M-37 drivetrain?

Hi guys, my folks just picked up a '53 Dodge M-37, ex-USAF truck with no rust and it's all there! It hasn't run in 12 years, but we are working on that, and brakes so we can at least drive it around the block by the end of summer.
My question is, what did these trucks have for drivetrain, front/rear axles, t-case, transmission? Just curious.
