This is a little departure from my usual presentations. This car is not something you’d likely find on the local highways and alleys. However, if you live in the grace of heaven. Why? Gamma Goat and M561 is a military vehicle. As follows.
And the M561 1.25 ton High Mobility cargo truck was built in late 1960 and in 1970 by Consolidated Diesel Electric Company, known as CONDEC. Was nicknamed the Gama Goat, “Gamma” from the name of the inventor of the common energy provided Roger Gamaunt and “goats” from the mountain goats abilites such as off-road.
M561 was 6×6 and the presence of a tractor-trailer unit. Tractor sat two, and the driver and a passenger, over the front axle, which stands behind it and the Detroit Diesel 3-53 diesel engine. Attached to the tractor by a joint unit is clearly the trailer, which was the military arrangements, like many of the standard type of pickup bed with the addition of troopseats folding along each side. The tractor-trailer and joined permanently. Tractor was the front axle and rear axle, while the trailer has launched in the mid-axis. All hubs were powered. And M561 has also been directed four wheels, and led the front in a normal fashion and most of the rear axle was a mechanic and drove in the opposite direction by 50 percent for the front motion axes. Self-direction, not position. The M561 was made of aluminum, and the car was swimable on inland waters. This car able to move higher than average, as a small truck or jeep 1/4ton because of its ability to flex in the middle, and the position forward of the front wheels.
The Gamma Goat was a successful way in the off-road, but due to the emergence of the plague of mechanical problems, engine noise loud, was the driver while the car start and debarking, the training of drivers in particular because of its four-wheel habits that he did not pursue in the coming decades, and was eventually replaced in the function of a series M998 HMMWV (High Mobility Multi-Wheeled Vehicles) or Home “vee”. For this reason, the surplus can be gamma goats in varying degrees of disrepair and can be purchased for a song and to restore and put into use. There is a small group of loyal fans and goat GamaGoat.com dedicated to preservation, restoration and enjoyment of these vehicles safe for attention.
One of the things that sets the exception of goat gamma military vehicles and other off-road and amphibious nature. Certainly, can not be home – vee (both HMMWV military and H1S much tamer commercial and H2S) Ford several feet of water, but may in fact goat swimming. Of course, it can not water that Ford is not cool, so you can not cross the raging torrent. But you can easily across the lake, as long as you make the necessary preparations to get ready for a goat pool and a proper maintenance thereafter.
