US Army or not?

I see this truck regularly in Zion Crossroads, VA. Moves around the owners yard, along with a troop transport. I'm not an expert on the pickups, so I won't try to ID it, but thought you pickup guys would like to see it.

Someone threw a Rhino in it. M-715s didn't have a grille at all, from what little I know of them.

Meh. Just another M715.

They are awesome trucks! You can put in an AMC360 and hit 60 on the highway! Put a locker in the rear and it is point and go driving. They're fun. Hot, loud and sometimes uncomfortable. But fun.

Pretty cool. There are still a lot of 67-69 M7XX around Colorado. The local fire department has 2 of them for brush trucks. For a few years, I thought they had just one with a nice desert tan scheme then one day I saw them bought at the gas station and just about ran off the road. They looked like twins. Some day I'll have to go over to the FD with a camera.
Ran when parked.

There was one for sale on Craigslist from Zion Crossroads for a while. I can't remember if that was the one.
