1944 Dodge WC-52 for sale.

Post by JeepDogJeep » Sat Apr 28, 2018 8:54 am

Hi all.

I'm new to G503, hope it's O.K. that I post a vehicle for sale here!

It's a 1944 Dodge WC-52. Mostly complete. Been titled and insured. A roller as they say.
Comes with a fair number of new and NOS spare parts. Six original "combat" rims. Has the seats (buckets) and the springs for the bottom cushion but not the back.
Has 5 new tires, and rim strips, new (reproduction) spare mount from Midwest Mil. (super heavy duty).
Gas tank is from an M-37 but is pretty close, no?
New bed kit, still in the box. Some dent's and dings, all the cloth and leather are gone but the steel is in pretty good shape.
Some rust through in spots, in the tool boxes. No cover. No glass.
Wiring is gone but she's really in overall good shape I think.
Engine turns over, but it all should be gone through. Previous owner had it running from a gas can. It's 12 volt.
New gas and brake lines, only some installed, new master and slave cylinders, new draft pad, original generator with NOS armature, bunch of nuts and bolts.
I'm looking to get 5000. But I might consider a trade for a Canadian Military Pattern (Chevy) C-15 in about the same condition.
Thanks!
Tried to add photos but they're "too large"? I have plenty of photos and take take more if needed!

I always look in the Power Wagon Forum for Dodge trucks, but some are here too. I look at this one for the lesser quality trucks, like chevys, etc. Just me I guess.

So, what are you saying? That this vehicle may be of lesser quality? I don't see where you're going. This sounds like a nice one to me.

A few photos of the WC-52. Not sure what this really might be worth. I bought it for 6500, and have about 2k in parts in it. But I might have paid too much for it. It does have rust spots, and I don't want to over value it. The tires, they were about 250 each and there's five of them.

Probably because someone told him he undervalued his WC-52 :shock:

I think you'll find that there's 3 grand in parts (new) just laying there waiting to be put on.

Why the significant up in price?

Well, I've got a lot into it.
I'm in my early 50's and lost my job just days before last Christmas and have been struggling mightily ever since.
Then I receive an insulting low-ball offer of three thousand and another to "part out" the truck.

I can't afford any of that and so I'm putting it much closer to what I have into it.
Anyone else buying this truck at the time would have paid the very same as I did. Parts would have cost the same, and this was nearly ten years ago, prices have gone up.

I'm not trying to be difficult, I need to sell it, but I can't afford to give it away either.
