I agree, Dodge Power Wagon. There were lots of post 1953 vehicles used to make Mash. Jeeps as well as trucks and buses

It’s even got the correct 1951 and earlier WDX/B1PW style bed. In ‘51 they switched to the 2wd style embossed side panels and three stake pockets per side beds on PWs. Stu

I don't suppose it's a rare, original mil spec Ford cab/chassis with a Dodge bed?

I don't feel like trying to find a picture, but I remember seeing a monkeyface in hogans heroes once too. Bit of an anachronism...

It’s an original cab/chassis or flatbed based on the shorty original boards. I think it’s an F-3 rather than F-2 from the looks of the rim lips. There were plenty of surplus beds available for whomever did the build.

Edit - hey Wayne, could the truck really be a Merc based on the nose badge area between the vent holes? If it’s a Merc it would be an M-68 because they didn’t produce any F-57/M-57 Canadian Fords or Mercs. Stu

Stu, I doesn't have the Merc grill or the fender mounted parking lights.

That could be it. I want to say I remember a pickup, but it's been a long time since I've watched the show
