Response to some remarks on 6x4 armored cars
"The American M1 6x4 armored car was built by James Cunningham, Son & Company in Rochester, NY. This wheeled AFV came in two similar versions, the T4, two units introduced in 1931, and the M1, standardized in 1934, with a dozen units built (it's not clear whether the pair of T4 cars were retro-designated as M1s)."
According to R. P. Hunnicutt's ARMORED CAR A HISTORY OF AMERICAN WHEELED COMBAT VEHICLES, the Ordnance Department designed the T4 and two were built by James Cunningham, Son and Company and 1931. After tests at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds, they were standardized as the M1. A total of 20 of these cars were produced up to March 1938.
