Miscellaneous Info: The prototype Trackless Tank was the predecessor of what was later to be developed as the T13/T13E1 Armored Cars.  The T13 base chassis was also planned to be used for two (2) other variants, the T7 3-Inch Gun Motor Carriage as well as the T39 105mm Howitzer Motor Carriage.  The production of all three (3) of the variants mentioned above was later cancelled after only a few T13's and T13E1's were built.

After a few T13 Armored Cars were built, two (2) modified vehicles were produced with a longer hull to accommodate 12x30 combat tires as well as the fitting of the 7-Cylinder Continental W670-9A gasoline engine.  However, no other production occurred as indicated above.
