Hello Tom

Here are some details on Our 1942 Dodge WC-52

Serial No : 81530511
Build Date : May 28 1942
Body No : 5156
Hood No : 20466175 - I think this number has been made up maybe you can confirm if it's correct
Hood No Color: Drab blue
Engine No : T214-213875 - Not the original engine according to the build card.

We have only just obtained this vehicle so so still very much learning about it, but hope this helps

Hi - My father was in the Korean War and I have a copy of an "Offense Report" where he was "apprehended" for speeding (23 in a 15 mph zone !) in a 3/4 ton 4x4, s/n USA 2429299. How can I find out what kind of 3/4 ton 4x4 that truck was ??
Thanks,
Steve

The number format isn't right for Command Car, Carryall, Ambulance, or something like a Telephone Truck so that just leaves a plain old 4x4 Weapon Carrier

Hey Tom to understand more about the command car I have . What can you tell from the serial on the frame. No body tag and I cannot see a number on the fire wall. All data plates are gone.

As far as I know, Tom has been banned from this site.

They say he is active on facebook, but I don't mess with that.

You might try clicking on the 'Contact' link under his name in the sidebar of one of his posts.
His email address may still be valid.
