Typhoon, it was chosen to rename the aircraft, Tempest. The Tempest emerged as one of the most powerful fighters of World War II and was the fastest single-engine propeller-driven aircraft of the war at low altitude.[2]

Upon entering service in 1944, the Tempest was used as a low-level interceptor, particularly against the V-1 flying bomb threat, and as a ground attack platform, in which it supported major events such as Operation Market Garden. Later, it successfully targeted the rail infrastructure in Germany and Luftwaffe aircraft on the ground, as well as countering such attacks by German fighters. The Tempest was effective in the low-level interception role, including against newly developed jet-propelled aircraft such as the Messerschmitt Me 262.

The project includes the following:
1 left wing
1 right wing
Rear fuselage 95% restored
Forward fuselage 50% restored
Original engine mount
Bristol Centaurus V engine

Right elevator (new build)

1942 Dodge WC-54 Ambulance

Featured

Wc 54 May 2019

Wc 54 May 2019

The WC54 was designed to replace the WC9, WC18 and the WC27 Truck, 1/2 ton, 4×4 Dodge Ambulance (G505).[2] Based on the 3/4 Ton “Beep” Dodge chassis, it featured a longer wheelbase and adjusted suspension to make its ride softer. The closed sheet-metal body was made by Wayne Body works. It had room for a driver and four to seven patients plus a medic. If the fold-away bunk stretchers were used, four patients could be transported lying down.[2] Because of its intended role, the WC54 featured a large matrix cab heater fitted on the firewall, providing comfort for patients and crew. It was fitted with a foldaway step to its rear to allow easier access for stretcher bearers and injured personnel. Early models featured a stuck out fuel filler cap which was changed to a recessed one in the later model, a modification that was retrofitted to some early model trucks.

From 1942 to 1945, total production of the 3/4-ton Dodge WC-series was some 250,000. Of these, 29,502 were ambulances

1972 M 151a2 Mutt

Ford designed the MUTT – short for Military Unit Tactical Truck – to replace the Willys M38 and M38A1 (the military versions of the Jeep CJ-3A and CJ-5). Unlike those more traditional jeeps, the MUTT uses an independent suspension and unibody construction. While Ford built and designed the M151A2, AM General and Kaiser built a few MUTTs during its 23-year production run, too – the three companies screwed together over 100,000 M151A2s between 1959 and 1982.

From the desert, uncut, no rust, low mileage, and good title. $14,500

Willy's M38a1

Willy’s M38a1

The M38A1 was the first vehicle to feature the round fender design that would later become the distinguishing body style of the CJ-5 (part of the Universal CJ series). Produced first in 1952, following the retirement of the M38 model, the M38-A1 was re-designed as an “stand-alone” improvement, featuring round front fenders, a contoured hood, a two-piece windshield, top mounted windshield wipers, and powered by the new “Hurricane” F-Head engine and Warner T90 transmission. The M38A1 (referred to by Willys as the “MD”), like the M38, had a frame and suspension that was much stronger than its civilian sibling, the CJ-5. With reversed spring shackles, military instruments, and a 24-volt electrical system, the M38A1 was a strong military work horse that was frequently fitted with a machine gun.

Willys M-38A1 Jeep with a solid body runs and drives well, still 24 volts, $9500, with radios and antenna.

The Willys MC or formally the 14-Ton, 4 x 4, Utility Truck M38 was a quarter-ton four-wheel drive military light utility vehicle made by Willys between 1949 and 1952. It replaced the World War II Willys MB and Ford GPW models and had a total production of more than 60,000 units.[1] The M38 was a military version of the then-current civilian Jeep CJ-3A.[1] The M38 differed from the CJ-3A in numerous ways, including a reinforced frame and suspension,[3] waterproof 24-volt electrical system,[1] sealed vent system for the engine, transmission, transfer case, fuel system[1] and brake system.[citation needed] Some M38 jeeps were assigned to the Korean theatre of operations, but the majority of vehicles used in that conflict were rebuilt World War II vintage.

M-548 Amphibious Tracked Cargo Carrier

Featured

M 548 (2)

M 548 (2)

The M548 tracked cargo carrier is an unarmored variant of the M113 APC. This vehicle was developed in 1965. It is a general purpose transport vehicle, intended to carry cargo or ammunition to forward areas. This tracked carrier is no longer in service with the US Army. It was exported to Argentina, Canada, Israel, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, and some other countries. It is still operational with some export operators.

   The vehicle has a payload capacity of 5.45 t. It can carry three passengers in the cab and at least four in the cargo compartment.

   The M548 tracked carrier can be armed with a pintle-mounted 12.7 mm or 7.62 mm machine gun over the cab for self-defense.

   The original M548 supply carrier was powered by Detroit Diesel 6V53 turbocharged diesel engine, developing 210 hp. The engine is mounted behind the cab. The vehicle has a low ground pressure and performs well in rugged terrain. The M548 is fully amphibious. On the water, it is propelled by its tracks. The vehicle can be airlifted by the C-130 Hercules. Its height can be reduced by removing canvas top and folding windscreen.

   A number of the M548 variants were developed and fielded, including minelayer, recovery vehicle, various radar carriers, missile launchers. A stretched version with 6 road wheels was also used.

WW II LTV-4 Amphibious Vehicle in Good condition

Featured

Lvt Buffalo 1

Lvt Buffalo 1

As early as January 1940, Roebling had prepared preliminary sketches of an LVT with a gun turret to provide fire support to the landing waves. The concept languished until June 1941, when USMC recommended the development of an LVT armed with a 37mm gun and three machine guns and armored against 0.50 (12.7mm) machine gun fire. Development was slow and ultimately involved a complete redesign of the LVT, the LVT-2 Buffalo. Armored versions were introduced as well as fire support versions, dubbed Amtanks, which were fitted with turrets from Stuart series light tanks (LVT(A)-1) and Howitzer Motor Carriage M8s (LVT(A)-4).

Among other upgrades were a new powerpack (engine and cooling accessories), also borrowed from the Stuarts, and a rubber “torsilastic” suspension which improved performance on land. After Borg-Warner evaluated the LVT-1, Borg-Warner and FMC began work on new designs. FMC was assisted by faculty from Caltech and the University of California and developed the designs that became the LVT-2 and the LVT(A)-1. Interest in the LVT was enough that the Secretary of the Navy formed the Continued Board for the Development of the Landing Vehicle Tracked on 30 October 1943.

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.

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.

The GAZ-67 and the subsequent GAZ-67B were general purposes four wheel drive Soviet military vehicles built by GAZ starting in 1943. By the end of the war, it was the Soviet equivalent of the Willys Jeep.

The GAZ-67 was a further development of the earlier GAZ-64. The main improvement was a wider track of 1446 mm. It also had a strengthened chassis frame, enlarged fuel tank, and other improvements.

GAZ-67B engine

It was powered by a slightly more powerful 54 hp (40 kW) version of GAZ M1 4-cylinder 3280 cc gasoline motor and had a top speed of 90 km/h (56 mph). Production started on 23 September 1943 (the first serial vehicle produced). From January 1944 it was replaced by the GAZ-67B, which had some mechanical improvements.

The M4 was based on the chassis and drivetrain of the  M3 Light Tank which introduced the trailing idler.[2] One variant was designed to tow the 3-inch or 90 mm anti-aircraft gun, and another was for the 155 mm gun or 8-inch howitzer.[1] The rear compartment carried the gun crew and other equipment and some later variants included a crane to assist with heavier projectiles.[1] Two types of ammunition boxes were used on all models: a 90 mm box with side “tailgates” to access 90 mm shells pigeon-holed in the sides, and a combination box for 155 mm or 8-inch ammunition.
After the war, many types of these tractors were stripped of their military components and used for log skidders and power line construction.

Willys CJ-3A Civilian Jeep

Willys-Overland introduced the CJ-3A model in 1949 to replace the CJ-2A The CJ-3A was part of the Universal CJ series, a model intended for agricultural and industrial applications in the civilian market, an area in which Willys-Overland felt it would be a good fit, as the CJ employed the same “utilitarian” features that gave the MB model great success in WWII. Even so, Willys-Overland realized the value of driver comfort, even in a “work” vehicles such as the CJ. Updates in the new CJ-3A, while relatively minor, included increased leg room,  thicker cushions and more headroom, and the addition of 2-3/8” to the overall height (with windshield up). The rear wheel well was shortened and the driver’s seat was moved toward the rear of the vehicle, shortening the deck.
