We dig military trucks, and military inspired trucks around here. I mean who doesn’t like a giant 6×6? But there are other cool military trucks that we want to buy too. Here are a couple we found on Craigslist that we think are cool enough for your driveway and ours. Check them out.
First up…Power Wagon baby! The M37 is arguably one of my favorite military trucks ever. These suckers will hold a ton of tire with little or no lift, are bulletproof, and there is nothing to them. Their simplicity is what makes them so damn cool. This one has hardly any miles on it and after leaving the Army was enlisted for the U.S. Forest Service. The original OD green is under the yellow, but I’d leave the sucker alone and let mother nature take care of it. 44 inch swampers would be a requirement for me.
1953 Dodge military M37 Power Wagon Weapons Carrier Â¾ ton pickup. This is a nice California truck that is running and mechanically ok. It only has 7019 miles on it. No major rust or corrosion. It has been converted from the original 24 volt system, to 12 volt (starter, generator) and has a new 12 volt battery. New brake master cylinder and wheel cylinders. I’ve also put on new radiator hoses, thermostat, radiator cap, ignition key, starter switch, oil pressure lines, fan belt, spark plugs & wires, front night light covers. The lights need to be checked out. Trans & clutch are fine. The yellow paint is over the original Army O.D. green. It was used by the US Forest Service after the Army. . ..that’s why it’s painted yellow and has a removable roll bar. The engine runs great, idles smoothly & quietly. . ..no smoke. Tires are in fair condition. Dash gauges & speedo are intact. It has all the data plates that match the frame number. No title. . …Seller will supply a bill of sale. If you need more pics….let me know.
Next up is a 1970 Gama Goat! Yep, the amphibious bastard that can do anything and go anywhere and makes you the coolest 6-wheeler on the street. We dig these things. They are weird but in a super cool way. This one is an M792 which is the designation given to the Ambulance models. These trucks were 6-wheel drive, 4-wheel steering and featured an articulating joint behind the center axle that made the thing more like a truck with a trailer, but the joint was all super trick and powered so that the operator could control the articulation. They were built for Vietnam and could go anywhere in mud, water, and ultra rough terrain. We dig them and want one bad. It’s Detroit D=53 powered, which is one hell of a loud 2 -stroke diesel so we’re sure it’s not a commuter, but it still would be fun to have.
Selling my military Gama Goat. Recently rebuilt diesel injectors and brand new military batteries. Runs excellent. Current CA registration and street legal. Six wheel drive and amphibious. Parts are readily available. Have a stockpile of new parts including air filters, windshields, tailgates, seat cushions, mud flaps, etc.available for buyer. I am selling off my 20 year collection of military vehicles and trailers.
Last but certainly not least is the Pinzgauer transport vehicle! This one is a 1973 and has all the cool stuff you need to make a great little camping and off road vehicle out of it. It technically hauls 14 people, has a 5 speed, 6-wheel drive, and reduction hubs, etc. It’s good to go with just some minor mods and is very similar to the Unimog. We dig it and want it. Way better than a mini van!
