Hi again Dave,
The crane tractor is a 2-ton M3 built by Intenational Harvester.

Sturm78,

That is a Linn T6 Semi-tracked artillery tractor. The frame outside the tracks is characteristic of many of the Linn designs.

Could someone help identify the woody station wagon in these video stills? The armored cars are T13s, but I can't seem to find a good match for the woodys.

I would second that. Every characteristic of the cab looks like a General Motors badge

The truck appears to be a Bay City 150 6x4 crane. Used by the Navy (Seabees) See Page 429 of "US Wheeled Military Vehicles" by Fred W. Crismon.
