The GMC CCKW 353, also known as ‘Jimmy’ or ‘Deuce-and-a-half’ (deuce-and-a-half because it can carry 2.5 tonnes).

GMC Troop Carrier

The GMC CCKW 353 (or 'Jimmy' as they are probably better known) in this picture was used by the British army in 1644 - 45. Again this was bought having already had a diesel conversion and now runs a Perkins Diesel engine. Since it has been in our collection it has had a partial re-wiring, full re-spray and a new clutch. This Jimmy is also fully road registered and can still be seen cruising the streets on it;s way to any of the local military shows and re-enactments.
