First Produced/Service Dates: 1932
Manufactured by: Chassis: Franklin Automobile Company; Armored Body: US Quartermaster Corps
Crew: 4?
Armament: (1) .30 cal Machine Gun
Engine: 6-Cylinder Gasoline
Miscellaneous Info: Only one vehicle was produced, which was converted from the chassis of the EARLIER T7 Armored Car.  The car's registration number was USA W6011.  However, this vehicle did not have the same interchangeable body as that of the T7.  In addition, it should not be confused with the first "Holabird" produced armored car, the T6-4WD (4-Wheel Drive) armored car.

The T7 was similar to the T6-4WD, T7, T8, T9 and T10 Armored Cars as they were all based on commercial truck chassis and armored by the US Quartermaster Corps (QMC), Holabird Depot, Maryland.  This was the last of the armored cars produced by the US QMC.
