  • The M-29 Weasel

    Hi all!

    1947/48 and 49 I was station in Fairbanks ,Alaska.
    I was in the 10Th Air Sea Rescue Sqdn (Ground Rescue)
    One of my dutys was Driving the M-28 and M-29
    weasel on rescue missions . I drove the weasel in Mud,Snow, water
    in floods, on ice and in the streams and lakes .

    I could tell some long storys about me and my WEASEL .

    Sounds interesting! We'd sure read whatever you write

    Miscreant adrift in
    the BerStuda Triangle


    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

        Yore,

        Welcome to our little corner of sanity.

        First of all, let me thank you for your service in our military. It is a nobility many of us have not achieved and without which many of our taken for granted liberties would be scarce.

                It's not a joke, He's asking you to tell us some of your experiences with the M28-9s.

                    Yes indeed, Yore. Please do take the time to tell us of your Weasel adventures. As an owner of an operable Weasel, I'll be very interested. And if you can find your way to my place some time, you can take it for a spin.

                        And here's one on e-bay, "ready for restoration." Note: NO TRACKS!

                        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                            And no engine, no floors?, no transmission, no windshield, no final drive unit. Might be worth the opener as parts to make a rusty wreck good, but it'd be a sad choice to try to restore.

                            Restorable Weasels aren't all that hard to find; and it looks like repop tracks may soon be available, at a price[:0]
