i could swear i replied to you a couple days ago. I must have forgot to hit send.

I'm interested. In your profile you have an album with a truck in it that could be one of these. Let me know where the ads are posted please.

Looking for short wheel base if possible but not picky.

Where are all the tanker versions of this truck I see in all the old black and white photos? That would be great too.

I have a stupid twin screw story.

I had just gotten my CDL and was looking for work and I found this temp agency. They sent me to, I think it was Martin. It was a demolition company in Indiana. 

Anyway, one day I'm in my tractor with the full size dump trailer getting loaded with metal to take to the scrap yard and I get stuck. So I pushed what I will always call 'the joy button' and proceeded to get un-stuck. Super cool. Made the whole job worth it. I swear I think about it a few times a year now two decades later. There is more to the story but it's late so I skipped a bit.

Anyway, I was only there a month when I got hired by another company and a year later I was a full time computer programmer. Sadly, I haven't even seen a 'joy button' since. In fact, I regret that I can't remember what it looked like. I swear it was a button but I don't know.

If I could afford to pay $50k, I would buy this truck because it is awesome. But I would make it my daily driver in hope that someday I would get stuck.

That's a Mack model NB-1 searchlight truck (basically a modified civilian EEU). The US Army purchased 368 units. It was rated at 2.5 tons cross-country and 5.0 tons on-road. They were built in 1939 with 253-cubic inch 77-horsepower Continental "FO" L-head engines. They had a 50mph top speed, 24' 10" overall length , 172" wheelbase, 15,630lb weight fully loaded and rode on 7.00x20 tires.

The other two members of the US Army's searchlight trio of the 1939-1940 period were the Federal model 75K131 and GMC model AFWX 354-10A.

Nobody who reads this is going to know me but I can be... let's say, "difficult".

That button must have been the differential lock. I don't think a truck as old as this one would have it (my '59 doesn't). The front drive has a power divider so both axles drive all the time.

No Kemp connection that I know of. 

Fellow in Mass. had the truck and my recollection is that he got it from a well drilling outfit that had used it or was planning on mounting equipment for the trade.  Then about 15 years ago, the quad cab found a new home in Redding, CT where it is now for sale.
