This is definitely not ALL stock.  In particularly, check out the funky way the windshield rotates up.  It’s been connected to a bracket that rotates.

The Heartland Museum of Military Vehicles in Lexington, Ne


The Heartland Museum of Military Vehicles is located at 606 Heartland Road in Lexington, Nebraska (just off I-80).  What this means is that I drove right by it, 15 years ago, and didn’t know it was there; However, at the time, we were traveling with 3 vehicles, in-laws, a 6 week old baby boy, 2 cats, and a everything we owned.  The trip was a 3 day move from the moraines of Madison, Wisconsin, to the mountains of  SLC, Utah.

Given all the factors and distractions, I suppose it wasn’t the best time to stop at a museum.  However, we did stop when the rear tire blew out on the motorhome I was driving somewhere in the middle of Nebraska.  Now, I didn’t know this was the rear tire when the explosion rocked the motorhome at 65 mph.  No, I was pretty sure a crack opened in the middle of the highway and the devil himself had grabbed a hold of the rear axle, attempting to pull us all to the depths of Hades.  It wasn’t until I slowed (perhaps screeched) to a stop that I came to my senses (an started breathing again) and realized that it was only a tire.  My next step was to clean up my pants.

Importantly, it wasn’t just a tire that blew, because something was opened by the blast ….  a hole in the wheel well.  Though we didn’t realize the hole was there, the cats did.  So, in the middle of the night, after a long day of driving, with everyone asleep, those dumb Wisconsin farm cats (Dodger and Tucker) snuck outside (by opening one of the kitchen cabinet doors near the floor and then sneaking out the hole in the wheel well).  At about 2 am, one of our cats (Dodger) started crying outside the motorhome waking us all up.  It took all my effort not to strangle Dodger; the other cat, Tucker, didn’t reappear until we were packed up and ready to abandon him.  By then we were actually happy to see him.

Yes, that was not a good time to visit what appears to be a fine Museum, with over 100 military vehicles of all kinds.  So, just a tip, leave the cats and all your stuff at home.  Here are some pics of what you’ll see.

From is this cool image which includes a MB SlatGrille and a M-38A1:

I can’t remember where I found this image … oops.

From the Unwanted Blog, come these images of a M-38A1, a Schwimmwagen, and a Kubelwagen:

1945 VEC CJ-2A Ishpeming, Mi $450


UPDATE:  Price dropped to $450

(05/21/2009) It appears this body sports an early CJ-2A body with a VIN number of 11891 (though the seller believes it to be a 1947 body).  At the very least, it’s got the driver side cutouts to validate the VIN number.  It’s hard to tell what else is original.

“This jeep was a project vehicle for our prop building studio. It was intended to be used in parades, promotional pictures, and promotional videos as a Cobra runabout. We got this far, before we just didn’t have the spare cash or time to pour into it any longer.  Serial Number appears to be 11891. The plate is still in place on the dash, but is pretty weathered, so the last digit may be off. You can judge for yourself, as I have added a pic of the Serial # plate…..”
