As a chronic Craigslister, I often come across the huge, six ton military truck in the picture above called the M35A2—aka the “Deuce and a half.” The crazy thing is, the huge behemoth routinely sells for under $2,000, which makes it a total bargain in terms of weight-to-dollar ratio. What other ridiculously huge cars…
M35 "deuce and a half" army trucks are surprisingly easy to come by. If you can't find one rotting in some farmer's field, there are always a handful selling cheap at auctions. But I've never seen one re-imagined as beautifully as this.
If you're on the market for the ultimate small car-crushing offroad rig, look no further than this rebuilt 1971 AM General M35A2 Custom Crew Cab. C & C Equipment, a custom truck shop in Indiana, completely refurbished the thing with awesome '70s-vintage camo paint and modern, more comfortable seats.
In this vintage footage we see the M34a2 nicknamed the "Eager Beaver" in testing on an "underwater service cruise". Something tells us hitchhiking "mermaids" haven't made an appearance in an Army equipment test since.
