Who/what is correct? Guess I could call Brent Mullins. Lets see what happens here first though, don't...

    WC9, 18 or 27

    Gotta check the S/N to see what it is. This truck has been around. The paperwork shows lots of paint and brake work. This was a back up truck for M.A.S.H. back in the 70s-80s, I think it has screen time. It was pulled from the display area last summer to give it a make over by volunteers, summer...

    Craig has one of these. I believe it is a MK1 because it has the 3 doors on the turret. It has been sitting in the same spot that it was driven into since the early 90's. From what I understand, this came from a guy that had it at someones shop for a fuel system issue. I can tell you that the...
