You probably saw these trucks lurking around in the Walter AWUS video from last week. I know some of you have been waiting to see more of the military wrecker and busted Oshkosk trucks so without further ado here they are. I’ll start by saying that I didn’t do my homework on these rigs like I did with the Walter so the walk around videos are less than educational but hopefully still entertaining. Information on the tow truck was sparse. For the year we were told it was a 1970’s with no make or manufacturer provided. I’m not sure if this is a typo or the result of broken gauges but mileage is listed as 81. Yes, 81 miles with a whopping 46 hours on the clock. Could this be correct?
My knowledge of military trucks is very low but I assume that numbers painted on the bumper and other various parts can tell us something about where this truck served or where it came it from?
Despite the non starting, non running, and very rotted cab this truck sold for $3,625 dollars. All things considered I don’t think it was that far gone and there is a lot of steel here for that price. If you know more details about this machine please be kind and share.
Also available for sale were two Oshkosh plow rigs. A 1986 C Series and a 1989 P series. Both sold for over 5,000 grand and came with front blades and wing. Sanding bodies had already been removed.
Overall condition of these trucks was meh to poor. Rust was starting to set in heavy on the frames and cabs. Auctions notes mention both were able to move under the own power.
Now somewhere in all this activity I missed the chance to check out a 1964 Austin Western grader. I never even saw it! I guess it was somewhere behind a compost pile or something. Oh well, I think we saw enough cool stuff from the Town of Camillus for awhile. 😉
