    When I was a young sub-lieutenant in the Canadian Forces reserves, I spent many an hour riding in the back of what we called an MLVW or "ML" for short, basically an M35 made by Bombardier with some winterization. Brings back some memories... not all good!

    I saw this truck on GP and I'm happy one of our members picked her up, and not some construction company, or scrap hauler. Looks like a good clean Viet Nam era truck. I noticed the unique mirror mounts, never seen any quite like that before. Are the tanks for fuel, water, weed killer???

    Water, I believe the truck was adapted for use in firefighting somewhere, it had been painted red as well. Someone pointed out the tanks may be from water-buffalo trailers, the water tank version of the M35 has a single tank.

    Those are just 600gal pods. They can be used for fuel or water. water buffalo tanks are round. They are cheaply found and adaptable for firefighting using so the forest service and volunteer units use them for water trucks offroad.
