Not my specialist subject, but

It's either a White's Indiana T7 / M1 12x4 , with a six cylinder Hercules engine, or a Corbitt T9 or M2, M2/E1 with a 'New Corbitt Eight' engine.

Both were built in the mid 1930s as development vehicles for what ended up being the Whites Scout Car, and both were completely different, but so similar in appearance and USA numbers, that I can't tell which is which.

It is even possible that the two trucks i the photo are one from each manufacturer.

And I have an N.O.S. Early Style Socket w/pins for the Pedestal Mount on the running board. The Pintles are retained by an "L" shaped lower pin on the early Pedestals. It is available to serious collectors.

One might want to consult Crismons "Military Wheeled Vehicles" or the pre WWII volume of the Olyslager booklets by Bart Vanderveen. I have them, but it is more sporting to let someone else get the credit. :wink:

Now here's a thread I can get into. I hadn't been by the forum in a while and a friend tipped me off to the discussion. The Indiana/White T7/M1 scout cars are my personal favorites and would be the one vehicle I'd choose to own if I could only have one MV. I'm only aware of one survivor of the 76 built and, unfortunately, it isn't mine....yet. I think most of us have a vehicle that is kind of like kryptonite and heroin rolled into one, makes you weak and attracted uncontollably, kind of like Craig is to hand carts.

Here's a scan of the data plate from car #49, an eBay purchase I restored a few years ago (no, not the whole scout car, just the plate):

The only other part I've found yet is one of the machine gun bracket mounts that attach to the rear doors to hold the M1919A2 Cavalry machine gun. It was found at a Big Bear rally in California about 10 years ago. I sure wish these parts could talk to lead me back to where they were acquired. Which leads me to Ranger.....I sure would like to see a photo or two of the socket you have. If you find the time to email or drop me a PM, please let me know what you have.

And thanks for the photos, as well.

The NOS Socket w/pins is available for sale or as trading material for cosmetic MB, CCKW parts, or items used with the M-27 Bomb Service Truck and the M1 Bomb Lift Truck. I am trying to complete the tool set for the Bomb Service Truck and M-1.
I will send pic as soon as possible.
