Chevrolet 1 1/2 ton 4x4 Cargo Dump (G7106 or G7116)

The Chevrolet 1 1/2 ton 4x4 Cargo Dump (G7106 or G7116) 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 G7106 looks exactly like the basic G506 cargo truck (the G7107), but has a hydraulic cylinder that can lift and dump the nine foot cargo body. The G7116 is the same truck fitted with a front PTO winch. The G7106 and G7116 have a wheel base of 145 inches.

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.
