National Geographic : 1945 Feb
o 1945 The Studebaker Corporation STUDEBAKER'S amazing new Weasel personnel and cargo carrier is now in action in the Pacific islands-advancing, as it has been doing in Europe, over terrain that seems impos sible for any mechanized military vehicle to negotiate. The Weasel glides forward swiftly and stealthily in mud and swamp as well as on sand and snow-floats like a boat in lakes and rivers, as its powerful Studebaker Champion engine " propels it from shore to shore. This new "Champion" in invasion warfare not only trans ports men and supplies but also serves to carry wounded back to hospital areas. It's geared to clamber up seemingly im possible grades on its flexible, rubber-padded tracks. Built by Studebaker, powered by the famous Studebaker Champion engine, the Weasel supplements such other Stude baker war production assignments as Wright Cyclone engines for the Boeing Flying Fortress and heavy-duty military trucks.
