Default Wanted: M715 Kaiser Jeep

Hi Guys, looking for a M715 Kaiser Jeep 1-1/4t truck.
I know that they are plentiful in the USA, thought I would try my luck with someone in Canada maybe having one. I am also open to importing one from the USA, but would prefer one in the Great Lakes area. Looking for very nice sheet metal, engine and drivetrain not important. I am seeking a project vehicle and not a restored one. Preferably as original as possible. The US Gov't sold lots of these to public works, fire department, USFS etc.
I am following other forums pertaining to the same and have posted wants there also.

Chris,
That is exactly what I looked for but I imported from the US.
I Found an ex Fire service rust free truck that was very complete. The FD swapped the original engine with a V8 from the same year Gladiator. Other than that everything was the way I wanted. Take your time, it took me a year to find the right one. A good place to look is in the for sale section over at the m715zone where I found mine.

Thanks Al, I am hanging out over there looking for the right one. Isee quite a few listed that are mid-west or further, hoping for one a little bit nearer that is rust free. Lots of time.
