What is this


Recommended Posts

When I saw it I was instantly reminded of the Cook Bros Desert Training Vehicle from 1942, referred to as Cooks Cozy Cabin by Crismon, it even shares the same chain drive philosophy.


Looking at it hard, it looks to be an 8 x 6 without a driven front axle, and the style is more like a Christie Trackless Tank of some kind?

It's the Trackless tank -which was the Trackless Tank Corporation rather than Christie and led to the T13. It was powered by the Guiberson T-1020 diesel.


The cook Bros vehicle was T55-sometimes called the cook interceptor was a 3inch T9 gun (as fitted to M1)TD) mounted on an 8 wheeler all driven hull with a distinctive gap between axles 2 and 3.
