Nuyt:

Did a web search for Ford AA models and hit a couple of European sites and I am about ready to go with that model Id for the single pic and at least the first in line for the second pic.
That model Ford truck sold quite well in Scandinavia and all of Western and Southern Europe and as you know, formed the basis for the GAZAA built in large numbers in Russia well into the war.
Thanks for the FN link, rounded out some of my motorbike files.

Excellent find Sander!!!
Really made my day. Now, go to page one on this thread and look at the 1934 Belgian Chev advert I posted and you have your ID although I think yours is a 1935 model.
Thanks again, as you have proven my thesis that such Chevrolets were used by Belgian Forces.

Chevy, T13s and T15s

Post by nuyt » 14 Feb 2005 19:22

Yes Sander, great picture.

Bill was faster than me. I was identifying the truck as a Chevy (pick-up, staffcar?) with the help of Bill's other posting, when my wife started talking to me.
The first two tracked vehicles are T13B3's, the rest look like T15 light tanks.

Kind regards,
Nuyt

Hej, Nuyt:

Good to hear from you!! I would imagine a staff car type rather than a pickup type as I have no images of pickups on that particular chassis but rather a lot of staff cars from Holland, Scandinavia and elsewhere. Hard to tell from the pic, but it is on a light truck chassis, not a passenger car chassis and could as well be some sort of cargo variant. In any case, a really good find.

Two minutes later.......
Nuyt, Sander, I have changed my mind. With the complete cab, doors etc., I do not believe it is a staff car, I reacted too fast. It must be some sort of cargo variant, maybe even an ammunition or other logistics vehicle supporting the tankers.
Cheers
Bill
