New guy from Oregon

Hello all, I have recently inherited a 1944 M-2-4, My granddad purchased it almost new after the war. Skip many years ,on the day me and my wife were married towards the end of the reception I was with my father and we were looking At an old truck in the field next door. And dad said " I learned to drive a truck just like that when I was 9 years old" So we went over and checked it out. His name was scratched on the dash. So he bought it from the guy 35 years ago. He worked on it a little bit, but now he's 80 and needed room in his yard and was getting rid of it and he asked if I wanted it and of course I said yes. So here I am trying to glean information and looking for parts.

Best to you all, Don Christian

Amazing coincidence in finding the family truck!

Welcome to the board, there are many brilliant people here with a wealth of knowledge. (I am not included in that list)

Enjoy your truck and keep the history alive!
