The early 1950s GMC M-series trucks have always been some of my favorite soft skin military vehicles. Our little GMC M215 dump truck is getting a new freind, a 1953 GMC XM221 tractor. After finding one two years ago this truck has been in the back of my mind since I first saw it, finalized the deal today.
The M221 tractor uses the same short wheel base as the M215 dumper. This one is in running condition, very complete and even has its original paint. Will need complete restoration, but should be easier than some of the other vehicles I have completed.
Will post pictures next week after the recovery, now to find a M135!
