Finally got my first mv and it couldn't be sweeter. It's a 42 352 and its 3.5 hours away. I was wondering if you fine fellas could give me some dimensions on it. I need to know the exact width because my buddy says he can bring it home but his gooseneck is only eight feet wide.

I want to say it is around 7.5 feet x 25 foot long. Don't know why those numbers are in my head.

Short wheel base without winch, they were mainly used to haul artillery. I had two CCKWs, a closed cab that I LOVED!!! and a very rear air transportable open cab CCKW (it was designed to be taken apart to fit into two C47s).
Great trucks, a little on the lite side for hauling, you will love the truck.
One of the few, Frank USMC RET

Congratulations! Whats her name? She looks nice....why don't you just drive her home. Sounds like a nice drive to get to know her.

We have logged thousands of miles on ours in the 21 years we have had her.

Cheers!

I would remove the canvas, if the trip will be at highway speeds.
It will save some wear and tear, or possible destruction if the canvas is very old.

Thanks everyone for the enthusiasm. The canvas is pretty new but yes we are going to remove it. It runs sweet too. It starts faster than a brand new truck. Should have it in about a week or a week and a half.

Wow - NICE looking MV!! I'd vote for a leisurely drive home if you have the time. Enjoy your new ride!

SD T16: I've had the pleasure of riding in Plain Jane Doe many times! :) I've known your parents for over over a decade. I met them when I was a member of the FFC. Did you have to use her during all of the flooding in NPR?

Got her home safe. Had some play time out on the field roads yesterday evening.
She actually has a couple issues. It likes to fall on its face when you go to take off or put a load on the engine. that's the biggest thing
