This maybe one of the rare M16 pickups!

A bit of dyslexia on the model number?? (If the year of it was actually correct, which it wasn't!)

Interesting group of trucks. The decent deal might be a deal if it were solid. One picture and some flat black paint over who knows what make it impossible to tell. Some people don't realize that advertising on the internet is not like putting an ad in the local paper. If the vehicle is nearby and you are interested you just go by and take a look. Good ads on the net need lots of clear pictures.

Not a M-16 as there is no spacer on the fender and it has a Champion engine. Not a R-3 truck, the model is 3R (though as a 1955 it would be an E model). The hood ornamentation confirms it is a 1955 model.
