The Navy got most of these trucks. They have a special intake-exhaust manifold on those trucks, and not much, if anything interchanges with civy trucks. You need to try the MVPA web site for value. Because it's military, the values are tough to ascertain. It's a small segment of the collecting hobby and most people don't think they have much value. If you were to want to sell it, you'd have to stick to that segment to get any real money. They came in a cargo truck version and a bomb service truck for moving bombs out to the aircraft. It had a hoist system with a long center rail that extended past the rear of the truck. It had a trolley and a chain fall on the rail. THe name, "Burma Ford Jeep" was because the grille was similar to the early Ford produced Jeep, model GPW, those also had the slat grille. There are not many left now, as most were sold off surplus to construction companies. Many were used in California on the big produce farms and ranches. I restored military trucks for 22 years and only saw 2 in the hands of collectors out here in the east. Try www.mvpa.com .
Not sure if they have them here in Southern Cal (I noticed it says you in Redondo), but I know there is a Military Vehicles club in the Phoenix area, and they hold a show yearly in Phoenix. Check out www.armytrucks.org for info, and the link given in the last post should be www.mvpa.org, not .com
