kiwis on route 66
Today is a rest day it is raining cats and dogs. We are parked up at Fort Reno, Oklahoma
We have decided to profile some of the convoy vehicles.
This is a Chevrolet one and a half ton truck from World War Two.
This truck is owned by Warren Duchesne he bought it a year ago for $1000. Previously owned by the Colorado School District. It was used to recover stranded snow bound school buses and to fetch snow bound children inaccessible to buses. Unbelievably, the complete tool kit still in Cosmoline preservative, the original extinguisher and the rifle rack were still in the truck.
The military designation is G506. It has a 235 cubic inch 83 HP engine. It has a 4 speed gear box and a two speed transfer case. It is the baby sister to the famous GMC (General Motors Corp).
151,053 Trucks made, most exported to Russia and UK
