I said M113 1/2 Lynx for a few reasons. Some people know under different names. The Ontario Regiment tank museum has it listed on there website as
" M113 Command and Reconnaissance Vehicle - Lynx", it is listed in some books as M113 1/2 (FMC Designation), I have even seen it listed as M113 C&R.

I posted it as M113 Lynx because I am trying to acquire photos and info needed and I put down what I thought was a common name of the vehicle.

From my post in the other thread.

m38cdn period photos
Thanks so much for the info,gives me a place to start doing some research..I'm also trying to find some time period photos of Canadian m38s..I managed to piece together a decent unit out of 2 that I was a hardtop with the gas heater that came out of a barn along with 22 others near Pembroke,this one had no c.f.r on the frame so I suspect its one of the 1st markings visible under the repaint..the 2nd one I used for the frame and vin plate mainly...I'm told there's very little to go by for info on these m38s..all I know is it was out of london..I suspect going thru old pics is my best chance of getting some info..does anyone know of a site that has such photos??..I've checked the R.C.R site with no luck

New to me M38A1 CDN 3 1971 CFR 09013
I picked up this Jeep a month or so back and it was pretty much unmolested besides a couple tow hitches and winch. Complete with all 24v electrical as well as a heater.This was actually the closet find I have come across. It was owned from 1987-2014 by the same individual. Going through the Vehicle Info Package the Name that keeps popping up is Willam Stilwell in Smiths Falls Ontario- Bills Garage. Does anyone know if this establishment is still in operation? Do they still have the records of all the vehicles they have bought and sold surplus from Gov Can Surplus? Does anyone have any info about this garage?


BCA 30-10-16 01:31

Bill Stillwell had a lot of surplus dealings in the 1970's to 1990's from his home base in Smiths Falls, Ontario. At best I would say he has been retired for a decade or so. Many times he would be a buying agent for American companies like Sarafan who were interested in Crown Assets sales. Brian

302Trooper 02-11-16 03:41

Bill's Garage

I wish I had his files as this would answer so many of our questions when it comes to info about our vehicles history.

Thanks Ed,

I spoke with Mr. Stillwell last week. He was unable to find any info in his files concerning any of my Jeeps. He did sell 3 of them but he no longer had any documents remaining in his files.

Does anyone know where to find NOS seat belts for the CDN 2 or 3?

Go on ebay and look for seatbelts for boats, or aftermarket seatbelts. There are also sites on the net that sell belts. I won't use the term NOS when it comes to seat belts, because they were add-ons for the Cdn2, and there were variations in the replacement belts.

Agree with what Rob mentioned. My take off M38A1 CDN2 seat belts have conventional working ends. The attachment (as I recall) is a two-piece opposing hook with a slot for the belt and connects to an eyebolt on the vehicle. Loosen the belt wrappings, open the hooks, catch one on the eye, and maneuver the other hook to close over the eye. There may have been a cotter pin to keep the two hooks closed. Then tighten up the seat belt wraps and ignore until a restorer asks.

BTW, this thread is about asking for registration numbers not parts advice.
