It's a very nice truck Rickf.
I'm sorry, but I use it to read and write the google translate.

Now if I can only get it! The trucking company is screwing with me. They were supposed to have picked it up by now and the last I heard they did not even have a truck assigned to it yet! All those damn snowbirds coming back from Fla., you cannot find a car transporter anywhere. They don't drive, they flt up and have their cars transported.

Well, you could spend a little time and tell us something more about it while we're all waiting!

The guy running the place is the one selling me the truck, I am good thanks. It is being picked up on Tuesday. I think the guy delivering it has been to your rally, he is a Steel Soldiers member. His username is Floridianson.

It is alive! Recieved it on Memorial day and the next day I put batteries in it and played with it and got it started for the first time in roughly 10 years.

Ok, It stopped raining for a while so I got some pictures as I cleaned it out. Went out and hit the starter and it fired off within a half a crank! Got to love these old tanks.

And some of the parts that came with it, I did not get pictures of the rear fenders or engine side covers or top parts but they are all there. No top though. And the front seats are toast.

Used fender front the front.

All of the hardware that was taken off, cataloged and sorted.

Can anyone tell me what these brackets are for?

OK, Bottom picture upper left is wiring cover or channel for under front fender, covers wire to headlight.
Directly under that , 2 heavy supports look like front fender supports for your missing fender. Pretty sure that is what they are. Second possibility is for running board, but I am pretty sure fender supports.
To right of wire channel is small support piece for rear of fender and I think the 2 short bent pieces are the gas can holder supports just above or to the right fender.
This is from memory, so don't bet the rent.....but I am pretty sure that is right.
Still crazy after all these years.

ODG, You are right on the money! I took the drivers side front fender off yesterday since I have two new replacements and I got to see all of those brackets and as I was looking through The Vintage Power Wagon site I saw the gas can brackets so now everything is accounted for. I am missing two things that I will need to source, the battery box cover and the spare tire mount for the bed.

John Bizal at Midwest Military is a good place to start.

Edit....I don't know about the battery box lid, but last time I checked....the spare tire mount and the large washer and spinner were platinum plated at least. John is fair in his prices, everyone about the same in price.....just make sure the firstborn is out of the house when you get prices. :lol: :lol: Hold on to your vital anatomy and have the heart pills close.
