News from Ft Knox
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.

Gee Garry, you know I can't do it ALL by myself. I'm just getting the ball rolling......

You of all should know that I'm just too much of a 'busy-body'. I've been sitting on my hands for too long, so I figured we needed to start somewhere.

It wouldn't have been possible without the new staff of the museum agreeing to the project.

Massimo: The area that used to house the WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and cold war exhibits are large, expansive empty rooms. The van is in the area that used to be the Vietnam/cold war gallerys.

Currently we have no restoration shop or work area so we are doing all the work in the back area of the museum.

Regards
Don

Unfortunately no. All of the work is being done in an empty part of the museum with no lifting capability. We only have basic tools and a portable compressor. I don't think the van will need any special tools or equipment. Paint removal will be part chemical and part elbow grease. I haven't been able to do any work on her yet. Don has been doing almost all of it by himself. Some of the volunteers have helped when able. I hope to start making regular trips to work on the van after the first of the year if Don permits it. Smile

Glad to hear you are going to be busy again!

What about facilities, do you still have the equipment to perform restorations over there?

It's what we live for. Smile

Even though all of the "good stuff" has been taken away, we have been truly fortunate to be able to work on some very historic vehicles over the years. Hopefully the Patton van will be the first of more to come.

Hello,

I'm under the impression that you guys at the Patton Museum can't stay without restoring a vehicle.. and it's a very good thing !!

Exciting news from the Patton Museum. The volunteers are currently involved in a new vehicle restoration project. Headed by Don Moriarty, the volunteers are in the first stages of restoring the CCKW Patton Command Van to its 1944 appearance. Go to armorfortheages.com/ to see what is happening with this historic vehicle.

Armor for the Ages has been updated in the following areas:

The Cobra King section has been updated with the last page showing her being loaded for transport to Fort Benning.

This ends a two-year project and one of the most comprehensive records of a vehicle cosmetic restoration and research of its combat history.

The RSO was also shipped. A final look can be seen at armorfortheages.com/NA...ctPage.htm

Go to the Patton Museum Volunteer News section to see the new sign and marquee now in front of the museum. armorfortheages.com/GG...wsPage.htm

Geoff

The two tanks moved around to the bay doors will be cleaned up, repainted, and moved inside for exhibition expansion. These are the first of many planned moves as more vehicles will be incorporated into interior exhibit 'period dioramas'.

As for 'the rock',.....I'm clueless.

Don
