Missile Cars and Trucks

Years ago I visited Green Valley, Arizona and their nuclear missile silo. This is part of the above ground facilities.

When I go to museums like this, I always try and take photos of any vehicles that may be present. This is a US Airforce station wagon. This gives me a use for a civilian station wagon model. Civilian vehicles are often used by the military and museums like this often give examples of them.

This four wheel drive king cab pickup truck was also used by the US Airforce at this missile site.

Here is a front view showing the same vehicle. Note the brush guard on the front.

This photo shows the very familiar M-151 MUTT Jeep. The difference is this one has a hard cab and flashing red lights on the roof. An interesting conversion project for the Roco Jeep.
