O’Laughlin Tracked Vehicle(s)

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images • TAGS: .

I happened across this rare set of tracked jeeps made by O’Laughlin (a person or a company?), or it could just be one jeep with successive modifications. I only uncovered a few photos photos and very little information.How experiments on this related to the M-28/M-29 amphibious Weasel are not clear to me, but they appear to have been parallel projects given the Weasel research was begun in 1942.

I found this photo of the tracked jeep at a Cargo & Personnel Carrier site:

I found a thread on an argentine model site where someone constructed a look-a-like model.

This could potentially be the same jeep as above, only it’s rear area has been altered. I can’t quite read the numbers on the hood in the top pic to know for sure. olaughlin-tracked-cargo-carrier2

Finally, there’s a page about a tracked jeep at 42FordGPW, but the page never refers to either vehicle as a Modified vehicle. Perhaps someone can add to this info?
