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.

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.

1945 White M2 Half track cruising the yard in Benton City WA.avi
John bought this 1945 White Half track from a local wheat farmer off
HorseHeaven Road near the Tri-cities about 7 years ago (2003). John gave
us rides around his yard which just happens to be a perfect track to check
out this vintage war machine. THANKS John!!! Don't worry about denting
the hood or the doors, they are 1/4 steel.
