1939 TF 1.5 ton 4 x 2 civilian type, though the standard vehicle was bought by the army, and probably the Civilian Conservation Corps too.

That particular truck probably wasn't on an army contract, as it has the California headlight mount so will be an LA plant build, but may well have been impressed to service as that does look like OD. Nice truck - would fix.

What do you mean I should get out more ? ...... :thumbup:
