I would guess not only military went to a gov DSO. Other federal agencies went to that DSO as well?

U13 Marti report

If my Marti Report says under Your vehicle was equipped with the following features,- Glassed and Framed Doors- but says nothing about a top does that mean it didn't come with one? Thanks,, I'm just getting started and this forum is a great help.

Hi Tony and Welcome! You may have a roadster. Are the first 3 VIN digits start with U13?

I work at Wright-Patt so I may start going on hunting trips on my lunch break

Every time I go to my local yard there are a couple vehicles I just sit and stare at, wishing I could bring them back to life...a USMC Fairlane and an AF Falcon/Econoline van.

I did not realize so many members owned military Broncos, i'd been thinking they were all lost or left overseas to rot. thanks again -Jeff

hey Slim , I just found out how to reply, sorry,, yes it is a U13 roadster and military, I haven't found out which branch it served yet. I have been looking at lots of pics and all the front bumpers I see have curved ends,, mine are straight, aftermarket maybe? I know the previous owner made the back bumper. I listed it with U13roadster web site if you can look at my bumper and see what you think,, thanks

I take it that there's not a military ID plaque on the dash? If possible check up under the dash with a flashlight and look up as far as you can see for the original color remaining. If the dash has been swapped or removed for paint, it won't help but that's the most reliable place to find original paint imo. Hopefully there's a military color there still.
