Definitely converted Halftracks, also tell by the rear side armor is the same height front to back, scout car armor rolls down.
Wonder how they mounted the rifle in the back corner? Guessing it is a 106?

There are plenty of pictures of duals mounted on scout cars, so that mod is not out of the question.

You can even see the side storage box door and storage box itself. Bet this picture would mess up a few halftrack guys minds. Would you say Korean?

I bet this would be cheaper to do, than pay for tracks. Definitely make it more driver friendly, and able to take a longer trip. More pictures would be great so you can figure out the spare tire rack mounted on the rear.

I heard these were in Colombia.

Yeah, dirt cheap compared to a S/C. I went around the ads last night out of curiosity. I think for about 20K I could acquire a project H/T, buy the repo rear armor and have a basic driver. YMMV.

That is the Columbian Army with the converted halftracks to scout cars and they did manage to get many of the diesel, Buda scout cars
