USAAF/USAF CCKW airfield F-3 refueling tank truck

The ones that I remember had Electric Brake Controls. The majority of those surplussed in the 50s were Chrome Yellow that were painted over OD. Many had the Insulated Hard Cab. The Closed Cab models were kept in inventory until the late 50s also.
I used to get a kick of how the USAF in the 50s would seal the doors and hood panels with the Red High Speed Tape that was also used to seal the gun ports of their fighter aircraft.
I still have Magneto Kits for some of the Briggs and Stratton Air Cooled Engines used in the USAAF Refueling Trailers.
