T230 "Fargo" 6x6 Armored Car


Vehicle with redesigned front end


Country of Origin/Used by: USA
First Produced/Service Dates: 1942/1943
Manufactured by: Chrysler Corporation (Dodge Division)
Armament: None
Engine: 6-cylinder Petrol (Water-cooled)
Miscellaneous Info: This vehicle was based on the Dodge WC62 6x6 1 1/2 Ton "Fargo" truck chassis and power train. Originally designed to mount a Maxson anti-aircraft gun turret, its role was later changed to that of a scout/ reconnaissance vehicle. Even after the vehicle was dismissed as a scout vehicle, use as an armored ambulance or ammunition carrier was envisioned.  However, no series production ever occured, two prototypes being the only vehicles ever built. Note: photographic evidence shows that at least one prototype had a redesigned front end.
