V100 armored cars

Unread post by 199th mp » January 24th, 2023, 4:46 pm

over 10 years ago i came across a guy who was restoring a V100 like we used in the nam for convoy escort duty. i had my picture taken sitting in it. i had brought the manuals home with me and traded them to him for some M151 stuff and an antenna. he didn't have any pics of his V in country, so i have always kept that in the back of my mind. this morning, on the Nam page, a lot of MPs with V100 experience were posting stuff, and a pic of that very same V showed up. i am going to try and post both pics here, but i don't know if it will work.

actually, i voted for ham's ambulance. it looks great, and the V wasn't painted the right color. Rick, if you ever get the chance to drive a V, take it. they have a 361 hemi with a holley 4 barrel, a five speed box, four wheel drive, PTO winch, bullet resistant tires and they are amphibious. most fun mil vehicle i ever drove, and we haven't even talked about the twin barreled machine gun in the turret.

Ron, You seem to forget I am at least a foot taller than you, not so sure I would fit in one all that well. Especially at 70 years old and not quite so flexible as I used to be.
