1966 KAISER JEEP M35A2
Bought it from a private collector in Spanaway, WA. I have personally added the winter camouflage paint job, Goodyear 395/85R20 MVT tires on powder coated rims, added a turbocator boost/pyrometer meter to monitor EGT in the turbo and then turned the fuel up. The truck has a multi-fuel engine that will burn anything from JP-8 jet fuel, down to automatic transmission fluid. I love to take it to car shows and parades because its a great piece of military history and it sticks out like a sore thumb. Next on the list is to get rid of the Armstrong steering and upgrade to power steering.
