Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

I have a couple of Dodge SWB W150ís. I never really noticed these when they were new but theyíve grown on me that last 5 years or so. Had this one shipped here in 2019 and havenít done anything to it until the last couple of months when I had a buddy do his best to buff the tired paint and I put some new tires on it. Itís a 1989 and has a fuel injected 360, SM465 (I think...has a creeper gear so assuming) manual trans. Itís not perfect by any stretch but people seem to like it since Iíve had it out a couple days now.

Speedo doesnít work, the suspension is stiff and bouncy at the same time so gonna try shocks first, and I think I need to toe it in a little. Other than that not much to do other than cosmetic which always seems to come last although the LED headlights are getting swapped ASAP.

Now that Iíve driven two of them I can say Dodges of this era ride rougher that similar vintage GM leaf sprung trucks. May need some custom springs if shocks donít smooth it out.

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

A rare vintage and extremely capable 4x4. Not mine! My neighbors hate me enough without that parked out front.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1943-white-m2a1/


This truck was built by the White Motor Company in 1943 as an M2 half-track and was converted to M2A1 specification by the US Army Ordnance Department during World War II. It is finished in olive drab over tan canvas upholstery, and power is sent to both axles via a 386ci White 160AX gasoline inline-six paired with a non-synchronized four-speed manual transmission and a dual-range transfer case. Features include folding window armor, a machine gun mount, and troop seating for 10. This M2A1 was acquired by the owning dealer in 2021 and is now offered by the seller on their behalf in Los Angeles, California, with an ammo box and a California title listing it as a 1944 White.

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

I think your neighbors would rather "see" that sitting at your house than "hear" it going down the road . Cool truck. When I was a kid those were my favorite military vehicles. Too cool

Sorry for the crappy pictures. A local guy is into the Oshkosh trucks pretty deep. There's nowhere to pull over so I grabbed a few shots from the road

As kids we had a WWII style 6X6 in the backyard to play on and once we found a half-track outside of town that had been converted to a boom truck. One day we clmbed the fence to get a better look. As we were checking it out a woman came out ot the house and yelled at us to "GET". She then turned her dog loose. With an 1/8 mile head start we beat the dog to the fence line. Needless to say we never went back.

Probably not very likely but those could be Idaho department of transportation trucks. They used to paint all their vehicles yellow with black hoods. I even remember seeing their dozers and road graders (Hood behind the cab ) painted that way.

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

You were gettin' alright!

I went by that place with the Oshkosh trucks and all that is totally gone. All cleaned up but for a forklift in front of the doors. It was a fabrication shop, I think construction related, and they sold snow plows and flatbeds. I never saw a realtor sign. Maybe they moved or I guess they went out

Heavy stuff

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

I came across this one and with the half-track and 6x6's mentioned earlier it seemed appropriate. This is not my Jeep.

https://portland.craigslist.org/clc/...390914671.html

Selling a icon in the nw jeep world.
This custom 6x6 needs a new home.
V6 Jeep motor, turbo 400 transmission. Warn hubs, winch, new tires, new interior too.
Bobcat tracks can be added. Off road use only.
Trailer not included.
1 of a kind
Title present

That first one is interesting. I wonder if it was based on a Gladiator or a Wagoneer? I would like to see how that roof line blends into the box.

Here is another somewhat rare Jeep. The Thriftside. I really like how it has the earlier Willy's look to the box.

Me too. I dig those Thriftsides. They look more like a Willys with that bed

The newer style was pretty cool, too

I wanted a Honcho but my dad said the colors would ruin hunting. The deer would be scared away!! I believed him.... Gullible or an idiot, I'm not sure.....

Re: Vintage 4wd Pictures:Other Makes

I never had much luck hunting from my truck

That green one is a '79 with the early grille swapped in. I always wanted to do that if I got one. My brother-in-law back when he was my friend *() had a bright blue Honcho wide bed in '78. I could see through the grille the old sheet metal was behind there.


* Still my friend. I meant years before my little sister grew up and they met

I probably already showed these or you all are getting sick of J-series Jeeps. But don't complain or I might shut this thread down

I'll never complain. My dad was into the old Willys trucks and loved his Wagoneers too.

The man who founded the oil and gas company I work for, operated a Half track during the war. He had permanent scars on his back for the shell casings coming off the .50 cal in the back and going down between his skin and service uniform. Later in life when he had adequate funds he found a couple half tracks. He had the guys in the shop build 1 out of them. We still keep it around today for parades and such. I looked after it for a few years. Itís cool to drive around and gets a lot of attention. The guys who drove these things in real combat are true heroís, thatís all I can say. They are not that easy to drive in real life.

Ours still has all the original running gear including the big ole white motors 6 cylinder.
