Default ***SOLD*** 1971 Jeep M35A2 2.5 Ton Military Cargo Truck (Deuce & a half..) - $5000

***SOLD***


Putting up for sale my Deuce. A summer full of hospital bills and too many project vehicles, so thinning the herd.

This is a 1971 M35A2 W/W 2.5 ton cargo truck. Its a Kaiser Jeep/General Products Division / AM General. (Titled simply as 'Jeep', from 70-72, the name kept changing...)

Overall, its in good shape. There are a few rust spots, but solid for a 40yr old truck. Mechanically in very good shape, no known issues with it. All interior stuff/gages/etc works fine. This truck was in service until last year with the Michigan National Guard, assgined to a military police unit as a command truck.

I don't have the numbers here, but around 15,000 miles on it, and maybe 1200hours? I'll check later.

Had a full depot rebuild in 1990 or 91, again, I'll have to check the tag.

Engine is an LDT-465d / D-turbo, starts and runs excellent. 5 speed shifts good, I've been told from others that its quite good/tight for a Deuce.

Air Shift transfer case/front axle, works perfectly. I've had to use 6WD before and it all operates correctly.

10,000lb Garwood PTO winch on the front, with Hi/Lo/Rev 200ft of 5/8" cable. I've used it to recover a stuck wrecker, which is handled with no problem.

It is a soft top truck, the top is a newer rubberized/vinyl tri-color camo top, which is nicely insulated. It takes 2 minutes to remove the top for summer driving, which is really a blast.

I also have the rear bows and a newer rubberized matching tri-color rear canvas. The bows aren't the best, but they work, and the rear canvas doesn't completely close in the rear. There's a 'doorway' cut into the back flap, about 3 ft wide (was from a door there, as a command truck). Also has the folding troop seats in the bed, in OK shape.

The box is 8ft wide x 12ft long. Rated for 10,000lbs payload onroad, 5,000lb offroad(hence the 2.5 ton rating). I've loaded it with 5000lbs+ of wood and it hauls like a champ.

This truck has the optional cab heater (hot water style) and ether start system. The bottle has at least some ether in it. Drivers seat is a springer seat. both seats have seatbelts.

Overall, its a nice truck. I've driven it for 100+ miles on I-75 @ 55mph, and have over 500 miles on it this summer, never a problem with it. There's nothing that NEEDs to be done to enjoy this truck.

It has a 50 gallon tank, and is a mutli-fuel engine. Can run Diesel, Biodiesel, Kerosene, Jet Fuel, can mix in waste motor oil, and can run on gasoline as well (mix in motor oil to lube the fuel pump). Mileage is around 8mpg, maybe 10 on the highway (I don't drive highway much...).

I currently have it with full insurance ($150 per year through state farm) and historic plates ($30 good for 10 years), so cost of ownership is dirt cheap.

Included in the sale will be a complete set of new-in-box filters: 1 Air filter, 2 oil filters, and 3 fuel filters. Also 2 bottles of DOT-5 brake fluid and a gallon of Rotella-T. Also a NOS air-pressure warning light, in case you'd prefer a light, instead of the standard buzzer. I can also burn a CD of all of the service manuals.

We take this to car shows, truck shows for kids, parades, woodward cruise, etc. Its an absolutely riot to drive and crowd pleaser. Located in Oxford, MI.

Not really looking for trades, I have enough stuff. Thanks

$5000

Oh, I have the clean, normal Michigan title with this. No dealing with govt forms, fees, waiting for months to be approved to go get your truck for auction only to find that 'Won't Start' means 'Won't Start because there's a rod hanging out of the block'....
