WOW that's one hell of a truck, looks like its in mint condition too
Please tell me lots more about it, make and model, engine, transmission, age, mileage, price and when can I get one shipped to Asia
It is a 1963 American General M35A2 Duece and a half (2 1/2 ton capacity) Army truck.
It has 67,875 miles on the original motor and transmission.
It has had the rear axel removed and the frame cut down, to make it short enough to drive around town, easily.
It has a Continental Mulit-Fuel, 6 cylinder, Turbo-Diesel. A 5-speed Manual Transmission, with Hi-Low axels, and a air shifted 4-wheel drive.
The bad thing is, it is kind of a gas gussaler. It gets about 14 MPG, but the good thing is, it will burn damn near anything you can get in the tank.
(Bunker oil, jet fuel, gasoline, alcohol, methanol, whiskey, etc...)
I custom built the bed myself, and did all the rust repairs, and custom work myself, including installing a 25,000 pound hydraulic winch on the front.
This thing is a BEAST!!! She's not very fast, but it will get you through ANYTHING!!!!
I bought the base vehicle for $1,500 USD and put about $3,000 USD into it.
Not sure for the shipping cost to Asia, (where) but you could probabilly find one of these base vehicles over there cheaper than shipping one.
Glad ya like it.
Thanks for your interest, and God bless.
