Anyone know of other factory photographs - there are several in the Boniface & Jeudy book "US Army Vehicles of WW2" that have GM numbers on them.

Bryce Sunderlins excellent series of articles on the CCKW in ARMY MOTORS had many GMC numbered factory photos. Mine are packed away somewhere out of sight.
