Maintenance costs like anything else depends on what breaks but parts are readily available from many sources.  The engine has 2 oil filters and 3 fuel filters, the air filter is the most expensive at roughly 50 bucks. An oil change requires 22 quarts of oil.

Maintenance is an on going thing but many parts like filters and such are available over the counter.

Parts are widely available on line but are getting more expensive.

M35s are all old trucks and drive and maintain as such. Don't let this deter you from getting one.

I've wanted an M35 for years, but have never been able to justify buying one.

Sorry can only add my M416 restoration for now

Never did bother taking any photos (or at least digitize) of any of the CUCV's I had







I got sidetracked into a CJ-7 Project after this was completed (started with the 416 since it is truly multi purpose)

Just started the search for the next project, also really torn between am MBW/GPW or M151 (since I have a service history with the MUTT). But, since I have a 1919 it would be uber cool to do a MBW/GPW (and plus I have some photos of my Grandfathers Jeep in the ETO)

Manpower and cost.
We were using the Huey's and tanks selling rides to finance the rest of the collection
After 9/11 we had to stop running the tanks. So we lost money.
Then the Huey got screwed by the FAA and we lost our exemption so that dried up.
Then dad got cancer was sick for 4 year and died.

Back story on the M60 please!!!!!!!!

When I left the Military in the early 90's, I kind of survived on hustling all sorts of flotsam and jetsam from DRMO (when it used to be good before it went to GovLiquidation). Anyway, two semi-complete M48 hulls (no power packs but complete running gear and interior) were going off at Picatinny and I found a complete turret in Maine. Talked to the SSGT who ran that DRMO site and we went over the whole demil process for Tanks and what had to be done via the instructions.

It was way more than I would have been able to handle at that phase in my life, even though I had easy access to transport and shop facilities required so I never bid (and they went for around a grand or so)

Was this one repaired after demil or was it an export?

Really really cool!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just picked it up for $1700.

It came with an extra transmission, front axle, roll bar, tow hitch, and shit ton of other things.

Dad and I set up a 501-C3 museum and were approved. We asked Army Tank Command for a Tank. They released us an M-60 out of the General Dynmamics tank plant in Detroit. It was complete and running. It had an experimental turret a bit different from the normal tanks and was built in about 1975 IIRC. We also applied for a limited demil of the weapons system only. We were approved, otherwise would have had to remove the power pack and weld track when we got it home. As I said before we made money selling rides, did parades, and gerneally had a blast until 9/11 when the Army shut us down.

I did get to give Col Robert Morgan his first tank ride. He was the pilot of the B-17 Memphis Belle

As I said before we made money selling rides, did parades, and gerneally had a blast until 9/11 when the Army shut us down.

I did get to give Col Robert Morgan his first tank ride. He was the pilot of the B-17 Memphis Belle

M-60 A1 Tank

M-29C Weasel
M-42 Duster antiaircraft tank
M-38 Jeep



Back story on the M60 please!!!!!!!!

When I left the Military in the early 90's, I kind of survived on hustling all sorts of flotsam and jetsam from DRMO (when it used to be good before it went to GovLiquidation). Anyway, two semi-complete M48 hulls (no power packs but complete running gear and interior) were going off at Picatinny and I found a complete turret in Maine. Talked to the SSGT who ran that DRMO site and we went over the whole demil process for Tanks and what had to be done via the instructions.

It was way more than I would have been able to handle at that phase in my life, even though I had easy access to transport and shop facilities required so I never bid (and they went for around a grand or so)

Was this one repaired after demil or was it an export?

Really really cool!!!!!!!!!!!!        

Dad and I set up a 501-C3 museum and were approved. We asked Army Tank Command for a Tank. They released us an M-60 out of the General Dynmamics tank plant in Detroit. It was complete and running. It had an experimental turret a bit different from the normal tanks and was built in about 1975 IIRC. We also applied for a limited demil of the weapons system only. We were approved, otherwise would have had to remove the power pack and weld track when we got it home. As I said before we made money selling rides, did parades, and gerneally had a blast until 9/11 when the Army shut us down.

Thanks for the info, saw your later post and condolences for your Dad. Hopefully, you have enough happy memories of that time to last a lifetime.

I had no idea about anything post 9/11 that would have affected this. I was pretty much done with my quest to be the next Sarafan or Memphis by early 95 when I bet the farm on a bunch of M880 CUCV's, Ben Hur type water tanks, pumps and what not to re-manufacture them into low cost FD Brush Trucks...had to get a job after that brilliant idea

I swear the fights he had with the army and FAA over this stuff put him in an early grave.

My 1986/1989 M1031 Shop Equipment Contact Maintenance vehicle.  CUCV 1 ton Chevy K30 with HD suspension for a maximum 9200 pound gross vehicle weight.  NP 205 transfer case with Muncie PTO driving a 12kW Lima MAC generator.  Also came with a 7 CFM air compressor.  All function like new, it had 9009 original miles in 2012.  Generator had 2.7 hours on the Hobbs meter.  





The truck was in storage until 1989 when the bugs were finally worked out of the PTO governor system design and Able Body Company installed the box.  I met one of the designers of the system a few weeks ago, just in odd chance.








I use it for fence repair on the farm and as a mechanics truck for the MVPA club I belong to.  It supports my Miller Dynasty welder just fine, while not period correct, it is even better than the old Miller XMT originally supplied with the truck.




I have added a rear view camera, electric trailer brakes, receiver hitch and AIR CONDITIONING .  The AC is a 24 volt powered contraption I designed and built myself.  Draws 70+ amperes at full power and is a variable speed compressor, 1200 to 3000 RPM.

HaHa You sure got one over on the guy that was only offering $1500. Damn low ballers.
I have a friend with a White scout car, pretty rare stuff.
Nice looking trucks keep it up.

Maintenance costs like anything else depends on what breaks but parts are readily available from many sources.  The engine has 2 oil filters and 3 fuel filters, the air filter is the most expensive at roughly 50 bucks. An oil change requires 22 quarts of oil.

  Yeah but name another vehicle can you turn around and dump the engine oil into the fuel tank and run the engine off of it!

Not much of a vehicle but...

The M18 paracaisson. A self-contained ammunition cart that was dropped from the belly of a C-47 with the 75mm pack howitzer.

I wouldn't do that.  Engine oil is a bit too thick for the Ambac or American Bosch distributor injection pump.  Yes, they were designed as multifuel but that means diesel, jet fuel or motor gasoline.  Not aviation gasoline as its anti knock index is too high for compression ignition.  They will tolerate 10-20% motor oil if 5w30 or thinner.  Used motor oil?  Not good.  Used Diesel engine oil?  Really bad.  

 



But if you like removing the hydraulic head off the injection pump and buying a new one every 500 miles, go ahead.  It is still cheaper to run #2 diesel.

Maintenance is an on going thing but many parts like filters and such are available over the counter.

Parts are widely available on line but are getting more expensive.

M35s are all old trucks and drive and maintain as such. Don't let this deter you from getting one.
