Ed Smith of Ventura County, CA shared this post card of Chevy's carrying bridging supplies. It was taken early in the 40's and may be from training and manuevers in Louisiana

Chevy Field Lighting Truck. This configuration shows up in many Chevy technical manuals and WWII vehicle publications. It is unknown how many were ever produced and we have never seen any actual photographs of these in use during the war. If anyone has anymore information, let us know.
