MILITARY VEHICLE HISTORY IF KNOWN:
We found both the original OG green (U.S.Army) and Dark Blue (U.S.Air Force) Paint on this truck when we brought it back in August 2006.The truck had been configured for use in Germany at some time in its life, but this vehicle ended its military life in England in the early 1980ís when it was sold as surplus from the U.S Air Force .Since acquiring the truck from its previous owner we commenced a frame up restoration which took four years to complete.  The vehicle has been restored to original condition as when it rolled of the factory floor in 1952. We chose to finish the truck as a United States Marine Corps variation, which included adding a full deep water fording kit and the distinctive rear light/shackle mounts on the rear. The Vehicle is marked as a USMC vehicle from the 1st Marine Division in the early to mid 1960ís.
