Ford/AAI - Armored Reconnaissance Scout Vehicle
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.

Post subject: Ford/AAI - Armored Reconnaissance Scout Vehicle

Dear Sirs,
I turn to you for help. I accidentally stumbled upon two interesting vehicle design, which originated in the sixties, thanks to cooperation of the Ford Motor Co. and Aircraft Armaments Inc.

Armoured version of a ARSV
Floating%20version%20of%20a%20ARSV%20(Photo%20by:%20JW%20de%20Boer)%20

I managed to obtain U.S. patents of these vehicles and I am looking for another information. I am interested in the technical details and history.

Best Regards Jiri

I thought we'd been all through this own before. Isn't this the "Bar Car", an example of which is in the collection at El Monte? In fact, isn't the pic above the same vehicle?

I believe it was fiberglass construction or something on the front, with that "exoskeleton" to protect it when coming ashore.

This might be one of Neil's pics...

Sigh...

Yes, that is the forgotten and forlorn "Barr Car." It's actually at VMMV in Virginia. It was nicknamed that after AAI's Irwinn Barr articles.baltimoresun....or-glenn-l

More photos smg.photobucket.com/al...Barr2c.jpg

A friend and I once actually thought about trying to take it off their hands and restore it - we were thinking it was small enough and hoping it actually had a Ford engine or something like that... BTW, it has an Archimedean drive underneath, which the patent photos dont seem to show. But we were told it was given to VMMV by AAI, so they couldnt sell it to anyone... So unfortunately it sits unattended last I saw it...

Perhaps for the best though, not sure the fiancee would be too crazy about being a part owner in an armored vehicle Wink

Jim once told me he was contacted by someone (possibly in SC from the e-mail address, which no longer works) that was restoring one. But I havent been able to track down evidence of another one...

Neil

Thanks for sorting the details on that, Neil. I was pretty sure it was your pic.

I'm not sure we didn't do this way-back-when on the old board as well.

Neil,
when trying to translate written here, I started to "burn the PC" . Thanks for the link to your photos. AAI ARSV overgrown grass is also VMMV in Virginia?

Yes, it's the same vehicle taken at different times from different angles.

Dear Sirs,
on the internet I found a photo of AAI ARSV, not tower (!) and not splashboard.



I do not know which of the year. Does anyone know how old is she?
