FreedomVehicles.org spent Martin Luther King day acquiring additional vehicles to add to its collection of patriotism building tools. We were able to locate a 1941 M2-4 in St George Utah which is a very rare find and was only a few days away from being towed to the scrap metal heap. Once there it would have been shipped to China and use to make new steel. I am very happy to report that we were able to negotiate for it and we will be bringing it to the shop for restoration. It is is very rough shape but we think that it is still an important addition to the collection.

The second truck we acquired is a 1943 White M2 Scout car located in Flowell Utah. This truck was located two years ago, and we were finally able to purchase it today. This is also a major project which will take a whole bunch of time to complete. All the armor on the rear half of the truck is missing so we will have to either manufacture new armor or locate original.

Finally, we have located a Gamma Goat which we are working toward acquiring. We will keep you informed as we get closer to having this important piece of history become part of the Freedom Vehicles collection.
