Not a direct answer but the wheels are much more British-like types than American ones

Hi Sturm,
Could be but the same Military Pattern 6x6 was also built by White and Brockway. I don't know if there were any detail differences.

At a quick guess, yes. M3 had a lowered idler wheel in the back to lower ground pressure and increase mobility.
