    Chrysler Defense HMMWV Prototype

    I only took it out one time and that was to the Anza Borrego Desert for a Dodge rally. Peterson's off road magazine was there and has a photo or two of it in the magazine. It was about 15 years or so ago.

    Chrysler Defense HMMWV Prototype

    Confirm AM General... I've seen one photo of one that looked just like mine. Except that the fuel cap was located behind the drivers seat on the outside fender and it had Washington plates on it. I printed that picture out hoping to one day have someone run the plates for me. Other than that...

    Chrysler Defense HMMWV Prototype

    I always get a little freaked out talking about how I got it. As you all know it was pretty much impossible to get the original hmmwv back in the day. You could buy em in pieces from the salvage yards. And put them back together but the military would never sell a whole one. I've done a lot of...

    Chrysler Defense HMMWV Prototype

    Okay my understanding goes as this. In 1978 the military put out a request for a new type of vehicle to replace the Jeep. Aka the HMMWV There were three bidders on contract. AM General, Teledyne, and Chrysler defense. From those 3 bidders they each developed 3 test vehicles each. Those 9...

    Nope it came with a Chrysler 360 gasoline v8 I did hear that the other two have the diesel but I've never been able to verify that. If you look at the cowling on the hood you can see that it is offset. I believe that this was done to accommodate the diesel engine. Mine is original it never had...

    Chrysler Defense HMMWV Prototype

    It was built back in 1979 for the HMMWV contract. It's my understanding that there were nine protype vehicles submitted. 3 from AM General 3 From Teledyne and 3 from Chrysler defense. The door tag says EMT PRO PV1 I'm assuming that means experimental military transport Prototype Prototype vehicle 1

    I hate the Smell of Maple Syrup

    Heater seems to work fine... I'm just having a hard time trying to roll the windows up. BTW back in the day, They used to make us take the tops off of the jeeps when doing training down range. Problem was it was winter in Colorado. I solved that issue by placing a 1" hose into the heater vent...
