The second life of GMC's

Not too late!

Many of the more than 500,000 built CCKW's have been saved and find themselves in the good hands of collectors. In The Netherlands several owners are member of Keep them Rolling, an association directed to the conservation of WOII vehicles. Private firms also cherish their GMC as a kind of tribute to the start of their enterprises in the 50-70's. To give you an impression of what a restored CCWK should look and sound like, Johan Edelhausen (www.ww2vehiclesvideos.nl) supplied me with a clip. Enjoy!.
