OT- U.S.A.F. Dodge M-37 pic\'s needed!

Hi all, as some of you know, my folks own a '53 M-37 that is an original Air Force truck. It has, sometime in it's life been sold to the US Army and painted O.D. as such. What I am looking for is some pic's of original, or "correctly" restored 'Blue' Trucks with location and types of markings and their colors. We want to restore this truck in it's original form and want it to be correct, but are having a hard time finding references to the rarely seen blue trucks.

Thanks all!

Larry, Cool page for the restoration/detail proscess and lots of good links, but I'm still looking for "Air Force Specific" details as far as markings and colors.

Pontiac58, that would be cool if there are some unmolested if overgrown USAF trucks in your buddies junkyard. What I'm looking for in detail is ...

Door and hood markings
Tailgate and bumper markings
any other markings that would distinguish it as an AF truck.
Interior color (Strata Blue or O.D.?)
Engine Color (should be Chrysler silver, but I've heard blue as well)
Canvas color interior and exterior (should be O.D.)
wheel color.

Thanks a ton guys!
