Amphibious DUKW for Sale, At a Price


A 1945 amphibious DUKW, also known as DUCK is going under the hammer at eBay.  The DUKW is an amphibious version of a 2 1/2 ton General Motors truck.  Somehow, the owner managed to get hold of a sixty-year-old amphibious vehicle that had only been used for 300 miles.  It is an ex-USMC model of a type that was used to deliver supplies to ships at sea.  Most of the parts are original and there is some minor surface rust, but it is in working order, which is quite a feat for a vehicle of its age.

Unfortunately, for the vast majority of us who are under-funded, bidding is already at $50,000.  With a few more days to go on the auction, it is going to get even higher, oh well.
