History
Built for Signal Corps. Actually my second, replacing an earlier one I had for 16 years. This one was a low-time unit (probably retired early due to a starter problem) with only 183 hours on it but had been sitting in a field (with a bush growing right up through it) for a few decades. Cut it free and bought it for parts, but when I got it home and cleaned it up I concluded it could actually be restored to pristine and, since my other unit (identical, with serial number 103 earlier) had over a thousand hours I figured I'd make the best of both and sell the remainder... for more than all my costs for the upgrade.
