Default my badass 1952 M37 barn find

1952 M37 barn find it runs awesome, very very little rust! all it needs is to unfreeze the back brakes and fix the brake lines. i bought it today and i am going to pick it up tomorrow. i cant believe how nice this thing is and how well everything works for sitting in a guys yard for 20 years. i will get lots of pics up tomorrow

Whatever you do, PLEASE dont chop it to make it an offroad rig..... Restore it and keep it original. I can get you information for any of the parts.

I love those trucks, wish I had more room to park green iron @ the house.! Just don't wind them up to clear the mud outa the tires...every single one I've ever seen with a blown motor had mud all over the tires/axles! Those old motors will not tolerate high revs....nice find!

It's not, I went and looked at it, the entire body is rotted, it needs all new glass, etc. I was going to buy it to tow the boat.
