Pressed Steel Car Company Chicago (Hegewisch)
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Does anyone know a source for determining exactly what tanks were produced by the Pressed Steel Car Company during WWII? I have found snippets but no comprehensive list. My dad built tanks there before he enlisted in 1943. He remembers the riveted Grants, "open topped tanks" (Priests I assume), flail tanks (!), and shermans... just trying to confirm his memories.

Just from looking up "Pressed Steel" in the index of Hunnicutt's Sherman book: M3 Lee and Grant, M4, M4A1, M7B1, M12, M40, Turrets for the CDL, T3 (Sherman Flail), M32B1, M32B3, M30.

I'm not sure if they built any M4A3.

Thanks. Interesting. I guess his memory was pretty good.
I didn't expect the M4A1s - I didn't think they had a foundry there to cast hulls - wonder where they came from. Turrets as well. There were plenty of founderies nearby in South/East Chicago.
