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.
Massive Barn Find in Portugal
I've tried to identify most of the 180 cars found locked away in here, can
anyone recognise any others? I will add them to the video along with
corrections if confirmed 100%. What is that 2nd Formula race car?
1945 White M2A1 Halftrack on GovLiquidation.com
http://www.GovLiquidation.com - This 1945 White M2A1 Halftrack has been
sold. It went for 41% off the estimated original retail price!
This authentic military vehicle started easily and ran well. It appeared to
be mostly in its original condition and had 1945 dated tracks in
serviceable condition. The transmission and transfer case shifted easily,
the clutch and brakes seemed to be good. The steering was tight. It had
nearly new tires.
It did not have the original fuel tank and was missing the instruments.
There was no glass, no manuals, no hour meter, and the enclosed cabin was
not climate controlled. It had an electric start, but no ignition key.
The 147hp White inline 6 cylinder water cooled gas engine had a 20 gallon
fuel capacity. The max speed was 40 MPH and the range was 175 miles. The
armor was .25 inches thick.
This Halftrack was nearly rust free underneath and was in remarkably good
condition for its age. This type of military vehicle can be registered to
drive on the road and there were some spare parts available. It was located
in Rancho Cordova, CA.
