Hi everyone I have a 1962 M170 that is a Marine Corps Jeep the "person" I bought it from Civil Air Patrol had it for 22 years and purchased it from MCAS Yuma in Arizona.
I have been told it was never used as a front line ambulance that it was used to move flight crews around and it has troop seats in the back and what looks like a CJ tailgate with out the holes in it for the stretcher handles to protrude through. Anyone have or seen any proof that the M170 was ever used as a light troop carrier?
I found a couple of matchbooks in the glove box from Twenty Nine Palms.
I want to clean it up and keep it the way it was used by the Corps. You can see the USMC and Yellow reg numbers through the Airforce blue the CAP put over the Marine Green. It has all the fording kit parts except the exhaust and snorkel extensions and also has the heavy rear bumper and heavy shackles front and rear.
