This is a bit of a difficult view, lets see if our experts can figure it out. Photo from the Life Magazine Collection.

The basic layout was the same as the other prime movers. al steel body, midships winch. 8 ton capacity and the ability to move a 155 mm and 8 inch guns, riding on 9.75 by 22 inch tires.

I have to agree with the Corbitt group.  CORBITT M1 6X4 from my home state of North Carolina;  Henderson to be exact.

Almost everyone is right on this very rare military truck, with Brian Kelly leading the way and John Gott filling in all the pertinent details. This truck is a Corbitt M1 8 ton 6x4 prime mover first built in 1932 and possibly built over the next several years. This photo set from Life has 2 different dates, 1937 and 1939, but the trucks look very new so I think '37 is more accurate. These 6x4's were built as prime movers for large howitzers and anti-aircraft guns. Although powerful trucks for the day, their cross country performance was limited and by 1940 the Army was using 6 ton 6x6's built by Mack and Corbitt for these duties. All photos are from the Life Magazine Collection, except for the last entry from Fred Crismon's "U.S. Military Wheeled Vehicles". The photos in the links are larger than the ones below.

Since no one noticed the imposter in the lineup, tonight's WAI photo will look a lot like today's !
