This vehicle has been greatly modified at some point in the past. It has a WWII era jeep engine mounted behind the 'faux' machine gun.

During the 50's-70's (??), it was used extensively by the Post Cmdr as a ceremonial 'pass & review' vehicle.

Although in excellent interior/exterior condition, it hasn't been run in many years. The interior is nowhere near original configuration.

I was able to get a fairly indepth photo series, back in Mar / April.

Regards
Don

It should have a Model T engine shouldn't it? I would have thought they were still available?
