For sale 1945 DUKW

Post by jeffl » Sat Nov 07, 2020 8:50 pm

Fantastic DUKW. We put 50 hrs on her last year on our lake and 35 hrs this year. We had her out on Lake Erie too last year. She drives and swims fantastic. We were out today in 70 degree weather. Greentown PA. $75,000
We are putting her away for the season. Stop by for a swim, quick.

We certainly enjoy her but I had spied another project to pick up and sort through. Of the 100 classic cars I have owned over the years the DUKW has been the most rewarding.

We have about 50 hrs on her the first year, because of the DDay WWII Conneaut Ohio event and about 35 hrs last year.

The fire department dive team had put all of the safety pipes on the back and we have since removed them. They also made the cut outs on the bulk heads to make it easier not to trip.

There is a island just off the boat ramp from our development that we drive up on and picnic. Just the perfect setup to own a DUKW.
