Default Question about CMP to restore in Argentina

Quote:
Dear Hanno.
I sent this mail to ask you some questions of the cmp.
A friend is rebuilding an C15A CMP, but it lacks the cargo box.
We assume that the cargo box is a classic folded sheet metal, which is from the introduction of the Cab No 13.

The factory of canada delivery c15A with any wooden cargo box similar to those used in wireless c8 body? like this http://www.imagecontrol.com.au/oldcm...ml#Anchor-7431

There are photographs that document the use of this cargo box in C15A?

Attached photos of my friend C15A.

Cordiales Saludos

Luis,

The C15A Cab 13 came with the 2C, 2H and 2J series of body types shown in this picture: http://bcoy1cpb.pacdat.net/CMP_15_Cwt_body_styles.jpg (see source).

While they can be remanufactured, an alternative in full wood could be the so-called Indian Pattern body. Those were manufactured in India where they were fitted to imported Canadian Chevrolet and Ford chassis/cabs.



I have posted your question here so others can add a reply.

Hope this helps,
Hanno

If the Cab 13 is a 1942 model it could have come with the 2B1 box too. That 8 cwt body in the link is all metal. Your friend's 15 cwt is a 1944 or 1945 model with the lifting flanges on the hubs.
The second pic is from the thread New photos of old vehicles at the Proving Ground.

Default body

Very similar to the body that I built for the C15, The centre brkts and front corners came from the old C60 body which I believe was a workshop as it had a short section at front with mesh grill and drop down side WITH legs. There,s a good pic in Blue print to Victory P163. Bob
