Default restoring a M37

Hello from Brighton, Ontario.

I am new to this and I think I must have put my original message on the wrong forum, because I can't even find it ... oh well, here goes again.

I bought a 1955 M37 3/4 ton a couple of weeks ago and am presently trying to get it certified at the garage. If anyone knows a place where parts can be obtained for this model ( ie: rear anxle seals ) muffler, etc. I would be most grateful. I am quickly realizing that this is going to be an expensive hobby.

All of that said. I do wish to eventually have this in good enough condition to go to truck and military vehicle shows, Remembrance Day parades, and take old Army Vets out for a spin and a Tim's coffee to show our appreciation for what they have sacrificed in the name of Freedom.

Sincerely,
Richard Hamilton, RCMP ret and former PPCLI

Default M37 restoration

I also own an M37. It was pretty much fully restored when I bought it, and I have had to do very little to it. However, I know of several sources for parts that I would be happy to share with you. Are you a member of the MVPA? Their Supply Line magazine is a good starting point for parts suppliers, most of them being in the US.

Call me if you wish to talk in detail. 905-854-4576 evenings

Mel

Thank you Mel. MVPA sounds like a good organization for me to join. I have belonged to OMVA for quite a few years, but without a vehicle in the past, wasn't too involved. Now, with my M37 I will be able to participate.

The best place to get parts for the Dodge is Vintage Power Wagon in the US. They have absolutely everything and they will answer any technical equipmet or queries. Just google the name.
