Miscellaneous Info: Only two T8's were completed, with registration numbers USA W1307 and W1308. There is some information available stating that armored body of Car W1307 was later used to build the only T9 Armored Car produced, but we are not sure if that is accurate.

Similar to the T6-4WD, T6, T7, T9 and T10 Armored Cars as they were all based on commercial truck chassis and armored by the US Quartermaster Corps, Holabird Depot, Maryland.
