Trailer, 1/4-ton, 2-Wheel Telephone Cable Splicer M367 (Signal Corps Model K-38A) (G747)

The M367 Maintenance Trailer is a two-wheel general purpose carrier used as a Telephone Cable Splicer. The full nomenclature is Trailer, Maintenance: Telephone Cable Splicer, 1/4-Ton, 2-Wheel, M367. The trailer is identified by FSN 2330-215-4211.

When the jeeps of WW II were replaced by the M38 and M38A1 models, a new version of the K-38 trailer was needed to match the characteristics of the new jeeps. The 1/4-ton, 2-wheel cargo trailer M100 was equipped with telephone cable splicing tool boxes, creating a new trailer model first called the Signal corps Model K-38A. The designation was generalized to Trailer, 1/4-ton, 2-Wheel Telephone Cable Splicer M367.
