    Tall cargo cover

    Canada issued its M35s as the MLVW, and tall tarps like yours were standard. There are cargo and cage versions. The same tarp fits either one, and yes it is easier to stand inside. However, they were all standard dark green not camouflage.

    What makes the Chrysler V8 different in a V100?

    Folks, I haven't posted in a while but was reminded by the principle of the Cold War Collection group that he wants to source a spare powerpack for the V100 sn 10799. I mentioned that the Chrysler 361 is not the same as an automotive engine because it is reverse rotation. That got everyone's...

    tree vs. cucv m1008

    You've admitted to being emotionally attached, and politely I'd say that was your first mistake. You're using this as a truck, a spare vehicle in the yard, and as a learner for young drivers. It is doing exactly what you need. The whole CUCV family was intended to be repaired with off-the...

    Cadillac Gage V100 and V150 transfer case

    Coming to the conversation late, but where in the sequence of production would this kind of eccentricity be introduced? The only place I can think is when the centre hole was bored.

    Possible source for dual use M151 parts

    I am only passing along likely correct information, which due to snow accumulation, cold and "stuff" in the way cannot be immediately verified. We just had a foot of new snow yesterday, and the snow shelter is further from the doors and driveway and therefore a lower shovelling priority. But...

    Possible source for dual use M151 parts

    From another forum, its has been claimed that the M151 family engines were made by White as Hercules G1600 series. Furthermore, Caterpillar put a private label on their version, calling it at CTCAT 1404. It was installed in their forklifts and towmotors. The difference apparently is the head...

    Tires FWIW, this is the quote from a 1967 factory brochure. The chevrons are very similar to a farm tractor tires'. In fact a brand known as Mohawk Chiefs is a recognized substitute for the now-51 year old originals.

    Interior paint colour for V100?

    Now, not to doubt anyone, but is there a period reference document for this? Statistically, this group may seem significant, but there were high hundreds of V100s delivered. (As one commentator messaged me, a lot of contemporary photographs were brightened by flashes or sunbleached.)

    3 fire dpt M548s w/glamour shots

    Two things - I went to the link equipment provider's page. Why the 4" tubing exoskeleton on some vehicles? Do the operators expect to push down buildings or move trees? Secondly, the loan vs ownership dilemma is well known to Cadillac Gage V100 owners. The vehicles are wheeled, but are 1/4"...
