The Cadillac Gage V-100 was designed using as many “off the shelf” military parts as were available to reduce manufacturing costs and to streamline military servicing in the field.
The V-100 originally saw no use by the US Army during the early Vietnam War, but was commonly used (to great effect) by the South Vietnamese Army. The US noted this, and soon brought the V-100 into service for their own needs.
Used primarily in an Armed Convoy Escort role, the V-100 was used extensively all over South Vietnam during the late 1960s and early 1970s. The Society’s example is no exception, being shipped to serve in Vietnam in late 1969 and returned to the US in 1972.
A powerful armoured car with a V8 engine, weighing in at 8 tons and with room for a crew of five or more, the V-100 had the speed, armour, and firepower to protect most supply convoys during the war.
Canada’s newly purchased TPAV Armoured Reconnaissance Vehicle is the grandson of the V-100, demonstrating the effectiveness of this simple and robust design.
