1943 WWII T16 Universal Carrier – SOLD

This 1943 T16 Universal Carrier was built by Ford of Canada in the United States. The T16 was an American-built version of the original English Carden-Lloyd Mk.VI tankette. It was longer than the original universal carrier with an extra road wheel on the rear bogie. The engine was a Ford Mercury delivering the power. Instead of the steering wheel controlling the combination brake/warp mechanism, the T16 had track-brake steering operated by levers.

Most of them were used by the Canadians as artillery tractors in Europe. After the war, surviving units were sold to Switzerland and the Low Countries.
