Early vs Late Wheels

The keen eyed amongst you may have spotted that in the first post showing photos of the M3A1 Scout being collected there were two different types of wheels on the truck. On one side there are the standard late style split rim wheels seen on most M3A1 Scout Cars and on the other side are the early banded rims. I knew sourcing two more of either rim was going to be a challenge but luckily the “Facebook Appreciation Group for M3A1 Scout Cars” came through! A great Italian guy, called Antonio, posted having a pair of early rims for sale which had previously been fitted to a Halftrack. A deal was struck and we agreed to meet in Belgium, at the Ciney Military Fair, which was a great opportunity for me to continue the search for even more parts!
