Well I was reading this post and it was amazing to hear the word 10-ton and when we own a M123 and M125 and we have both the engines in it one we have is that LeRoi engine and that 10-ton is a complete off the restoration we did a few years ago already and everything was original on it even the tires are stamped with the 1958 year into the rubber of the 20 ply tires. But it was neat to hear stories about the 10-ton for they only made 500 of the Cargo's and having own one like we do is something special to us and the other one we have is a tractor trailer and that has a Diesel engine in it. And thanks for sharing that story. For my father use them in the Army and they are a special sounding engine for sure them LeRoi and we just enjoy taking it out when we can here and to seeing it parked next to cars or trucks make this an very impressive machine indeed. As you can tell I am proud to own these two amazing trucks and can't wait to hear more stories about them. God bless you and many blessings to all here on the G!

They are more impressive when stopped in traffic next to a car with open windows. Those dual exhausts can blow hats off.
