It's time for a vehicle quiz
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

This vehicle also supposedly has archimedean screws (presumably underneath the hull) - although I have never seen them due to it usually being parked in high grass... Hopefully it will be restored one day.



Frankly this one is almost impossible to guess for a quiz - it is extremely obscure! It is not mentioned in Crismon's US Military Wheeled Vehicles. It was however pictured and briefly mentioned in the AFV Profile on Armored Cars...

People are more likely to know what it is because I posted pics of it on the old board... You can also cheat, but that probably wont help you a whole lot unless you already have seen it before...

Barr-Car!

Some exo-skelton, with fibreglass-like hull.

...with M42 "Duster" in background for extra credit...


...didn't know about the screws...but not primary propulsion on land so different from the others...

Okay, I guess not too hard for this group - but I'm sure you've seen my pics before.

Since it was a Ford-AAI project, I kinda wonder if there's some 1960s Ford automotive components underneath all of that. Also wonder if the 20mm in the turret was an M139 like the other ARSV candidates.

Neil,
Hey...you can't educate us and then deny you've created your own monsters, ya' know!

Yeah, I wonder about the engine too. I fantasize about an FE block...in either 410 or 427 C.I. Mr. Green
