    Not just one 4 door wagon, but he had two that I could find.

    He restores and repairs them, but don't judge a yard by it's junk. Here's his very clean shop.

    That tracked vehicle is a WW2-vintage M7 Allis Chalmers snow tractor.

    Wisconsin. All of it. It's mine.
    Friends, what you are looking at is an Allis Chalmers M7 Snow Tractor, built during WW2 for search and rescue work in the great white north. Willys L-134 engine, Warner T-84 transmission, Spicer 18 transfer case. 291 built in 1943, maybe 30 left in the world.
    It's supposed to have a pair of surfboard sized skis under the front wheels, and came with a enclosed and heated tagalong sled for ambulance work.
    Oh, I want - no, no, I COVET that machine.
