Looks good.

The wide picture of it on the lowboy makes it look tiny compared to the rest.

Yep, 5 of them....

Kinda hate to replace it, but I want to put it on the road, so new glass must be installed. I think I'll have it framed to show when I display the truck, and put those bullet hole decals on the new glass in the same locations.

Great looking WC. So what's the story of the bullet holes? The rest of the truck looks great so I assume it wasn't a derelict hulk out in a field serving as a target for bubba, and I just can't picture a WC63 rolling through the bad part of town catching some stray rounds.

Do not know the full story. A guy on G503 says he thinks it is a Norwegian import. At has a vintage head bolt block heater on a gas engine, so that fits. Owner I got it from, says he got it from a guy in Kanas. so not sure of the full past on it.

Your driver delivered the truck to the wrong address........ should have come to West Virginia HA HA. Our VFD had a M37 for years with winch which was as handy as pockets in bib overalls. Only problem you had to start toward the fire before it started to get there after the fire was put out. My friend has a M37 that I can repower for him with a Dodge engine I had saved for years. Good luck with your fine vehicle. I would take it through a drive through with a full crew on board to see the staff's faces. Near midnight we were recovering My M925A2 pulling a 20kw generator M105 trailer and went to McDonald's and the lobby door was open. We were told that the lobby was closed and we would have to order through the drive threw ...... My buddy pointed out the picture window and asked ..... DO YOU WANT US TO GO THROUGH THE DRIVE THREW WITH THAT WE WILL! The manager's eyes got big and then opened a register to take our order, we tried not to laugh until later. Happy motoring. Mark
