    Converto dump trailer Henderson, NC to VT

    I have a little converto dump trailer sitting at a friend of a member’s place in Henderson, NC. It’s probably around 75 years old so I’d guess it should be hauled and not towed. I’m looking to get it brought north if anyone has room for it at some point. The long hitch could be cut off to...

    Thank you to Dead pilot

    Dead pilot helped me out big time with some wrecker parts I needed for one of my projects. He drove and picked the stuff up, then disassembled it all, boxed it up, and then shipped it to me. I’m sure it was a hassle and took a fair amount of time. I’m glad there are people like Jason in the...

    New m108 Crane Truck Project

    This 1953 Studebaker needs a little bit of work, and it's missing a lot of parts. I'll get a better idea of the extent of the project once it's in the yard, but if it does get fixed up there won't be a whole lot of original parts on it other than maybe the crane, frame, and springs. All of the...

    Oilboard Stencils (.25, .5, .75, 1, 1.75 inch tall characters)

    I'm selling oilboard stencils for various MVs. These can be used multiple times and are often used by the military to mark things like tire pressures, warnings, etc. on vehicles. I can make stencils with 0.25", 0.5", 0.75", 1", and 1.75" tall characters. If you don't see what you want listed...

    m35a2 wheel spacers?

    I really don't think these are actually m35 wheel spacers but they're pretty similar to a wheel spacer. The problem I see is that they'll fit over a deuce hub and the outer lugnuts so I'm guessing they're probably for some other application. The number stamped on them is 1092988 which I can't...

    1951 m104 Trailer

    Here's one you don't see too often, a 1.5 ton m104 trailer. It's in pretty good shape and has the original cargo body with front gate, landing leg, and data tag. It has m105 racks on it now but I have some of the Canadian m104 side racks to use with it, I'll just need to find the front and...

    Air Force Tarmac Trailers

    I picked up a trailer today that I strongly suspect is a USAF trailer for moving either equipment or munitions around a paved area. I'm guessing it originally had an axle in the front like a hay wagon but that was cut off and a regular tongue welded on, probably by a fire department. I'm sure...

    Gun Ring Parts ID

    I picked up some gun ring parts the other day but it's a pieced together setup. It's the older style ring, m49 I think. I guess it uses a specific cradle that fits the thinner socket on the skate. Anyone know if there is an adapter to make it work with a regular long pintle? It came with a...

    Need a small winch picked up in Plainfield, CT

    Is there anyone close to Plainfield, CT that could pick up this tiny winch for me? It's not big at all, that's 1/2 cable on it. Just need to get it moved from where it's at, I'm in no rush to have it at all. It's in the eastern part of CT, not far from the RI border. UPDATE: I no longer...

    xm389 trailer (1 ton trailer for m37)

    A few years back at a forestry yard up in Maine I noticed a bare trailer frame much like an m101 but built a little heavier with the model being an xm389. After a little research I found a thread by steelandcanvas about a trailer his club had on loan to them, which had the boxes on the frame...

    New to me m59 dump truck...

    Well... I bought this m59 today. Needs some work here and there, but definitely worth saving. The toolbox isn't on the truck but the previous owner says he has it. One of the quarter fenders is there but not on the truck, he may have the other as well. The bad thing is the cab protector is...

    Building an xm381 style bobber

    Well... I haven't seen one of these done yet that looks like the original with the m34 style bed, so I guess I'll give it a shot. The "victim": Yes I'm aware an m36 is a rare truck compared to an m35 (I'm sure I'll hear about it anyway). According to the paperwork it has had 180 miles put on...

    I've joined the G749 club...

    After making a deal with an SS member I'm the owner of a couple m135s. The orange truck is very nice as far as sheet metal goes, we'll see on the mechanicals once I get it back to the shop. The other truck isn't as nice but not too bad either. I've already got enough projects to get done but...

    The VTCS m756a2 Pipeline Truck

    This morning a 1970 m756a2 showed up at the yard. My friend George at Vermont Commercial Salvage bought this truck from DRMO back in the 1990s, he sold it a few years later but last year he bought it back. Rounder's Logistics handled getting it trucked it up from NC and now it's back at the...

    Mystery HMMWV Trailer

    I just won the auction for an odd HMMWV trailer. To me it looks like an early version of the m1101/m1102. Here's what the listing said about it: 1975 Silver Eagle LWHMTC 1.5-Ton Cargo Trailer. Repairs may be required. The year doesn't sound right and a search for LWHMTC didn't find any...

    Picked up an R2 crash truck today...

    My brother found an R2 listed for sale this morning for a good price, so after a few hours of driving we bought it! It looks to be in decent shape, it needs work but it's definitely worth saving. I'll take a closer look at it tomorrow and post some more pictures.

    Evil Dr. Porkchop's M-Gator Restoration

    Yesterday my brother and I road tripped over to Fort Drum to pick up the M-Gator I won a couple weeks ago. The recovery went well except for a wheel bearing failure about 60 miles from Drum, so we 3-wheeled the rest of trip. I paid a little more than I was hoping to, but I wanted one and 200...
