M-34 Trucks

Post by MSG 2/36th »

Hi Guys,

I am a "newbie" here so please bear with me. I am looking to find out the service life of the M-34 Truck. Also any model variations, like dump bodies, Van bodies and canvas or metal cab roof. They seem similar to the M-35 Multi-Fuel Trucks. I do know that most if not all M-34s were gasoline engines and manual transmissions while the M-35s had some with automatics and others with manual trasmission?

Thanks!

M-34 was the six wheel cargo version of the REO family of 2 1/2 ton 6X6 trucks, 10 wheels were M-35.
GMC built the Single wheeled M-135 2 1/2 ton Hydramatic, Cargo Truck the 10 wheeler Hydramatic GMC Cargo was the M-211.
Some of us still speak 6X6 with the best of them.

The Steel Soldiers forum seems to have a lot of M-series owners:

Frankly, all that new-fangled M series truck technology makes my head spin. :)

Lots of newcomers on there discovering 6 wheel drive, and talking the whistler thing. Nice truck, but a lot of young owners will discover 30 years from now that it was very bad for their ears.
