Default M715 Finland

Greetings from Finland.
I bought the M715 model year 1968. I am starting to restore it. I would ask you if you have any information about tailgate marking?



The seller told me that truck likely was in the service at Fort Sill Oklahoma. And was surplused in the late 70's and donated as surplus to the Frederick, Oklahoma Fire Department where it was used as a back up fire truck.

Now I would like to ask about markings.
5-3, US ARMY 3G2202, HQ129

thank you.

That truck looks amazingly stock with nice tailgate without the ubiquitous "dent", bumperettes, black-out lights and shackles. Hard to find a unmolested truck that went through a VFD.

Thanks, I've been looking for a suitable car for more than three years. In January I bought this and now after half a year it finally arrived The car is not any extra added, it is not very much missing. The engine runs very clean.



The only mistake in body is the collapse of the front fender.

Looks like a great solution, well done! Now we need to find somebody who can print larger?

Nice pic.
That's way to make progress.
Pretty soon you will be done, and looking for another project to satisfy your green fever.

Your paint mask set is all done and ready to ship. once I see your parts arrive from Memphis Equipment, I'll get it all boxed up and on it's way across the big pond.
