M37, M42, M43 Dodge


This M37 is shown with canvas cargo cover, tailgate chain covers and cab top. Pioneer tool rack straps shown on tailgate rack. Owned and restored by Ryan Gronevelt, resides in New Prague, MN.

The following is our list of canvas and webbing items for the ¾ ton M-series Dodges.  We use 18 oz/square yard canvas with the correct milspec water and mildew resistant finish for tops and 14 oz/square yard for seat covers (different finish for tops and seats).  Details and designs are the same as the originals, with a few improvements as noted.  Hardware is black finish, sewing thread is polyester, zippers are brass, tie down ropes are your choice of manila or black polypropylene (if you don’t specify, we send manila).


Colors available for tops are: olive drab (original color, 34087) in Mil-spec canvas.  Tops can also be made in several colors of modern, synthetic canvas or Coverlight Vinyl. 

We make seat covers in the original olive drab canvas, black, gray or brown leatherette vinyl.  We can make seat covers, and tops, in non-milspec fabrics (Coverlight vinyl, Sunbrella, etc.).


Most items are "make to order", many standard items such as seat covers and straps are now in stock.  Please call or write for canvas samples or more information.
