    I have my first MV an M170 with a split large gun window I'm restoring, new at this,

    There was a M170 for sale in Kenosha, Wis. a few years back, it had a Buick engine and a recoilless rifle windshield. I wonder if this is the same Jeep? Scott

    Our local county (Portage County, Wis.) just got one of those as well. Had to pay the shipping to get it here, otherwise it was no cost to acquire. Scott

    Railroad Forum

    You can't list them on a well-known auction site as they don't allow RR locks and keys to be sold per their policies. As a collector myself, I'd say you have $100-$150 each lock plus probably $50 each key if marked similarly. Last summer I took some bags of cans into the local recycler, and...

    725 door latches anyone?

    Yes, try to get inside the inner door panel and spray WD40 or lube of your choice in there. There isn't much stopping the rain water going down the window in to the regulator or handle mechanisms. Check as well. Here is a pic of mine. Scott

    GSA auctions

    As with any auction, you should preview it. I have purchased thru GSA before, and was satisfied with what I got. My lot said the engine had a hole in it, but it was the exhaust manifold that was cracked, not the engine. Remember this about the descriptions: Any Joe shmo fills them out...

    715 found, worth it?

    Although this truck is complete, it has been sitting a while. Figure $150 for fuel pump rebuild, $60 for carb kit and $100 to get tank boiled out just to try to start it. $50 master cylinder, $25 x 4 wheel cylinders, fluid, maybe lines and shoes, too. This stuff all goes bad quickly when...
