Hi all,

Just purchased an Iltis today, making my (arguably insane) decade-old dream come true. I'm hoping I can learn a little more of the history of my new truck.

CFR 85-87240

It's got 12 RBC stenciled on the tarp, and 728 COMM SQN on two of the doors. I know 12 RBC is based out of Valcatraz and Trois Rivieres, and 728 Comm Sqn (now 37 Signals Regiment) is based out of Newfoundland & Labrador, and New Brunswick, but those could have come from anywhere. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Cheers!

Default Iltis 87240

Your Iltis was sold out of Valcartier in Aug 2005.

Thanks Ed! Any chance there is more info? As it was sold out of CFB Valcartier, I'm guessing it may have in fact been homed at some point with 12 RBC?

Also, a friend purchased an Iltis and M101 trailer at auction last year, I'm hoping you might have some good info for him too?

CFR 86628 (Iltis)
CFR 0329 (Trailer)

Thanks again!

Default Iltis Details

I did not record the full unit history for every Iltis on CF inventory, but it could well have been used by 12RBC.

86628 was also sold out of Valcartier at the same time as yours and M101CDN2 0329 was CFR 16726 and was disposed out of Land Force Western Area Training Centre - Wainwright in January 2004.

Default Looking for info about a M38A1

Hi, I'm looking about information on a strange looking M38A1. The seller said that it came like this from the army and it was not customized.
I'm still figure out how to post pics.

The nameplate read: Ordonnance 2230 delivered 12 30 52 model M38A1cnd contract demand lv 600 army
Serial number is something -200064

There is also a number on the dashboard: 5332210.

Can you tell me more about it? I'm new in the hobby. Does it worth something?

The engine is stuck and not in it right now.

Your M38A1CDN is strange looking because it was modified to mount the M40A1 Recoilless Rifle.

That is a parade and ceremonial Jeep. Back then they were known as vice-regal if I recall correctly. There is a similar one at 202 workshop.

Only a dozen or so were ever ordered. Small numbers compared to the rest of the contracts. As mentioned, they were kept aside for ceremonial purposes so the General or royalty could be moved around a large parade square quickly and with dignity. They were kept very clean and under cover, getting very little use except practises and test drives. Send pictures of the back end please.

Here is a link to the post where the 202 workshop ceremonial Jeep is shown. Looks like the exact same pattern.

There was a story about the history of these Jeeps in one of the old EME digests from the 80s. Some of them were converted from Jeeps that were write-offs. The pattern of the ceremonial Jeep changed in the 70s.

Frank
I believe there was also an M38 done up for the queen's visit. If I recall it also had the high pulpit in the back, but may have been a little "louder".

For some reason I have a couple pics of the one from Gagetown back in the day. CFR 32210 looks to be the one Frank v R is referring to. Wrench the motor back in, paint on some white walls, douse a rag in diesel to buff the paint, throw on your favorite sport coat with accoutrements and have a parade.

Default M38A1CDN Ceremonial

The vehicle in those Gagetown photographs was one of at least five ECC 121116 M38A1CDNs modified to ceremonial vehicles.

As well there were at least four ECC 121315 M38A1CDN3s modified as vice regal vehicles.

The question is, who did the coachwork on these Jeeps?

Default M38a1 cfr

Hi, I own a 1970 M38A1 CDN3 with the CFR 70-08892. Most of the EDR info for the jeep has been overwritten by that of another vehicle so I was going to do a "freedom of information" request to see what else the government still has on file for this vehicle but figured I'd first check here to see if anyone can share any info... Ed? Others? Thank-you!

Your M38A1CDN3 was disposed of out of CFB Toronto in August, 1998.

Thanks Ed but that can't be right... all of the info I have gathered soo far indicates disposal out of Toronto in 1986 which lines up with the ownership dates in my vehicle info package from MTO.

Finger issues on my part, should have been 1988; but there could have been an error when the date was input into the system so go with 1986 as per the MTO.

This just shows that even with primary source data there can be errors.

Often it seems to be a case of tidying up the paperwork some time after the actual disposal. I'm pretty sure I saw a 1986 date on that one when I looked it up along with the paperwork date of 88.
