Back around the end of last year I picked up something I wasn't quite ready to tell you all about 1f609.png;) A few of you knew I picked this setup up but I figured I throw it out there to share.

 

A compressor and a tank!

 

I'd been on the hunt for a compressor for a few years but wasn't willing to pay the asking price or didn't have the funds when looking otherwise. I never dreamed I'd find a tank to go with it let alone the set in one swoop 1f642.png:)     Here it is. I need to get it mounted and some pictures up at some point.

I have a tank like that. I picked it up at the dump 40 years ago. A friend who was a US army Air Corps mechanic in WWII told me it was from the air supply system, for breathing at high altitudes, used in bombers. Sears made use of a lot of surplus supplies after WWII. Their trailers had jeep wheels and tires. The surplus stuff was available until the Korean War started. Good Luck, Rick

There is still some of it out there.  Last fall my neighbor got hold of an old tan camo 6 X 6.  Put a feeder box on it to feed cattle.  Has some 3 miles from the silage pit.   That thing is about unstoppable.

Is it a Studebaker? Most were. If your neighbor needs parts there may be a place in Mass. that can help. 25 years ago they had warehouses full of WWII jeep and truck parts. I don't even remember what area it was but i suspect it was Worechester, MA. Good Luck, Rick
