he M35 army truck was developed in the late 1940s by General Motors Corporation. It was intended to replace wartime vehicles. The design was commonly known as the Eager Beaver. Initial production contract was for 5 000 trucks. First vehicles were delivered to the US Army in 1950. The M35 was planned as an interim vehicle, however as soon as Korean War began, US Army needed these trucks in large numbers. By early 1980s over 150 000 M35 series trucks were produced. Production ceased in 1988. These trucks still remain in service with some countries.
The M35 series military trucks were simple in design and technology. Vehicle has a payload capacity of 2.27 t payload capacity of road and 4.5 t on hard surface roads. The baseline troop/cargo carrier has removable seats. Cargo area is covered with bows and canvas cover. This military vehicle can also tow trailers or light artillery pieces with a maximum weight of 4.5 t on roads and 2.7 t over rough terrain.
The bonnet cab accommodates driver and two passengers. Most cabs have a removable canvas cover, however some were fitted with hard tops. The windscreen can be folded down. Some trucks has a machine gun ring over the cab.
