  1. Hi, thanks John 1950, and cheers Pete Ashby for heads up on the book, will put that on Christmas list. I'm hoping to visit overlord this year. and have a close look at some 6x6s if there are some. Never been there before...
  2. Haha, just thought, it takes a minute or two.... If you put a rear axle on the front steering might be a problem, lol. But still could there be a different axle for double wheels on the front, or is that daft as well?
  3. Well going back to the sticky out bit on the front wheel hubs, most don't a few do. I've got a idea! Maybe the Sicky out axles on the front where in fact rear axles.. which seem to have a longer center, so maybe they run out of front axles or wanted the option of double wheels on the front? Like the rear. What do you think?
  4. Found this site very interesting pics and info... Loads of different use GMCs

  6. Cheers john1950 will take a look : )
  7. Well this is interesting, as a new guy here, and not yet a owner of anything military.... One of the reasons I find these vehicles attractive is that surely anything goes... I like the fact that because of age and the use these vehicles were designed for, a few dents brush marks and wear n tear just suits them, a nice and very practical change from the show room brand new perfection that is nearly always desired on everyday transport, these vehicles don't need perfect flat panels and paintwork to make them special. They already are! : )
  8. Had a quick look at CCKW forum, very good and someone there called Degsy!
  9. Thanks John 1950👍and thanks Degsy will look at forum, and thanks to everyone for answers and comments and pictures : )
  10. Sorry to ask again guys, but had a look on line here and there about numbers and letters on these trucks and couldn't find a reference to air portable, I'm sure there would be...... cckwap? That's not me with a lisp swearing!
  11. Thanks Pete Ashby, this one was at Brooklands the other month.
  12. Thanks Degsy and radiomike? This is all good stuff ! I imagine there would be some references to a vehicle being air portable in the chassis number?.... But I wonder if there is a visible way to tell, even if you have to crawl underneath?
  13. Well thanks John 1950 and Richard Farrant, from the link it looks very similar to modern forged I beam, that you see Even today, things don't really change that much! Would you know did the air potable GMC s come with 6x6 and or 6x4 as I imagine weight would be a issue, and have read that these vehicles split in half behind the cab???
