I think this is the 5-ton version of the M-35 (i forgot the M designation). The M-35 was the 2.5ton.

Was this M-251, then?

It is either one of the M-39 (G-744) Series of 5-ton trucks first introduced in 1951 and built by International, Diamond T and Mack, from 1953 on in larger numbers by International and Kaiser Jeep, or it is a M-809 Series version built by AM General from 1970 until the introduction of the M-939 Series in 1983.

I don't know which Series this truck belongs to, nor can I tell at the moment what the correct 'M' number is. But as far as I know 'M-251' does not exist. Buc84 is the only one using this number, but he gave no reference.

I am not sure if it is possible to keep the M-39 and M-809 Series apart. I am still looking for a good reference on the subject.

Thanks for correcting me(Really?),I guess I had myself a brain fart? (Everyone just called these a "Deuce & a Half" or a "6x6"? Might be where I got the "251" number from?)Anyway,the M-35 came out in the mid 1950's and was followed by M-923 in the mid 1980's.There are minor changes thru the run of the M-35 series,such as grilles,placement of lights,and especially the powertrains,dependent on the mfgr."www.olive-drab.com" is a very good place to look this over.(And a good place to refresh one's apparently failing memory?? I'll go thru & edit my other comments within the coming days.)This one is probably a late '60s Kaiser or maybe a very early '70s AM General version.

This is a 1970's M-813A2 series 5 ton produced by Am General. The 1960s models had passenger fender mounted air cleaners and were classified as M54A2 series. These trucks ran a 465ci continental multifuel turbo diesel motor like the M35A2 series until the 1970's when the cummins big cam and caterpiller were introduced to the military.

Thanks for the information on the position of the air cleaners ... quite obvious, if you know what to look for.

The M-813 would be the standard LWB cargo truck and would thus be equipped with a soft-top but no loading crane. I don't know of a special number assigned to one with a loading crane, therefore it probably is an M-809, which is not only the number for the series, but also for the LWB chassis on which task specific equipment could be mounted.
