Thank you for the pics. They answered all my questions about paint and even the placement of the lathe, drill press and vices.

Default Truck, 15-cwt 4x2 Machinery , Type " K Light"

I'm posting in this thread as I found a contract card for Truck, 15-cwt 4x2 Machinery , Type " K, Light"

The way I read this card, is that SM.6050 was the order for the Chevrolet C15 4x2 trucks, and the order BM.V.2276 is for the welder plant sets. A clerk has been adding up the cost per unit.

SM.6050 was for Chevrolet 15-cwt 4x2 trucks allocated with WD Census number range Z 5451950to 5455219. I do not think all 3,270 trucks from this order were converted to KL's, though.

Here are some quotes from the Workshop Trucks thread:

It superceded "K" which was a 3 ton 6x4 which carried electric and gas welding equipment as well as two forges, anvils and blacksmiths tools.
