We found this WW II Army Air Corps 4×4 Snow Blower in the Wyoming desert. It has rare Marmon Herrington 4×4 axles. Restore to original or make a 1942 4×4 Ford Pickup.
Designed by a partnership under military auspices of Sparkman & Stephens and General Motors Corporation (GMC), the DUKW was used for the transportation of goods and troops over land and water. Excelling at approaching and crossing beaches in amphibious warfare attacks. Surviving DUKWs have since found popularity as tourist craft in marine environments.
This partially restored project looks very nice.
Ford GTB Bomb Service Truck
This is a running GTB with the bomb hoist
In good condition $6600.
Dimensionally, the Ford GTB proved a larger vehicle than the world-renown JEEP or the 3/4-ton Dodge “Power Wagon” series but was of a much more compact size when compared to the war-winning “Deuce and- a-Half” transports. Nearly all GTB vehicles were affixed with an optional front-mounted winch (Braden or Gar Wood marks) with a 10,000lb rating. With excellent ground clearance, the GTB could manage water sources and depressions 25 inches deep. The open-air nature of the cockpit could be minimally protected against the elements by the raising of the forward windshield and erection of a canvas top. The rear area could be outfitted with folding seats for infantry and similarly see a canvas top erected for some protection against sun and rain.
This 1953-56 Dodge M56 R2 is a former Air Force crash truck. Similar to the more familiar M37 but quite a bit rarer, there were only 308 of these built and of this total, only 221 had the Braden winch on the front. Only a handful of the units produced still exist. Mechanically speaking, these trucks are identical to their more common M37 cousins, but with a longer wheelbase–126″ vs. 112. Fitted with a 10,000lb Braden winch, most were equipped with a grappling hook to tow wreckage. Built by Dodge with just the cowl and nose installed, the Oneida Products Corporation of Canastota, New York built the rear body. This truck is number 295 of the 308 produced, which matches up with the date of manufacture and delivery (July 27, 1956). The truck and chassis were built in 1953 but apparently it did not go to Oneida for final outfitting until 1956. The motor is a 230ci L-head six with a 4-speed 4wd manual transmission, a 2-speed transfer case, and axles with 5.83:1 gear. These trucks were built to save the lives of pilots of the U.S. Air Force.
The truck has a 24-volt system with the very hard to find Home lite PTO driven generator (230 volts 3 phase 80 cycle), generator controls and the always missing Engine Speed Governor for the generator (it does work).
This truck was nicely restored by the previous owner and I have over $12,000 in receipts for work completed on truck…mostly mechanical. The paint and graphics on truck are a couple of years old and looks very nice for use in military equipment shows or parades.
Clear Title. No Rust. Complete fuel system re-build, NOS fuel pump, fuel tank removed and relined, new lines, new 24v plugs and wires, new switches and gauges, new axle seals, new starter, fuel senders, new coil and ignition system, new brakes, new master cylinders, new brake lines, New upholstery, new axle bearings. It comes with two very hard to find Fire Axes, two fire suits, stretcher and miscellaneous spare parts, several factory manuals, and enlarged wiring diagrams.
This is a solid, but not very original Weapons Carrier. It would be great for reenactments and parades, but not for shows.
Running gear look good with a two speed transfer case. The engine turns over, but do not know if it will run.
$5500, with title. ~SOLD~
Six prototypes of the vehicle were produced in early-to-mid 1950 based on the WC series Dodge vehicles used in World War II, with the first pre-production pilot vehicle rolling off the assembly line on 14 December 1950. Many of the components on the M37 are similar or identical to the World War II vehicle and many deficiencies of the previous series were corrected in the M37. Notably, a conventional pickup truck style bed replaced the platform on the World War II vehicle, simplifying production.
The WC54 was designed to replace the WC9, WC18 and the WC27 Truck, 1/2 ton, 4×4 Dodge Ambulance (G505). 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. 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
Here is some information on the 1944 WC-56 Command Car unfinished project. This WC-56 when to Europe during WW II and was sold to the Swiss Army after the war. Since the Swiss took good care of it, there is no significant rust of damage. The wartime engine is stuck, but It comes with an extra rebuilt Chrysler 230 ci engine. The transmission, transfer case, and drive train seem to be in good condition. It comes with five good combat wheels and original seat cushions. The steering, gas tank, tailgate, brake system are intact. The price is $19,500 and it comes with a good title and extra parts. Contact John for more
