wow. :shock: thats got to be rare as hens teeth.
have you put it up on the cckw forum?
I'm guessing you havent had any luck locating the truck part.
any idea what part of the scr-268 equipment it housed?

I would imagine they are fairly rare. I actually have three of them, the interiors are just basically blank nothing much to show inside. I don't know much about the functionality of the units. I have run across a couple of the White trucks but I need another project like I need a hole in my head :-) It seems like there are a lot more big truck projects out there than there are people willing to take them on.

the scr-268 had a couple 2 or 3 configurations
my suspcion is that the the k-56 was for the rectifier.
for SCR-268-B
but I dono the k-60 seems to be mentioned a lot with the late version.
I havent been able to find anything on vehicle configuration.

Contact Chris Thomas "Chris T" on this board and CCKW. He has a picture that I have seen of the complete K-56.

this is from the navy site, its the only "picture" I'v found.

http://www.history.navy.mil/library/online/radar-5.htm

unfortunatly thay dont say which vehicle is which.

well, so I guess there are 2 known k-60 vans and you could put togeather
a K-56, but to my knoledge, (which aint much), there arent any surviving
antinna rigs. although you could probably find a haywagon trailer and build a mockup.

project any one?
