1942 Merchant Marine Motor Pool

Recommended Posts

I was tempted to post this image in the thread on Prewar & Postwar Collections, but it didn't fit the spirit of that topic. It shows the Merchant Marine Motor Pool at North Chicago's Great Lakes Naval Training Center, circa 1942.

Metaphorically speaking, I wouldn't kick any of these vehicles out of bed, as there isn't a dog among them.

The sort of an instant collection that would make most anyone proud, it certainly floats my boat!

Packard, Town and Country and Oldsmobile are all 1942. When was the last time you saw a 1942 Town and Country... or a 1942 Oldsmobile woodie???

And 5th from the left is a '41-'42 Chevy Suburban Carryall... another rare beast.

The '42 Chrysler "barrel-back" Town & Country would be my favorite, although the Packard Ambulance with the dual sidemounts is pretty neat too !
