During WWII Canada produced well over 850.000 military motor vehicles which includes one of the most widely used types: the 4 x 2 type Chevrolet 15 CWT.
This vehicle was the backbone of the Australian, British and Canadian Forces but was also supplied to many of the other Allies including the Soviet Union, China and India.
The truck was used for transporting troops, ammunition and other war materials.
The design was based on a British Army design and the vehicle was built by General Motors of Canada as well as in Australia.
The engines were also supplied through American manufacturers.
