Default GMC 2 1/2 ton 6x6 collection

I'm old and tired enough to admit that it's time to get rid of most of my projects.

One that I've decided I'm not likely to do anything with is a collection of M-135 and M-211 series vehicles, including an M-215 dump truck. There are 5 complete and restorable trucks and 3 more parts trucks.

There is also a large quantity of used parts and new-in-the-original-crate parts, also a quantity of manuals.

I'd like to dispose of them all as a lot. I know if I keep some of them, I'll be termpted to restore one and then find out I just sold the part I need. If one person buys them all, he'll never have to look for parts again.

I hope to get $15 000 for the lot. At current prices, that's not much more than twice their scrap value, and they're a lot better than scrap. If nobody's interested in them as a package, I will consider selling them piecemeal, but I really would prefer to have them all gone. If they're going to be parted out, I'd rather let someone else make a profit doing it (See above about old and tired)

I can help load (and most of the trucks should be towable), but I can't deliver them. There's no urgency about removing them, but sometime before next winter would be nice. They're located in Chatham-Kent, Ontario (between Windsor and London).

It's the end of June and so far no one has been ambitious (or crazy) enough to be interested in the whole fleet as a package. So I'm open to offers on individual trucks or even parts of trucks.

Which manuals do you have? I may have an interest.

Shipping the parts that I desire, will bankrupt me

As long as I have the trucks, I have to keep a set of manuals. I'll see if I have duplicates of any.

If someone needs the manuals, we have pdf versions of all of them on our website to download for free: http://www.militarytrucks.ca/m135.htm

I know you maybe looking for hard copy manuals, but the pdf versions can do until you get a hard copy version.
