The rather prosaic answer to your question lies in the coding of the General Motors Corporation of USA who produced the vehicle. "D" designated a vehicle designed in 1942 - "U" indicated a utility (in this case amphibious) vehicle - "K" showed it had all wheel drive - and "K" indicated two powered rear axles. I'd like to be able to say I knew that, but really, I looked it up in Wikipedia! Tony Maguire
