Hey everyone, new member here. I have an interest in military vehicles and have been familiar with the rubber band Cletrac tractors that served with the US in WWII for many years, but I came across something I'd never seen before today.

Apparently these are Cletrac 600 gallon tracked fuel trailers produced in WWII. It seems as though Cletrac made the suspension and Heil made the tanks.

I'd never head of them before. Does anyone anything more about them? Designation, number produced, etc.? Also, this is the only photo I've ever seen of these. Does anyone know of any other photos of these?

That is very interesting, never seen anything like them.  Undercarriage sure looks right though.

I may be growing older, but I have never grown up.

I've never seen fuel trailers like those but I do have two very poor quality image of cargo trailers built off the same platform...

It's interesting there is so little documentation out there for these units...
