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.

Chevrolet » Series 3000 Forward Control / Step-Van '58

Do you know what the windshield measurements are for your 1959/60 Chevrolet Task Force Step Van Model 3545? I'm searching for a windshield for my 72 Dodge Southwood (1 of only 6 built) and it looks like this might be the same windshield that is in my unit!!! I've been searching just to try and figure out what windshields they used. Once I can sort that out, hopefully I can finally source a replacement for my motorhome:)
