Technical Manual Series No 6038: U.S. WWII CHEVROLET 1 ½-TON 4X4 CARGO TRUCKS, M6 BOMB SERVICE TRUCK AND OTHER VARIANTS.
COMPREHENSIVE PICTORIAL WITH TECHNICAL DESCRIPTIONS BASED ON THE ORIGINAL TECHNICAL MANUALS.
Production of the first Chevrolet 1 ½-ton 4x4 trucks started in August 1940 with cargo and dump trucks with and without winch, panel trucks and the Bomb Service Truck M6. Of these models only the cargo trucks kept rolling off the assembly lines until the end of production in August 1945, as these were the main models to be used for International Aid requirements and delivered to allied nations through Lend-Lease. As 40 % of the Chevrolet 1 ½-ton 4x4 cargo trucks and most dump trucks served with the U.S. Armed Forces it is hard to understand why these Chevrolet models lived in the shadows of the omnipresent GMC CCKW 2 ½-ton 6x6 trucks. Many Chevrolet cargo and dump trucks were used by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, assigned to the construction of the Alcan (Alaska) Highway in Canada and Alaska and the Ledo-Burma Road, connecting India with China, or assigned to bridge erection units to transport ponton bridge components.
