building of our 1956 Chevrolet Carryall COMMO Vehicle
day it was delivered to our home in Orlando. We
did not know it was OD Green. We had bought it sight-unseen
to build a HotRod! I had a 454 Big Block that was
going to go in.
I started sanding the rear of the Vehicle, I saw
U.S.Army IC2214. I knew I had something special
and decided to restore it back to Military.
dash still had the original stencils for max speed
(55), Tire Pressure (35) and original cost ($1530.61).
It also had the original Government Nomenclature
Data plate that matched the VIN.
All original the seats were missing and Hi-back
buckets from a 1970's car has been installed. I
removed these seats and found an original 1956 Chevy
rear area was in terrible shape since it had been
used to haul fire fighting equipment around Dorrance
Kansas from 1972 until I bought it in 1998. It took
a lot of sanding to get this area presentable.
IS NOT A GOVERNMENT SITE. IT IS JUST MY WAY SAYING
THANK YOU TO ALL THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE
U.S. ARMY SIGNAL CORPS, PAST PRESENT AND FUTURE.
