Contract Numbers


These are contract numbers taken from data plates of trucks listed in the registry. The two date columns are earliest and latest reported. This list will be updated as vehicles are added to the registry.

I contacted Shelly at TACOM about getting copies of M37 contracts. Here is the reply I recieved.

"This is in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)request for copies
of contracts awarded for the Dodge M37 3/4 ton truck used by the Army from 1950 to 1968.

DOD Regulations require contract files be destroyed 6 years and 3 months after
date of final payment. Given the dates you referenced,it is my assumption
these records no longer exist."

I would to thank Shelly for her help in this matter.
