Default Diamonds in the rough....... Gervais Farm Wheels Museum auction

Another auction, but not as military as the latest one in the Netherlands. Yet, a CMP and a Jeep amongst all the collectables. Worth a gander. Some really old neat classics!
Check out MACKAUCTIONCOMPANY.COM. The auction is located in Alida Saskatchewan Canada, which, for those from Australia passing through is about 85 km east of Estevan. Population: A whole 131 people. Auction is set for August 4th and 5th.

Enjoy....Robert

What are people's thoughts on the CMP? C15A with rear fenders that look like those fitted to the water tanker? On the other hand there looks to be more gap between fuel tank and fender than I would have expected for that guess.

I was thinking the same thing Grant. Note that the Jeep has been extended to make it more suitable.....any farmer would do the same thing to a 15cwt.

That auction (along with another one not far from there in September) are not a long drive for me. I may well attend and see what other treasures are buried.

Interestingly this truck was made the same date as mine, Oct 3, 1944, 15 frame serial numbers newer, 8 engine serial numbers newer. The contract was different. This water truck was CDLV2612 whereas mine is CDLV2615.

Here's a link to the auction: http://mackauctioncompany.com/18aug4.html

Seems this was a museum, now on auction because the founder has passed away? There's lots of stuff to be coming out of the woodwork with the first generations of collectors fading away....

Would be interesting to go to the viewing day just to see the collection!
