I was browsing through some photographs of Chevrolet trucks from 1941 World War II and found a photo posted on Jim Carter's Chevrolet Parts website [img]http://jimcartertruckparts.com/images/WWII%20Cab9.jpg
Can anyone identify which Chevrolet truck is in this photograph? Did the windscreen open out via crank handle like this... [img]http://www.oldchevytrucks.com/images/WIH355z.jpg
How far did the truck in the Jim Carter photo's windscreen open out?
I am from Australia and I have a 1940 Chevrolet 30 CWT ex-Australian Army truck. It has a windscreen that pivots open to horizontal as seen in this photograph of a "Suburban" that had seen better days ....[img]https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/059816
I am trying to work out whether the Jim Carter photograph has a similar windscreen opening arrangement or whether the Australian Army made their own modifications to the windscreen? These windscreens were fitted to Suburbans, Less than 1 ton, [img]https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/P03369.002

My truck had its cabin made by a local Australian manufacturer "Holden". The cabin differs to the fully imported "Lend Lease" vehicles. My truck has quarter vent side windows and leg vents located on the cab sides positioned in-between the firewall and the "A" Pillar.
I hope the links from the Australian War Memorial work for you in the US of A?
