I got this info from military.com weekly email...thought I'd pass it on.
Beginning in March, GovPlanet, which started selling military Humvees in 2014, will be the "exclusive source" for a fleet of retired ITVs and MTVRs, according to GovPlanet's website.
The M1161 ITV Growler is a 4x4 "jeep-style" vehicle with a Navistar 2.8-liter diesel, 132-horsepower engine. It is approximately 13.5 feet long, 5 feet wide, and 6 feet high. The ITV was developed by the American Growler company in 1999 and entered into service with the Marine Corps in 2009 as a utility, scout or fast-attack vehicle, according to a GovPlanet press release.
The MTVR is a 6x6, seven-ton cargo truck with a Cat C12 diesel, 410-horsepower engine. It is approximately 26 feet long, 8 feet wide, and 11.5 feet high. The MTVR entered into production in 2005 and is still in regular operation with the Navy and Marine Corps as a prime mover for the M777 howitzer, as well as troops, fuel, water and a wide variety of other equipment, the release states. _________________ 1951 M38 MC 22731
