No Reserve !! $1.00 Starting Bid (And our guarantee that we will not cancel this auction early for a cash offer outside of eBay, as this truck is not listed for sale anywhere else – you have my personal word on that!) Authentic Military Surplus 1972/2014* AM General M35A2C Military 2-1/2 ton 6X6 Cargo Truck with -2,000 lb MAXON LIFT GATE, -STAKE BED / FLAT BED CARGO and -46″ MICHELIN SUPER SINGLES!! Super Clean, Super-Straight Truck COMPLETE BODY OFF CUSTOM RESTORATION!! *This truck was an amazing find. It was actually a US Army Truck once before it was transferred to a Southern California Air National Guard Base, so it was always a West Coast truck. Technically, under the “Total Force” concept, California Air National Guard units are considered to be Air Reserve Components (ARC) of the United States Air Force (USAF). So being an Air Force truck means that it was always well maintained. In 1984 it received a complete military overhaul – NEW engine, transmission, transfer case, axles, etc. as you can see from the below pictures. Between 1972 when it was manufactured and today, it has only been driven a total of 24,650 miles. We then tore it completely down and overhauled it to bring it up to our standards. Total document hours on this truck since the day it was built in is 1,032 – amazing!! We have too many hours to count painstakingly restoring this truck to make it run/look better than it did when it first rolled off the assembly line! NOTE: (to comply with eBay, DoD and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) Part 121): No weapons, ammunition or un-demilitarized hardware in this No Reserve Auction. Complete body off the frame restoration done on this truck – months of work to make it perfect! Almost every major and minor mechanical part is new or rebuilt – from all the wheel bearings (inner and outer), axle seals and brakes to the Injection/Lift Pump, Injectors, Air Lines, most of the Wiring, Gaskets, Hoses, Fluids, Alternator and Batteries! PLUS; Completely Stripped and Painted from top to bottom -AND Bed Lined THIS MONTH! Over 275 High Resolution Photo’s and 1 Short Video below… PLUS 100+ Bonus Pictures at the Bottom of the Listing from This and Past Photo Shoots/Builds We started with a stock ANG 6X6 M35A2C from the military that was already in excellent shape (I personally cherry-pick from only the best trucks to start with) and it had already received a cargo modification; the addition of a Flat/Stake Bed with a heavy duty 2,000 lb MAXON Lift Gate. We tore the truck down to the frame and then went completely through the motor, stripped the frame and the body and reassembled it. The high-traffic areas got two coats of a durable commercial spray-on bed liner. The frame and all body panels are also sanded and prepped and then they get 2 coats of a high quality filler primer. After more sanding and prep, 2 coats of Military Camouflage paint goes on and once cured under the lamps, all the stenciling is matched and replaced. The interior, engine compartment and undercarriage receive as much prep and attention prior to painting as the body did (makes no sense in my opinion to have the best truck on the block and then leave the interior looking like it just came out of Iraq;-). We replace most of the wiring, brake lines and air lines and then turn the rear hubs (replacing the inner and outer wheel bearings and axle seals at the same time) so the front and rear tires track correctly – we don’t cut corners and use offset wheels – this way you can rotate your tires any time you want. Lastly we put an EXCELLENT set of MONSTER 46″ tall Michelin Super Single 395/85R20 XZL’s with new custom-cut 2-piece military wheels underneath this beast. Anything that needed work is replaced with new OEM parts – not repaired or rebuilt. Back together, this truck is HUGE and very capable – it would be almost impossible to get this truck stuck with the 6-wheel drive, and the 46 inch tires gives you a top speed increase to 60 miles an hour at 2,400 rpm’s. Even with the size of this truck though, it is surprising easy to drive. The steering is easier than a stock 2-1/2 ton once we are done with it and you can literally turn the wheel with one finger at almost any speed. There’s way too much work to break down and list here, but see the more than 275 high resolution pictures and 1 video below for all the details. Clear Title on hand!

Hard to find like-new restored M35A2C military 6X6 “Deuce” 2-1/2 ton cargo truck with 8 x 13-foot Flat/Stake cargo bed on the back, Multifuel Diesel Motor and 46″ Super Singles. The exterior is extremely nice, recently stripped and professionally painted with 3-color Woodland Camouflage Paint. EXCELLENT tires – they are all 90 to 95%!

I guarantee that it will be left out front waiting for you after dinner – both for the attention it will draw AND for the fear you’ll see in the valet’s eyes at the thought of trying to park it! SUPER SINGLE TIRES 46″ Tall 395/85R20 Michelin XZL’s You’ll notice that we turned the rear hubs so the front and rear tires track correctly with the wheels inverted (we don’t cut corners and use offset wheels – this way you can rotate all of your tires any time you want). With the beadlocks and the military 2-piece wheels under this behemoth you will have a very unique and capable truck for sure!! All Six (6) tires are in great shape, hold air and range from 90 to 95% tread. With the 46 inch tires and custom 2-piece wheels, you can actually break down a tire and wheel in the field without any special tools and patch a leak with a commercial patch kit!! But, if you don’t want to mess with that; BRAND NEW FULL SIZED SPARE INCLUDED It’s a different model of tire (Michelin 46″ 395/85R20 XL), but it is the same size and is on the same wheel so it will get you home in a pinch if you need it.
