M3A1 Halftrack

  • move
This is a walkaround of a M3A1 Halftrack. The data plate identifies this as being an M16A1, that seems to have been rebuilt somewhere along the way.

The photos are of a restored vehicle taken at the 2012 Mid Atlantic Air Museums World War II Weekend in Reading, PA.

Below is a short concise history of this vehicle from the owner:

"KILROY II was built by Autocar, in Ardmore PA, in 1943, and started life as an M15A1. I have run with the M16A1 conversion that BMY did for the Korean war, and turned him into an M3A1, more or less!!"

Thanks for taking the time and effort to contribute and for sharing your fine photos, Delbert. Walk arounds are always welcome and we need as many as possible. These will help in a build I'm doing, and are enjoyable regardless. BTW the bottle opener is interesting; historically accurate?
