M-718 Body Needed

Post by Star Electric Ordnance » Sun Oct 08, 2017 5:30 pm

I am posting this for a local vehicle restorer friend of mine. He has been asked to restore an M-728 ambulance, but the body is so awful that the best bet would be to melt it down and pour it in a mold to start over! So he is looking for an A2 body. Any help out there? Thanks, Kevin.

Make that an M-718 body in the text! An M-728 is the Combat Engineer Vehicle on an M-60 hull. Kevin.

Does he have all the hard to find parts, I'm going to start a 718A1 resto this winter, took me 6 yrs to gather my stuff. Here are a couple of uncut I own. Will his build be here on the G ?

The vehicle is from a museum and I do not know the shape of the medical end. Will pass this to him tomorrow. Thanks, Kevin.

Kevin, Have you contacted Guy from CMD yet? I know he made a rear section for a 718 for a friend of his. I think it was just the floor section though. It is a start.
