The Big Three manufactured armaments, aircraft, military vehicles and more during World War II, and not just for the United States’ military. Chevrolet and Ford were asked by the Canadian Government to produce light infantry vehicles for the Commonwealth in 1937 and the result was the Canadian Military Pattern truck, or CMP for short.
Over 500,000 CMP trucks were built between 1940 and 1945 and many different variations were offered with cabs of a different size and shape. One of these variations was a pickup-style Chevrolet C15 with a 101-inch wheelbase, one of which recently popped up for sale on Classic Driver. The vehicle is in Belgium, which is unsurprising considering it was used by allies of the British Commonwealth and by Commonwealthy militaries in the liberation of Northwest Europe.
The Classic Driver listing advertises this CMP as a 1950 model, which is strange, seeing as production ceased in 1945. We’re going to assume they meant to type 1940, unless production continued past 1945 and we’re simply unaware. Check out this unique classified listing here for additional information and photos.
