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.

1929 Peerless Six-81, Doctors Coupe, CA Car Since New, Barn Find!!, For
Remember the Three P's for Quality motorcars: Pierce Arrow, Packard and...
Peerless!! We recently had the opportunity to buy this fabulous, rust
free, California car since new Peerless Six-81. It features a restoration
that was started in the 1970's and never completed. In 1975 it was
"wrapped-up" and stored until now. How do we know that? Well, the
newspaper used to wrap the parts was the June of 1975 edition of the LA
It has a new correct interior, paint, glass and full mechanical rebuild,
including the brakes, etc. But it needs completing by an active hobbyist
or collector. The cars big six cylinder engine runs well, has terrific oil
pressure, runs cool and sounds like a Packard!! The hydraulic brakes even
hold pressure after all these years!
The car was bought from a widow whose husband had passed away while he was
restoring this quality motorcar. She needed money and sold this Peerless
to a long-time Southern Californian collector back around 1994. The
odometer shows 58,605 miles which is likely the total mileage since new.
Of course this is a very solid rust free car that is missing very few
All of the heavy lifting for the restoration has been completed. The items
left are trim, wiring and lots of other little details. It features the
Club Coupe storage box in the rear seating area and the highly desirable
artillery wheels. It includes the original owners manual that is in very
The Peerless is a very high end motorcar for 1929. It features a well
execute hydraulic brake mechanism, the Peerless made engine, a mechanical
fuel pump and well made hydraulic shocks. This is definitely a peer (well,
Peerless) of Packard and other very expensive motorcars.
We will be having the pleasure of getting the car started over the upcoming
weeks. Stay tuned or contact me at email@example.com or call me
M3 Halftrack driving by
I am driving my halftrack down a rough dirt road at about 25 mph, which is
fast for the halftrack. It is so bumpy that the front window armor fell
down on the way back. Luckily my pistol port was open and I could still
