This is a bit of a difficult angle but we'll see if anyone can figure it out. Photo from the Life Magazine Collection.

Corbitt prototype for the US army, not accepted for service (I think they cancelled the whole programme).

Lots of very interesting answers here, and two of you are right. This is the experimental Corbitt T33 12 ton 8x8 cargo truck built in 1946. Weighing in at 50.780 lbs, this beast sported 14.00x20 tires and a cab that seated 7 crewmen. It's most unusual feature was the engine, a Continental R975C4 9 cylinder radial aircraft engine developing 450 hp. More details can be found in the excepts from Fred Crismon's "U.S. Military Wheeled Vehicles". Mike W had this first. Our 1948 photos are from the Life Magazine Collection.
