CHEVROLET all the way.  Is that Dinah Shore on the Machine-Gun?

1936 General Motors Truck,  model 4272.

Sort of a hybrid of Chevy sheetmetal, but GMC frame and rear axle, with GMC script on rear axle.

Used '34-'35 fenders (w/o "skirts"), but used '36 hood, w/ horizontal louvers.

Chevy 206 engine, with Timken transfer case and split-type front drive axle, I believe.

Randy has this. Chev sheetmetal,GMC underpinnings,although there wasn't a cup of spit's worth of difference between the two,even at this time.

I have to admit this truck is a dead ringer for a Chevy, but if you see the USA in your Chevrolet you won't be driving this truck. Randy Sallay has this one, this is a 1936 GMC model 4272, a special model built only for the U.S. Army. This truck used a Chevrolet 6 cylinder and a GMC drivetrain. The Army bought these trucks for $1270 apiece !  The whole story can be read in the entry below from Fred Crismon's "U.S. Military Wheeled Vehicles". The WAI photo is from the Life Magazine Collection and was taken in 1938.

I've seen two of these trucks, but both had the later, more rounded, low-roof cab. One had a '36 low roof cab, and the other had a '37 low roof cab. The windshield heights are different. The cabs may have been swapped, or they may have been manufactured later than the two trucks shown here.
