1943 GMC closed cab long wheel base going up for sale.

This Jimmy is one of the best in the country for sure. Restored about 3 years ago and dry stored since when not in use and between events.

The canvas is as new as is the copolar cover. :lol:

All wheels are shod with correct WWII pattern NDT tyres, :lol: the front two are brand new and done about 120 miles. Also there is a couple of good spares too. :lol: The exhaust is still good, however there is also a Stainless steel system there as a replacement when the time comes. :lol:

All Pioneer tools are correct WWII issued items. :lol: Vehicle comes with a full workshop manual. :lol:

To be sold with the vehicle or seperate, is a steel bodied Ben Hur Trailer. The trailer has good canvas and ALL the woodwork. All the electrics were updated prior to Normandy Trip 2004.

The GMC and Trailer is for sale for £4500.

The GMC on its own is for sale for £4000

The Ben Hur is for sale for £700

New Vehicle project forces sale of this very nice bit of kit :cry:

Please PM me for further details

Kind Regards

Lee Bowden

I think it will be going to a good owner Les and I appreciate the sentiment. Only another "Rivet Counter" can appreciate the TLC that goes into keeping their old war horses on the road.

Hopefully as a large barn door closes another smaller one opens.

Kindest Regards

Lee

Its a sad day when ones pride and joy becomes some one else's new pride and joy. Alas this morning my 1942 GMC Close Cab left Twinwoods for the very last time.

However I am happy that it is going to a keen owner who will have her undercover with other WWII MV stable mates. I got what I wanted and needed for her and the trailer and with a new project shortly starting this is very good news too, however when I saw her pulling away with the fantastic noise that stright six makes through the exhaust, I have to say I was a little chocked to say the least.

She has seen us safely over to Normandy and has taken my group hundreads of miles to events around the country, she will be missed. But life goes on and an exciting new vehicle is just around the corner. The anchor it has provided to any one base location has finally been lifted and of that I am ultimatly gratefull :cry: :lol:

Regards to all

Lee
