BIG BROTHER-LITTLE BROTHER

Post by Ben Dover » Fri Nov 18, 2016 6:47 pm

Rare peek into my CCKW and a sneak peek at my 1958 M-37B.
I forgot I took these pics. My CCKW is a work in progress.
These pics are 2008 vintage, since then the CCKW has a few more parts swapped or added to make it more correct.
Note the NOS original seat back cushion, I set it aside back in the 60's for the day I would have a CCKW, the bottom is one of the Vinyl Covers from Weebie.
I converted the front BO Markers to the early louvered type (courtesy of Midwest Military) and installred a NOS Symmetrical Grill with the BOD Lamp bracket, drivers mirror now has the door hinge bracket, Pioneer Tools are now on Driver side, the window cranks are now OD color, and just for the heck of it, the Heater Switch is now a GM flip type and not the rotating type. Found an H-700 keyed Glove Box Lock and will soon add a NOS Locking outside door handle for the RH Door. Am always looking for that perfect set of data plates for the cab
I also have added the name CWO Joe DeROCHE below the passenger window. Joe spent 3 years island hopping in the Pacific with 43rd Division, 152nd Artillery. The truck will soon have 1941-early 1942 era 152nd Field Artillery markings on the doors.
Two things I am looking for are a matching set of data plates and one more CCKW SWB Spare Tire Lock.

That Good Driver Decal, not WWII, but it has a place in the hearts of those who drove MV's in the Army and kinda makes me feel at home when I climb into my MV's.

The M-37B1 is rarely driven and I have plans to paint it Strata Blue in 2017.I have owned the CCKW(Danish Army) since 1983 and the M-37B1 since 1989.
