I have saw a few M715's painted black and they sure look good. I haven't saw a 715 hardtop that I liked but I stand corrected now, beautiful top and truck. Nice job!

Thank you. We designed and fabricated it, along with many other parts ourselves. It is made from stainless steel since that is what we work with the most. As soon as we finish the overhead console and the switch panel, we will take more photos and post.

WG, that is one nice looking XM-715. Mine is a 67 stocker, owned about 12 or 13 years. Don't drive mine much and a week or so ago, went to start it and it just did not want to start. Put a little fuel in it and it is amazing what a difference that makes. Did you upgrade the ring and pinions as well?

Thank you for the kind words. Mine rarely gets driven either and it still has stock ring and pinion gears, but does have lockers installed. At some point I'd like to do the overdrive transmission and a couple other things, but right now we still have too many irons in the fire.

are you looking for stock wheels or custom? There have been threads about changing the centers to custom wheels. Depends on how many you need and where you live. We might be able to find some from some of the people on here.

Hello, do you still make wheels for the M715, if so what are the options and a price range? Thanks for your time, Sincerely, Jim
Hello Jim, I built these using Budd bands and my own centers back in the 90's. I am thinking about making a set of adapters for current military aluminum wheels now since there are several types that should work out nicely. When that happens, I'll probably put the ones on it now on the market as well as offer the adapters that I come up with.
