The FWD Scout Car arriving in Atlanta, Georgia, on one of the hardest legs of the 1,500-mile winter U.S. Army torture test. To make it a “truck,” the Army added the bed of an escort wagon. They also added 42-inch wheels with solid rubber tires to replace the factory 36x4.5-inch pneumatics. The Scout Car was last seen in 1915 around San Diego being used by the Signal Corps.
