5 TON 6X6 M-51 DUMP TRUCK

It is not listed in the TM's or SNL's for the 5 TON 6X6 Dump, but the USAF had a conversion kit high sided steel dump body for the M-Series 5 Ton. It was availible during the early 50's for snow removal at air bases. Bodies were by Gar-Wood, I believe.
At that time period, USAF was being equipped with more tactical trucks than commercial trucks.
