Wrecked and damaged trucks and jeeps, salvaged from the war zones in the Pacifc, are reconditioned in New Zealand motor assembly factories. Story of Allied Co-operation, the United States Army and the New Zealand Motor Industry transformed a supply of combat vehicles in the South Pacific. The restoration of these used vehicles was carried out at Ford Motors, Seaview, Wellington. General Motors rebuilt 2.5 ton trucks, New Zealand was used for replacements where required. Todd Motors plant handled 3/4 ton weapon carriers, all plants were subjected to procedures and scrutiny before being handed over to Automotive Reclamation Section. 3000 vehicles were restored and returned to the Pacific War Zone.
