I saw this on the travel channel the other night and if I get a chance to visit Boston in the warmer months, I want to do this.

did you know why these vehicles are called dukws?


D = First year of production code "D" is for 1942

U = Body style "U" utility truck (amphibious)

K = Front wheel drive. GMC still uses that on trucks today (K5 Chevy Blazer)

W = Two rear driving wheels (tandem axle)

They were used in amphibious landings during WWII. I have family members that rode in them.
