    Default My "find" of the week

    Gotta be one of the best $50 I ever spent! Gov't auction, put in a sealed envelope bid and come home with this cool Jeep trailer.


    Built in '65 and the tires are a '68 and a '70. They drove home at 70 no bouncing, pretty incredible IMO. It's a 3/4 ton M101a and appears to have the dump bed ability and locking handbrakes. Yeah it's rough, but certainly can't deny the character. I am not sure what I am gonna do with it yet, but maybe a camping trailer set up. Any ideas?

    Amazingly, all the lights and wiring harness are intact and in good shape; BUT it's a 24v system so have to figure that out. Note the Gov't plate #50 (same as the purchase price!)

    Just had to share, I think it'll be sweet behind the Jeep next year.

    It would be easier to re wire it but they do make a 24v to 12v converter. great find!

    very nice find, I was looking for one of those a while back. A buddy of mine owns a company where he restores WW2 Jeeps, every part you need. Thats where I got the paint for my comp Jeep to make it Olive Drab. If you need anything or point drop him a line. armyjeepparts.com the guys name is George, tell him Tyler Meade sent you.

    Again, nice find.

    I have been messing around looking at the gov liquidations, but never had the guts to bid one something. I saw dump trucks for 50 bucks, and just saw a lot of like 28 tires going for 50 bucks also
