T19E1 Armored Car


Country of Origin/Used by: USA
First Produced/Service Dates: 1943
Manufactured by: Chevrolet Division of General Motors
Crew: 5
Armament: (1) 37mm cannon and (2) .30 caliber machine guns.
Engine: (2) 8-Cylinder Gasoline (Cadillac Liquid-cooled)
Miscellaneous Info: Only one T19E1 was completed. Testing showed the design was too heavy for an efficient reconnaissance vehicle, although the chassis showed promise. At the request of Tank Destroyer Command, an M3 75mm gun was mounted on the same chassis, but in an open turret and designated the T66 75mm Gun Motor Carriage.
