M1123 Restoration, Help!


New member
Hello Everyone!

I’m new to the forums and new to all of this in general. I have little mechanic experience but I’m hoping to do as much of this restoration that I can, by myself!

The M1123 that I’ve purchased was missing quite a few parts, drivetrain, electrical, and some interior. I’m mainly concerned with getting it moving under its own power so it will be easier to work on and store.

I will post some pictures of the engine bay. There are some parts that I have identified as missing but I want to make sure I get everything in the right order.

Not the best angle, but the parts I can name off hand are:

Radiator Shroud
Trans/Oil Cooler
Coolant Reservoir
Washer fluid reservoir
Serpentine Belt
Engine Fan


Gauge Cluster (wires were cut so that should be fun)
Wait Light
Three Lever Switch
Turn Signal Switch
Parking Brake
Gas pedal (both the actual pedal face and it has no linkage behind it)

I would really appreciate it if someone could help me out by verifying that I’m correct and not missing anything. I know it’s a little work to do so….

Thank you for checking out my post!

But you have the fording control!!!

Seriously, time to post a parts wanted ad.
Yeah I do!!! Hahah

I have some of these parts already. The list is fairly extensive so I’m trying to buy them incrementally.

Have you seen good aftermarket replacements for the alternator and/or the oil cooler?
