Carryall_left_side.jpg

Hey Lloyd:

Well, I don't need much encouragement to put up a few more pics from that photo session about 5 years ago. Here are a few more.

I need to take some better pics and get some inside shots. It has a red oak floor in the rear as per the original spec. Not a spot of bondo or filler, all lead and metal. It won first place in the 3/4 ton class at the MVPA Show in Memphis a few years back, the only time I have ever put it into a show.

I will have to dig out the old pics of it (pre-digital when we used something called film). It was rescued from a field in the country, shot full of holes, rusted to hell and gone, and with a tree growing through the engine compartment. Wrong engine and tranny, seats gone, a real basket case.

Regards,
Charlie

I also have a WC51,and a '44 MB,too. I'm currently working on a WC4 1/2 ton Dodge. For something a bit more uncommon,here is one of my two BSA WD M20 motorcycles. This one is a 1944,the other is, of course,identical,but in a desert sand paint scheme.

Lloyd - I have the support of my two sons so its is 3 vs. 1. Now I just need to find the one... BTW I was once told that it can be better to buy one that has been professionally restored to save on some of the headaches... I know my BOSS would agree...



Are there any websites I should be watching to keep up on this part of the hobby?

So what sort of Vehicle are you after?

A Jeep or a Dodge WC are ideal starter vehicles...have you ascertained that yet John ?

Tell the boss.."she has made the right desiscion".......

Muddy_Jeep__1.jpg Muddy_Jeep__2.jpg Hi Lloyd and everyone else in this post. Here are photos of my Ford GPW Jeep, photos taken in January and theres snow on the engine hood etc. I love using them for what they were intended. At one show a veteran of the Burma campaign was looking at my Jeep with his son around 30 years of age, the son wandered off and said dad come and look at this Jeep over here it looks like it just left the factory. Within five minutes the veteran was back and stood with weepy eyes and said ' If I close my eyes and remember, this is how we had them in the Burma jungle'. He then related a good memory to me, they didn't have any water bowsers, so they used ordinary Jeep trailers. Jeep trailers were built water-tight to float, so they used that idea in reverse and filled them with water, they then tied the canvas over the top to stop water spillage and off down the jungle trails they went. ( Lewis )

My 1944 Willys MB.

It's never been restored, just maintained for it's whole life. I'm the 3rd civilian owner, after it was used by the Navy at Bremerton, WA as a radio Jeep.

I'm usually at the Modeler's Forum, but I came across this vehicle on Rte 611N in Tannersville PA, and I had to take some pics and share them. It looks like it could use a little restoration but it was in front of an auto repair shop so who knows if its for sale. I hope you like it.

M37, our unit in Vietnam had one with a 283 chevy from a M114. Dual exhaust, " Tops" vehicle, would do about 70! Unsure of what happened to it when we stood down. Problems with them are differentals, way to slow for driving around town.
