Sometime back in 1977, what is generally remembered to be a white Jeep Wagoneer was parked in a garage in Truro, MA, near the tip of Cape Cod. “I’m not even sure it’s a Jeep.”A neighbor with better recall seems to think it’s a white Jeep Wagoneer, and others seem to remember the Jeep driving on the beach. That Jeep and the garage it was in were filled and covered in sand from a shifting dune, and have remained entombed, like the great Pharaoh AMCenaten, for four decades. His mother owns the Jeep, which has been entombed for 40 years in a wind-blown and sand-filled garage at 135 South Pamet Road. The Jeep’s owners, the Musnuff family, had wanted to free the Jeep for years, but for beach erosion reasons, the town would not let them remove the sand.

40 Years After Being Buried in Truro Dune, Jeep to be Removed
TRURO –After being entombed for 40 years in a sand-filled garage in Truro, a Jeep Wagoneer will finally see the light of day on Friday. The town asked the Musnuff family to move the Jeep as the shifting dune at Ballston Beach covers beach parking spaces and is causing environmental concerns. Palmer said that the cost of removing the Jeep from the dune will be paid for by the family. In response, the town has to take up part of the parking lot, which is adjacent to where the Jeep and garage are. Palmer said that each year the town has a huge over wash in the town’s parking lot, and there was a man-made dune to protect the parking lot which also shielded and protected the garage and Jeep.
(AP) — A Jeep that has been stuck inside a Massachusetts sand dune for 40 years is set to be removed. The Cape Cod Times reports (http://bit.ly/2kRGjsH ) the Jeep Wagoneer is entombed in a garage in Truro that became overtaken by the dune decades ago. Musnuff says the family has wanted to get the Jeep out of the collapsing garage for years but the town wouldn’t let them move the sand due to concerns about the dune system. He says he began visiting in the 1970s and has never seen the Jeep driven. Town officials recently changed their approach to the shifting sands and asked the family to remove the vehicle.
