Just got it home a few miniuts ago. It has a New Rebuilt Engine with new Carb, Military Water Proof Dist, Plug wires, plugs, water pump, fuel pump, cllutch ect. The transmission has just been gone thru and all new tires and a new spare too! I have all the parts in the bed to go on the front end and a 10,000 lb rated Braden Winch set up for the front end. Very happy with the new project. Mark H.

Mark,
Would you please take at least an afternoon off and drink a cold beer or something? You are wearing me out. (-;
(looks like a good project!)

Happened to be watching a Barret-Jackson auction this week and saw one of those sell for over 50K. And it didn't have doors!

If they are real clean they can sell for a whole bunch but you have to put a whole bunch into it!! I want to use this one and when I did my Power Wagon it was to nice to use the way it should have been. Mark H.

Looks like you got your fun cut out for ya for a while . What company makes that comet bow ? It isn't Bear is it ? Fred Bear Co. made bows about 30 miles from me for years then they moved to Fl. He hunted big game all over the world with bows . I bet he had some one with a high powered rifle behind him though.

PTO Driven Winch. I don't have a Snorkle but you can buy them still. I do have the Pioneer Kit for the tail gate that holds a shovel and ax. That Winch is Heavy! I figure close to 250 lbs at least with cable. Lots of new parts for the M-37 on EBay still. Mark H.

Those are easy, on line for 1,200.00 New long block from the Factory. I bought a rebuilt for 1,000.00 exchange for my Chevy Truck, should have just got a new one instead. Mark H.

Mark, did you buy this direct from the Government through their selling agent? Or, did you get it from a civilian. We get these 3/4 tons from time to time but generally speaking they are trash. Occasionaly a good one comes up at Ft. Meade or the Aberdeen Proving Ground. Have fun with your project........gfp

I got it for 1,600.00 privet party. He had bought it to restore and got into it and did the drive train and had to move to Texas so I got it. Hech he has over 1,600.00 into the engine alone! It will be a fun one because the drive train is done and I don't have to deal with that part. Mark H.

nice 37. some people have all the luck.are you a member of m.v.p.a.? i have a 1942 gpa and trailer that i play with.

I am not yet but it has a Sticker on the back of it from them. I do post on a few of the Forums that people who own them talk about them. Since the drive train is so nice I would like to keep and use this one for some off road and farm stuff. I have a 1980 Chevy 4X4 that gives me the same gas mileage but can't get around as good with out hurting it. I like the armor plated parts under it and the high ground clearance. It can also carry 2,000 lbs if needed. I would only use it around home and to go to town with once in a while which is 12 miles away thru the boonies. Sure could come in handy during our bad snow days!! Mark H.
