Chevrolet 1 1/2 ton 4x4 Panel Truck (G7105)

The Chevrolet 1 1/2 ton 4x4 Panel Truck (G7105) was part of the G506 series of 1 1/2 ton closed cab trucks built by Chevrolet in large numbers during World War II. The G7105 looks like a Dodge WC panel or carryall truck from the G505 series. However, it has the higher carrying capacity and dual rear wheels. When used by the Signal Corps as a radio truck, it is designated the K-51.

All of the G506 series trucks were powered by the Chevrolet 235 cu. in. 83 hp. six cyl. engine mated to a four speed transmission and two speed transfer case.
