Oregon Barn find Halftrack Runs!

This includes photos of all of my halftracks including my barn find, red one, which I got running last week. All are model M2A1 with the yellow one being an Autocar. The green and red halftracks were both built by White. All haftracks originally had a un-ditching roller. The rollers on the yellow and red halftracks were removed and replaced with winches. The red one has the correct winch bumper and the yellow one was made up.

1925 Indiana Truck Story, from barn find to show truck
This project started in 1980 and has lasted over 32 years to get to this point. Parts were almost impossible to find and with no pattern it was not possible to make anything. I got very lucky and found everything over the years to restore this truck back to its factory original condition right down to the color of each part. All the sheet metal is original to this truck and had no rust through so the body work was done without the use of bondo or lead. The wood in the cab and doors is also original to this truck but the bed was built from factory drawings and another truck with the same type bed. All hardware for the bed had to be hand made. This truck is as close you will ever see to the way it way looked in 1925 when it left the factory.
