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.
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.

At first glance, this car looks like an armored limousine, with inch-thick
glass and carefully-drilled gun ports. On closer examination, however, it
gets more and more curious.
The Cadillac build records call it "Fltwd Limo," body style 6275, number
356, and indicate it was ordered by the Chicago branch on February 21,
1935. Painted Thessalon Green, it had black leather in the front
compartment and Wiese brown vogue weave broadcloth in the rear. Fitted with
six wire wheels, two of them in fender wells, it had a radio in the rear
compartment and a flexible steering wheel. There is a further notation
about "Special Fleetwood Body Order 310," the details of which are lost to
The online Cadillac Data Base, a meticulous compilation by historian Yann
Saunders, gives production figures for Style 6275 as nine in 1934 and just
seven in 1935, exclusive of those given suffixes as sedans, formal
limousines or limousines with increased headroom. The bodies were the same
as the flat-windshield limousine Style 6075, whose Fisher body tags they

Barn find 1927 Buick & 1941 Hudson- Reseda, California
In June of 2010 I was asked to help evaluate and uncover a rather unique
group of classic cars; one of which had be sitting since just after World
War 2. In fact there was an original WW2 Navy uniform still sitting in the
back seat. More rare cars came of hiding that fortuitous day. I was lucky
enough to recover and bring home a few of these time-forgotten relics.
