For all those that have enquired, I'm told that the H.M.K, the
Norwegian Military Vehicle Club, are auctioning off their stocks of
Jeep and Weasel parts this weekend, (7th / 8th June) and that the
intention is to auction off the remaining Dodge and GMC spares some
time in the not too distant future.

I dont have detailled information (just a car full of original Dodge
spares this week, mostly for my Carryalls) but it would seem likely
that European dealers would buy most of it and put it up for resale, so
if you need anything from that stock dont leave it too much longer. I
was at the Oslo store this weekend (where the Dodge and GMC stuff is)
and the volume has reduced by about 50% in the last year, with most of
the 'desirable' stuff already gone. There is a lot of 'hardware' left,
typically rebuild kits for things that dont go wrong like governors and
shock absorber links, with some late Norwegian reproduction stuff and
some very early odds and ends like GMC early civilian gauges. Please
dont ask me for further info as I work in Norway very irregularly and
I'm not likely to be back before the rest of the stuff is auctioned.
Best bet would be a Norwegian / Scandinavian list member or one of the
European dealers that buys up stock. Gordon McMillan, (poor but
happy) Bergen, Norway. 8-)
