|Production History: The Checker Cab Company produced 6,664 "Water Buffalo's" from 1942 through 1944.
The first production model was the CC-1, followed by the CC-1A, CC-1B and finally the CC-1C.
This "Water Buffalo" was produced under contract 374-2872 W-695, production order number: T-5255, for a total of 3,000 units
produced under this contract.
The U.S. Army Registration Number range assigned to this contract was 0293082 through 0295582. Mathematically, the
registration number for this trailer should be roughly: 0294301 (if all trailers that were produced by the Checker Cab Company
were accepted by the U.S. Army and none were diverted to any of the other branches of the military or used for testing, and
every trailer produced was assigned a registration number in sequence in relation to the manufactures serial number).
