Default No...

The Models ACX-453 and AC-453 were apparently either civilian or US Army orders.

Vanderveen notes the ACX-504 was supplied to the British Army following cancellation of French contract in 1939/40.

Im guessing the GMC offered for sale is a CC-453. Pretty rare truck, as GMC only built a total of 736 4x2 trucks during 1939-42.

Heres one pictured in Normandy 2004...
