looks like an M-37 to me...the hood line is different from an fq15/fq10 and also the marker lights are inboard not outboard like an fq15/fq10...also the way the windshild folds down is not like an fq15/fq10.

I'd say it's an M-37 Dodge

dont know why they say toyota at the bottom? can anybody translate?

"JEEP DODGE NÃO É TOYOTA NEM WILLYS"

my translator is not always that good I think it says:

"JEEP DODGE is NOT TOYOTA NEITHER WILLYS"

It's a plug most people put on thier adds.
If you search it will come up with what ever you put in the description. Search Jeep and you will come up with Not Toyota and Not Hummer, etc.

Odd vehicle

That's something i have never seen before. Not in any of my Toyota books going back to 1951. Looks like my M37 below in many ways. All the early BJ's that even resemble that have flat fenders. i would like to see more picts of that one.

Found this

This is a Toyota FQ-15 Military Truck.
It was patterned after the Dodge M37 and manufactured in the 1950's for the
Japan Self Defense force and for the USA Military to use in
Korea and other parts of Asia. They are powered by the same engine that is
used in the Land Cruiser. They came in two basic models.
The FQ-10 and the FQ-15. They had different Wheel base and some
other differences

All my books are History of the Land Cruiser, etc so it's wouldn't show up there. I don't think it's really any precursor to the BJ. Toyota definately "borrowed" from Dodge on this one.

I don't know how, but I bet someone can enlarge the photo of the dash and read the name plates to see what this truck is. Curious, John Pardi
