Two more images from LIFE. I suppose that the vehicles are Dodge but, Does anyone know their exact US military denomination?
Hi Sturm78,

These appear to be Dodge 3/4 ton Model WC-51.

Also the photo you posted earlier with a 37mm AT gun mounted in the same truck was called the M6 37mm GMC.
They were a dismal failure in the N.Africa battles and replaced as fast as possible.

The frontal view in a previous post apperas to be the CCKW 6X6. The caption on the photos refers to "US halftrack" but one can see the dual tires showing at the rear of the truck. From the shape of the "headache rack" this might be a dump truck.

Well, its cabin somewhat resembles me GAZ-AA (aka Ford-AA), so this source may be right. :?
