NDT''s ON STAFF CARS

Post by Ben Dover » Fri Aug 02, 2013 5:21 am

The 6.00X16 NDT was a common sight on the WWII Staff cars of the period, especially on the rear. This could be witnessed thru the early 50's while the WWII era Staff Cars were still in service.

It's a Plymouth Staff Car, note the location of the distributor.

First glance looks like GM body with curved lower doors.
Upon close, blown up, inspection it does seem to have a Plymouth data plate.
