Well, someone has to break in the new forum! :D

A friend of mine is selling a near-mint condition Deuce and a Half military truck.
He asked for my help so I put together a simple page and told him I'd post it here. If you like this type of vehicle this one is a nice one!
Information and pictures can be found at this website:

If I had a place to park it I'd buy it. I've always wanted one.

You can park it in front of my house. There's no street cleaning and I'll move it every 3 days so it doesn't get towed :D

Wow, that would be a lot of fun! Somehow I don't think my wife would agree with that however. One question about it, you say it has a historical plate on it. What year was it manufactured? It should be located on a metal plate attached to the dash board on the passenger side.

What year is this AM General ?

I have a truck tractor in the same weight class as this little truck.

Mine is a M275 and also have a 5 ton cargo truck M54A2 WOW.

this looks to be a M35A1 but I could be wrong there should be a data plate just above the glove box. that has other information you might suggest he add to the website. also If he is a MVPA member you might suggest he post this add in the club paper called SUPPLY LINE. and on the MVPA website.

That is NICE! I can't imagine the look on people's faces if you drive by in one of those. Been in the market for a car/truck/whatever. That won't fit in my garage though :(

Not really.. I mean you'd just park on top of those little civics. And just to keep the hippies happy, you can run biodiesel, or veggie oil.

And probably run it without doing any major conversion work! :rolleyes: Those engines seem to run on almost anything. (Diesel, Kerosene, gasoling, av-gas, and I want to say our FM even had provisions for JP4).

I used to drive one when I was enlisted and they are a blast. It took me 15 seconds to send to my wife with the please,please,please email. Where is it located? I'd love to go see it. I'll shoot him an email too.

I think it's still in the West San Fernando Valley area but he may have moved it up to Thousand Oaks. I'll pass him the word to check his email, he's not the most computer focused person which is why I'm doing this for him. ;)


I'll also pass on to him how to find the date of manufacture, that will help a lot.

You wont find parts for a UNI-MOG as easy as you will for a M series truck.

Also Kest the MVPA website and paper supply line is a great way to sell M series trucks, I sold 5 of them that way in the last 10 years.

It's San Francisco. Truffle oil would do nicely:D

Kes,

Its funny you should say that. A neighbor of mine made off with a bunch of rigging from my little sport sailboat and continues to move it around. An office mate reminded me of that and said I should switch out my boat for the 'Duece and put a sign on it that says, "move this!"

Got the email and the number btw.

It would be a '72 or newer model, the 1967 model series has low exhaust that exits between the right side duals.

Not sure if your aware but M series trucks don't have a key switch and or even door locks only a Battery switch and a start button. as its most likely a 5 speed transmission it would not be too hard to get going unless you installed a hidden battery disconnect. or took the connector cable between the batteries every time you parked it.

A padlock is also a common thing on M series trucks from the door jam up and around the steering wheel is how its usually done.

The correct government locks are sold on e bay every so often.

mine didn't. It came out just behind the body on the passenger side. Mine had a army depot overhaul in 1990 however.

How much for a M998 hood and driver door ?

And a Rear axle for a M113, a Steel hardtop for a M52A2 with the hole already rut out for the ring mount would be great.

I have no desire to destroy its current hardtop as its painted to match the rest of the truck.

Need the frame extenders for a M818 and the PTO to convert from WOW to WW.

Quick story about my first time driving a Deuce that always makes me laugh when I remember it....:D

I got called in the middle of the night to go help with a flood relief effort....Well, I show up and they ask if I have a Deuce license. I say no (I was a new 11B)...they tell me I will in a minute...lol. So the Sgt. types me up a license while I help load the deuce. He hands it to me and sends me on a 5 hour trip driving a deuce by myself in a convoy.

The problem was this.....I left at like 1 AM and it dark and I didn't have a flashlight with me. Every time I was try shifting gears (in a typical car H- pattern) the engine would bog down and I had a heck of a time accelerating from stop lights and on freeway onramps. and down shifting didn't help much either.

Well, finally the sun started coming up and I could see the plate on the dash with the shift pattern on it.....ooops. Then I knew what I had done wrong....that H-pattern wasn't quite standard...lol.

Back to the top for a reduced price!

My friend has decided to lower the price in order to find a new home for this, he's going out of State soon for a job and wants to sell this before leaving so he's dropped the price by almost a third.
Check the link for info and the new price!!
