Miscellaneous Info: The T9 scout car was designed by Corbitt and built on their 1 1/2 ton truck chassis, using their "Corbitt Eight" inline gasoline engine.  The vehicle was later redesignated the M2 scout car in approximately 1938. Only about twenty T9/M2''s were produced by 1938. 

A improved version of the M2 scout, designated the M2E1, was also produced.  Among other changes, it was equipped with heavier axles, and a track mounted weapon mount was fitted (a precursor to that on the M2A1/M3/M3A1 scout car), but only two vehicles were produced before being cancelled.
