My latest restoration: 1942 Wheeled Litter Carrier

Recommended Posts

So I picked this up back in April. It was a diamond in the rough for sure. Painted yellow, missing tires, wheel bearings, and all of the parts above the leaf springs. And the kick stand was rusted through in the center. I did all of the work myself. Even found that the correct tires were still available from a company who made these carts during WW2. I'm very please with how it came out.

Nice work bringing it back.

I can say it was really rough with many layers of paint. Robin beat me to buying it at the show

I just found one on eBay and it's in beautiful shape. Everything was original and I was lucky it was all complete. You did a great restoration! I will leave mine original I think, as all the paint is there and no rust. It's a great piece and we're both lucky to own one!
