M3A1 Scout Car project

Postby njjeeper » January 23rd, 2018, 10:38 am

I know its not a Mutt but thought some folks may like to see it. It's a 1942 Lot 5 M3A1 White Scout Car. Needs pretty much everything and will take a while to get right!

Hey I know that car! Well I saw that car. Had a maintenance shelter tent delivered by the same guy who brought your scout car. We met up Saturday morning so I could get the tent. The tent was under that car and the poles were strapped in the back.

Wow! Looks like a section of the skate ring.. Have those reproduced and the world will beat a path to your door. Believe it or not, somewhere around here I actually have an original blueprint with all the details for the skate ring for the Scout Car.

Scout cars are dirt simple.. You'll have that puppy going in no time but be forewarned....when you do your wheel bearings and seals, keep your hubs perfectly organized. Don't ask me how I know. :roll:

Cheers,

Figuring out how to bend that section of replacement skate rail is keeping me up at night :)
