Well guys, the first M-37 is sitting in my hangar and it already smells like liquid wrench :D Only took about 5 minutes to have both doors off. Cab looks good, no rust under the seats, battery box is solid and lower corners are solid. Two rust thru spots each side of the cab vent but it's flat metal so should be easy to fix. I'm gonna remove the cab, take it down to get blasted then fix the rust. Bed is great except tailgate and right side panel (got dented bad). Great that it comes apart...should be salvagable. No engine or drivetrain, rear diff is gutted, old Jeep rearend strapped to the front so it'll roll...it's a sorry sight BUT...it's pure gold to me.

Ryanero, i have seen worse that turned out to eye catchers, just time and patience and some monies but the first 2 are the key, trust me i know this, cause i can see my deuce already with new paint, and as they say if you can imagine it you can make it happen.
GOOD LUCK WITH IT

Thanks Wyattearp....half the fun is cleaning it up and looking for "treasures" under the seats etc. The other one should be here tomorrow or Saturday...what fun. Thanks for the vote of support.

Parts Truck?

ryanaero,
