Collecting antique military vehicles is gaining popularity, as is those looking to admire the vintage vehicles. In fact, it’s hard not to notice when these vehicles make their way to shows, many of which are driven and not merely trailer queens.
“I stopped for gas and a lady came up to me and said, ‘Is that really a jeep?’ I said, ‘Yes, ma’am, it is.’ She was really surprised,” Hildebrant said. Encounters like that are to be expected when you’re driving a six-wheel 1943 Dodge jeep.
Market of Marion will be showcasing military vehicles this weekend. Remember, it’s never too late to get involved with military vehicle collecting. Many vendors offer ways to purchase used military vehicles for almost any collectors budget.
