Custom 6x6 Anti tank Tug Jeep

Post by Threetoughtrucks on Mon Sep 08, 2014 10:04 am

During early WW2, two of these tugs were made for testing but probably because of the light AT gun, never made it past Aberdeen Proving Ground.

This custom version using 2 Hasbro Jeeps with a DML 37mm gun mounted was made by a craftsman in FL, who makes custom GI Joe vehicles. The tug has complete undercarriage and a ton of accessories that would have been found on a battle hardened vehicle (maps, wine, food case, 37mm ammo etc., etc.), weathered and ready for the action it never saw.

I feel proud to have it in my collection.

This is so cool! Even though it was not produced, as an experimental vehicle, it is a significant piece. It looks like a smaller version of the WC63.

The customizer that created this "tug" has made a few "conversations" of Hasbro M3 halftracks to straight personal carrier with or without pulpits. What fascinates me are his "what could have been" experimental vehicles. This "tug" would have been a very nice cargo or personal carrier if produced. He recently made a  Harley Davidson mc with sidecar that had tractor off road tires. Only one was ever made and that vehicle has survived in a HD museum. BTW - I bid on that one but lost.
