CCKW At VFW Post Mesquite, Nevada

Post by Ernest Aguilar »

Was at my Fathers house over the weekend found this CCKW down at the local VFW hall, think it is a runner and may be up for sale soon.

Am I wrong or is that an M-series cargo body?

M-135 Body on what appears to be a LWB CCKW chassis set up for a van body. Am sure the Vets at the post were just as proud of it tho.

I am just as guilty. I put a M211 bed on my CCKW. Just 6 inches wider. This truck looks like the rear tires are 9 00 = 20s.

Truck has potential, whoever decides to fix it up should have deep pockets and anticiplte everything between the bumpers needing service and repair.
