THE STORY IS BASED ON THE REAL LIFE JOURNAL OF PRIVATE RALPH HELLER WHO SERVED ON THE WESTERN FRONT DRIVING THE U.S. M1917 IN COMBAT – GET THE BOOK, IT IS A GREAT STORY.

LOTS OF NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED PICTURES ALSO MY AMBULANCE IS FEATURED ON PAGE 49. I AM HONORED TO HAVE MY AMBULANCE IN THIS BOOK.

​​1918 MAUSER ANT-TANK RIFLE  T-GEWEHR 

The worlds first Anti Tank Gun. Developed to kill allied armor on the Western Front in 1918. I just purchased a T-Gewehr that was in a house fire. All the wood was destroyed and the rest left in ashes. This extremely rare weapon will be restored to museum display quality. This will show you exactly what the WW1 Preservation Collection can do.  D.L. O'Neal

​The News

​​U.S. Army M1917 Ambulance -

An "extinct" vehicle that David L. O'Neal spent years researching and finally re-created in 2011. A real life Jurassic Park story for a military vehicle.

I have spent years collecting and displaying military artifacts, I have found many items that were in very poor condition, not worthy of display. I can fix that. I can give these artifacts new life, and give them a prominent place in any collection.

​​1907/12 SCHWARZLOSE AUSTRIAN HEAVY MACHINE GUN -

This WW1 Axis water cooled machine gun has years of multicolored paints and a poor restoration finish that will be removed. It was also modified to have a longer barrel sometime during its military career. My intention at this time is to restore the MG back to its original length, and research a German WW1 Camouflage pattern for the painted finish. (yes i am going to do this...as a winter project)
