The Rare GMC DUKW Truck


The DUKW (known as a Duck) is a six-wheel-drive modified amphibious truck used by the US military during World War II and D-Day beaches of Normandy.

General Motors Corporation and Sparkman & Stephens designed this truck to transport troops and goods over land and water, but some enthusiasts have taken to restoring them and utilising them for leisure purposes such as this 1944 Duck boat owned by Winslow Bent.
