MV Spotlight: M35A2 2-1/2-ton 6x6 CARGO TRUCK

M35 Bottom

A dual-wheeled version of the new truck was created for use primarily on roads (the single-wheel M34 being preferred for off-road operation). The dual-wheeled variant was the M35. Using dual 9.00-20 rear wheels, its cargo bed lacked wheel wells, providing a flat floor for loading cargo, although like the M34 it was equipped with fold-down troop seats.

Through the years, Reo’s 1949 design has been produced by no less than 10 companies, including Reo Motors, Studebaker, Studebaker-Packard, Curtiss-Wright, Kaiser-Jeep and AM General. Like all the early postwar vehicle designs, these trucks were equipped for fording with virtually no preparation.

Weight: 13,860 pounds

3=Very Good: Complete and operable original or older restoration, or a very good amateur restoration with all presentable and serviceable parts inside and out.

4=Good: Functional or needing only minor work to be functional. Also, a deteriorated restoration or poor amateur restoration.
