Also, I had never seen this particular vehicle. (referring to the Walter) I found some more pictures. Must be the same magazine pics. Numbers on hood match.

I just noticed that the Bantam jeep lost it "TEST ##" plate some where along the way. Must have fallen off when they landed from jumping it.. :lol:
