  1. regarding WW2 Fabrications. I cannot find their website. Have they gone out of bussiness, does anyone know?

  3. Hello Fellow Green machine Afectionardo's! On the 30th June 2024, it is the Ashford ( Kent ) Armed Forces Day. I myself will be attending With my Command Car.

It is always an Honour to Support Our Armed services. & Monies rasied, will be donated to Military Charities. So Really Worth while Attending. The venue is Victoria Park, which is Massive. & has a superb George IV period fountain in the Grounds. A Magnificent Spectical in it's own right when working!

  4. Gordon, That is VERY interesting to see. Thank You for Posting! 👍
  5. Hello Mike, I had thought about these from the off. But i have since had information. That GMC trucks that also Towed 1 Ton Ben Hur Trailers. Had a Pair of holes in their rear crossmember for the Aux chains. When the weather is a bit better, I will roll back my Collapsable garage. & check if this was also the case for dodges? It is interesting, that this question has never been raised before?..... My findings will obviously be posted on here. For the benifit of others, who may have been thinking along similar lines. Towards towing a trailer.
  6. They were also used as reconasance vehicles. Equipment towed in trailer. left at 2nd echalon whilst out on a mission / task. Also a VERY basic question that arises from your own question is: Why would they want to tow a 1 Ton Trailer? My reply would be: why would the vehicles therfore be fitted with a tow hook assembly?.......😁
  7. Look at this one for starters. Ebay item No: 314636580208
  8. No pressure John. Just important to get it right Buddy! Many Thanks. Mike.
  9. A GMC Brace also has a square hole in the opposite end. & the socket diameter must be 40mm.
  10. Update on Info! I am informed, that a WW2 GMC (Jimmy ) truck wheel brace will fit? Anyone got a spare they no longer require at all? Mike
  11. Looked on the web. No pics of the tow hitch on a jimmy close up. found a couple of video's of Jimmy's being restored. & From what i observed the tow hitch is larger & swivels. But NO sign of any eyebolts for trailer chains?... Which opens another question: What ww2 vehicles that towed a Ben Hur 1 Ton Trailer's. Actually DID have eyebolts for the Hitch?...... Perplexing, or what?...😣
  12. I agree, I don't think CC's had them either? Do you know if weapons carrier's did? Or did Jimmy's have eyebolts, as they did also Tow Ben Hur trailers. If that was the case, I would need to source a couple of those I Guess? Regarding the Horsebox incident. I think that is one of the reasons it is law now on modern trailers. To have a brake away cable coupled to the handbrake system. It makes perfect sense when you think about it!.....
  13. Yes a bit like a Land rover defender plate as standard. I would hope to avoid that, & get some eyebolts as Enigma has suggested. Thanks for your input though. Mike.
