    I was driving through Nova Scotia, saw a truck parked in someone's driveway from a distance on another road, turned around and took a drive up the property to check it out, turned out not to be an FJ45, but I couldn't ID it. What is it? :confused: Some sort of International?

    Anyway, looked like a nice old truck to bomb around in. :D

    Doh, should have thought of that--dad drove one new in the late 1950s, didn't know what the earlier trucks looked like.

    Could be the M-37 (I think) military version of the powerwagon.

    I know very little about those except that I like them. The steel is so heavy you could stand on the front fender easily.

    That's a sweet Pow-wag(M37 as previouly confirmed), those removable hard tops are fairly rare, the soft tops are far more common. Check out www.vintagepowerwagons.com for more info on these rigs.

    I missed out on one last year at an estate sale by $200.....old Fire Station truck. Turns out the guy who owns the property right next to my gym beat me to it. I had the 40 parked out the other day and he pulled the M-37 out. Pretty cool. He drives it about once a week.


    I'll try to get pics.

    told the lady in charge of off-selling everything that I'd give her $2500 for it. She hadn't had a SINGLE hit on it. She said she'd call if it was high bid post sale. Britton came in just after me and gave $2700 for it. Bastard put in a battery and DROVE it home.

    Coulda had a work truck!!!

    He says it's the roughest riding S.O.B he's ever been in though. Can't imagine why?

    Isn't Nova Scotia pretty much Canada's Arkansas?

    I think they'd have to compete with New Brunswick and Newfoundland, and probably would lose (Nova Scotia has Halifax, which is, among other things, home to all the institutions of higher learning in the maritimes--sort of like a Boston of Canada).

    Anyway, so, I take it an M-37 wouldn't make a good highway truck? :rolleyes:

    Ahhh, I think I had Nova Scotia confussed with Newfoundland...

    And I'm sure an M-37 would be great as a highway truck - so long as you don't go over 45mph.
