Notice this one is painted the same, black bumper, brush guard, turn signal plates, wheels. Roll bar is same as well. Doesn't have the same door markings.

This one is all yellow, but has the same green door markings.

These are all similar:

There's more, but this is representative of the ex. forestry trucks.

Yep. Indeed it does look like they were all from the same shop. Cool! I finally found my (ex)truck's family!

Hello 1953, and all. I also got one of the yellow 715s out of Wis. Mine was the one with the spare tire and the 100 amp alt setup.. It runs and its got a knock coming from the bell housing. I pulled the inspection cover and the fly wheel wobbles. I can see that one flywheel to crank bolt is missing and assume others are loose. I orderd a set of bolts from Memphis equipment today. I will tear it down on Sunday. My friend named the truck THE UGLY YELLOW DUCK.. Seems fitting. It is yellow and its ugly. Totaly rust free and its perfect for us. Looks like more fun. Joe

In my glove box was the build sheet/ manual from the Montana DNR it lists all the changes done to the truck and has the blueprints for the hardtop build and the rollbar .. I can scan and post the 30 page manual . It also lists part numbers ect. It was a great find. Joe

Hope my truck is in as good shape as yours? Will find out soon, got a call last night and found a truck to pick-up the M and bring her to Maine. Should have her by the 1st of next week.

Great way to end the year!

Happy New Year everyone
Andrew

And the build sheet/Montana DNR stuff that might not be of general interest here would be of great interest to me. If you wouldn't mind, I'd love to get a PDF of that: timulator at gmail dot com
