I have an analog clock sitting on a digital clock(-radio).

Depending on the lighting and whether I have my glasses on, I can read one or the other first.

Makes sense. While those digital clocks are often quite small, an analog one with roughly the same size of a dish can be easier to read within a distance.

The stock flathead-six of this '66 Dodge WM300 is long gone. Was replaced by a Perkins 4-236 Diesel sometime in the '70s or '80s.


I don't know why, but this Cherokee reminded me of a prerunner with this bumper (except for the winch).

Are you sure?

Not an exact match to the WM300 or M-37 from what I can tell.

1953 Dodge M-37 Power Wagon

EDIT:

Does look to be a 1966 front, but cabin and bed of earlier model?

1966 Dodge Power Wagon WM300

Possibly built for export?

My little brother (RIP) had a 1952 Dodge military ambulance. It also had a diesel conversion.

Most likely it retained that bodystyle because it's a military model, so it was easier to haul on a C-130, with the windshield down.

I guess space was not a matter of concern while doing such grocery runs.
