I acquired a very rare 1968 WM300m Chrysler-Nissan diesel Powerwagon. It has "chrysler-nissan" on the head of the motor. The story i have found so far is that these trucks were ordered by the military and sent to NAPCO for the conversion to diesel and Utility box with a PTO driven Generator. They went with the diesel to have better fuel economy and no overheating issues, and were used to keep jet engines warm in the arctic areas. I have spoken with the folks at Vintage and they tell me they had heard of this truck but never seen one. I will be posting pictures later tonight. Dave Butler said there is a TM manual for this truck so any help finding that manual would be great. This truck was stationed at a base in Utah Thank you for any help or leads with info.
