Default M715 Kaiser willys and M422 Mite

I was just curious to whether or not any of our members here have a M715 Kaiser Willys truck (Gladiator) or M422 Mighty Mite?
I thought that I had seen these trucks at one of the various shows in the past here in Ontario...

There are two M715 trucks owned in the Cornwall area, both gents were at Waterloo PQ last year.

Hey Chris

As you know, I am the M715 owner from Cornwall. Robin is referring to Al from Montreal who was at the Waterloo Khaki with a well outfitted version.

I know of 3 other Montreal owners. 1 is completely stock, 1 is running a cummins 6bt, deuce tranny, rockwell axles, and 40 something tires. The 3rd one is a project truck destined to be an offroader with a Ford diesel.

There is another new owner down in New Brunswick and I've heard rumours of another one down in Toronto. I'm sure there are more scattered across the country that have imported them up from the US.

If you're ever in the neighbourhood give me a shout and you can check out my 3 versions of the truck..
