What a coincidence, I saw one today for the first time in my 70+ years. They are a neat little machine. Wonder what the survival rate was for them in an air drop, this one was a very narrow tread machine and looked as though it would turn over easily. Were they all narrow tread? Joe

Have followed these for many years and never seen documentation of parachute deployment. Most were used by Seabees or Army engineers. There were some tested for glider transport, and I believe one pix of one in a C-46/C-47 IIRC. Would also like to see airdrop information. I own a U.S. Trac which was built of leftover Clark parts at wars end. Main difference is Clark used Waukesha engine/UST uses Continental. Ray at below link is a guru on these crawlers:

This is sitting in the woods behind my brothers house. His son bought it from a co-worker 20 years ago for $150.00.


He hauled it home in the back of a 1/2 ton pickup.


Pretty cool machine, hopefully get to working on it soon. You can tell by the seat how small the little fellow is.


Pretty rough, but not too far gone. and he got a second engine along with it.

Here is an account of one mission of the 879th engineers in WWII. A long read but well worth the time. The Clark was a maxed out load for the Waco gliders used in WWII, they ,Clarkairs' had to be as small as possible. Also the Waco Gliders were made by FORD. Ford also turned out a LOT of B -24's, My dad was a tail gunner on one over Europe. Glad he made it home alright. joe
