Smile M715 Dubai

Hi all, I have purchased a 1967 M715 which did undergo a bolt and nut restoration. I will post very soon some pics. The main highlights are Engine swap (now Dodge 5.9l V8 with OBD), A/C, 120L fresh water tank, 135L SS fuel Tank and fully converted to LED.
Was wondering if anyone here has a M715 in Dubai or UAE (United Arab Emirates) too?

First, welcome to the M715 Zone, the home of friendly, helpful and funny people. We look forward to your continued updates and pictures. Don't hesitate to ask, no question us insignificant. There are many here who have done swaps. I can't help in that direction but can help (as can many others) with stock suggestions.

Again, Welcome!

Thx for the warm welcome!
I have purchased her 2 years ago in TX and started the full restoration and imported to Dubai myself.
