This is a little long at 23:48, and there is no audio, but there are sub titles for every picture. But if your interested in Gun Trucks and the brave crews that manned them, this is for you. There are about 100 Gun Trucks shown here. Some Gun Trucks were built on M51 dumpers, and at 16:20 Proud American is shown, and at 21:39 War Wagon.

Thank you. I’m not a audio/visual type person. If I were, I’d try and set up a video for people to watch when I show the trucks, unfortunately that’s a bit outside my skill set.

You'll notice that several gun trucks were built on M51 Dump Trucks, that's the first time I've seen a dumper used for that purpose. Yes, the several trucks with APC bodies, heavy but good armor.

If you can find James Lyles books, there’s a very informative list of all 555 +/- guntrucks built during the Vietnam War. In some cases there are crews names, truck pictures (everything from the wood armor all they way through to the APC gun trucks). I have copies of all three books in case questions arise about specific trucks. It was his books that helped me focus my efforts building my truck.
