Default WWI Liberty Trucks (Plural) Questions

Mroz (Albert Mroz, Illus Ency of Am'cn Trks/Comm'l Cars) says there were THREE "classes" of the WWI standardized Liberty trucks, but fails to mention any except the Class B 3-5Ton, saying the others had much lower production...
I have a note re' a Class A Liberty, saying it had USA cast in radiator like the B (which could imply the third "class" didn't)...
I found a site saying the "A" was smaller, was a modified B with a 27HP engine (B engine 52HP or so) and that "it weighed 11/2 ton" (which could mean it's rating was 11/2 Ton), that it was used for Recon and other duties where the lower gas consumption was important.
Which leaves the third "class" a mystery, so far; lots of Class B hits online, but I didn't find much on others, altho didn't search in depth.
ALSO: Wiki lists two "series" of class B, giving a list of the differences; another site (firetrucks-atwar.com??) mentioned a THIRD "series" of the B, but gave no other info.
Does anyone know of a definitive reference book or online site that might have this info?? Will be posting on the military veh sites in nothing turns up. Any comments appreciated!! Many thxx!! Bud
