Well, we are officially addicted to MVs now. I guess Army Bob is not enough, because Mr. Gimli has spied what he believes is the cilivian version of M 715 in our neighbor's back yard. It runs, kinda. He used to haul garbage with it, but it has sat for several months now.
A couple questions for you M715 guys:
1) Did the military trucks all have the soft top with the funky side windows?
2) What is a J-cab?
3) Is it blasphemy to paint a cilivian jeep truck in OD and call it a M715 clone? We would make our own military style bed, make the fenders, etc., etc, but to change the cab would be just too much time and $$$ right now. (Tho Mr Gimli would love to try)
4) Any idea how much $$$ a true M715 cab ONLY would be and are they available? That would be easier to replace the cab than to modify the original. $$$ plays a part there, tho..
Thanks for your help. I already have the feeling this truck will end up in our backyard soon no matter what....
(Actually, I think it may be a great daily driver for me!!!! )
