Above: T7 Armored Car W1314 while assigned to the 2nd Cavalry. Below: T7 Armored Car W1312 showing the hood latched in the open position for additional cooling (the T7's used air-cooled engines) and a view of the opening in the turret top that allowed the .50 caliber machine gun to reach a near vertical angle.


Below: Two T7 Armored Cars during construction. The view of the second vehicle to the left of the main image is washed out, but the engine access doors and the hinges of the armored covers for the driver and assistant driver's windows can be seen on the nearer vehicle. All of the T7s were hand built at the Holabird Quartermaster Depot.
