Chevrolet » Light Prime Mover T7
A 1932 1.5-ton Chevrolet truck was modified by the addition of a dual drive rear bogie to create the Light Prime Mover T7 for the Army. The Gear Grinding Machine Company of Detroit built the rear bogie, and it was tested with a wood plank body, carrying a three ton payload. Chevrolet's standard Confederate model 194 cubic inch, 53 horsepower engine was used with a 4-speed transmission, while the two speed bogie gave eight forward speeds. The Army liked the 6x4 Chevrolet, but decided it was too heavy at 5,275 pounds to be manhandled when it got stuck, and opted to continue purchasing much lighter trucks for general hauling needs.
