M3a1 White Scout Cars surviving

Post by Dawgman » Mon Sep 09, 2019 9:02 pm

Does anyone have an approximate count of the remaining M3a1 WSCs in existence? I know of about roughly 4 to 6 being restored in the US to various degrees right now.

I guess you could count the ones in the database at the top of this forum. New ones are posted periodically as they are found and restos begin.

On the White scout car appreciation Facebook page I estimated that there is a minimum of about 25 being restored around the world at the moment.Total being restored is probably more. I don’t know the total number of restored vehicles but there are many nice ones there.

I would go with 50 to 100 examples globally - there are quite a few in Europe.

There are 3 within 30 miles of my home... including mine

I think there are many more than that surviving, just look at the serial number list compiled on this forum, and that’s not all. I would not be surprised if there were 400-500 restored and restorable original cars remaining, or more. There are @195 cars listed in the database with about 25 more added in the thread roughly. How many more haven’t been reported?
