Dodge M-37s were one of the most utilized military vehicles during the Korean War era. With the same six-cylinder engine as the Plymouth cars and a heavy duty New Process transfer case, they proved they could take a beating. The 3/4-ton 4WD convertible was designed to replace the WWII WC series Dodge trucks and the military designation for them was G-741. They were replaced by the M-880 Dodge trucks in the mid-sixties.
I found this one a few months back for sale in the Hemmings classifieds:
1954 Dodge M37 Gun Truck – 230 flathead six cylinder, 4-speed manual transmission, four wheel drive, demilled .50 caliber Browning machine gun M2HB, demilled M1 Garand rifle, rear mounted pioneer kit, 24 volt with water -proof ignition, black out lighting, new correct canvas top, correct USMC lettering, new NDT tires, correct Marine Corp ship tie downs – Awesome Korean War era Gun Truck – Runs & Drives Excellent – New Paint & USMC Lettering – From The Collection of Local Military Vehicle Collector $16,500
I consider this the ultimate road rage machine. Excellent restoration done on this truck too. You can spend more thanÂ $16,500 on a new truck, but everyone is driving those, who is driving one with their own machine gun?
