I just love the T-84 jeep transmission. But was it used in any other vehicles?

The short answer is yes! This question comes up fairly often so I’m repeating a previous post for the newer folks.  Also, the T-84 was used in the Studebaker Weasel.

The T-84 was not just used in the WW2 jeep.  The jeep used the T-84J.  Below are listed several (but not all) of the various vehicles that used a T-84.  I didn’t bother to list them but there was at least one car, a Studebaker, that used a T-84 after the war.

The T-84 gets a rap for being a bad and weak transmission.  You have to wonder why it was used in some many cars (and trucks!) for so long a period of time, if better transmissions were available.
