(GTB CARGO --- GTB BOMB SERVICE---M5 BOMB TRAILER ---INTERNATIONAL M-3-4 CRASH TENDER--FORD GPW----INTERNATIONAL m-2-4 ----JEEP GENERATOR & AIRCRAFT MAINTANANCE LIGHTS==)The truck was imported some years back . We brought the light body . The truck had a GS body installed & attended some shows . We then where offered the truck back without the cargo back. We have collected most parts for the restoration . We have spoken to our friends across the pond they think it might be the only one to survive . ??? T CORBIN
