From the ad: “Rare dodge XM195 military prototype vehicle built in 1950. 3 of these were made for the military to test. This is the only known survivor. This vehicle is a smaller version of the dodge M37. This vehicle was intended to be a possible replacement for the Jeep. The bed of the truck is missing. It does have many original parts. It does have original dated tires and has original bead clips still in the rims. This truck does not run. It does need extensive restoration.”

    Looks like I saw this a little too late. Craigslist ad is down now. If the truck is still for sale I would like to contact the seller. I have have also posted in my thread about the XM195 on SteelSoldiers that I want to get in touch with the seller. hkh1mail “at” yahoo “dot” com

    Thanks for any leads.

    Hi Karl,

    Given the ad expired on Craigslist, the vehicle could still be available. So, I’ve updated the post and will keep a look out for it. If I see it again, I will send you an email.

    Hi Dave,

    The XM195 was sold and has a new owner. Not me unfortunately, but it sounds like the new owner has plans for a restoration. Such a neat little truck. I’m glad it was saved.
