My WC-54 . . . Interior views.

Post by mdeevl » Wed Feb 11, 2009 4:20 pm

Finally got some interior pics of my baby!

Sorry for the large pics :? For some reason they wouldn't resize correctly.

That's a dog-tag 'addressograph' in the glove box. It was used to make a stamping of a dog-tag onto paper forms.

I was very lucky to find her pretty much as you see her! (I did have to add the medical accessories, LOL)

The seats were as is, covered with synthetic leather.
Unfortunately, the original civilian owner, a WWII vet, has passed-away, so I have no history on her.

Man that is a beautiful truck. I have wanted one of those for years and years you are sooooo lucky and I am soooo green with envy. I think if I had that truck I would pull the rear door skins and see if they could be straightened or possibly duplicated. That would really make it perfect. If nothing could be done I would still just stand in front of it and GRIN.

What paint did you go with on the exterior? Absolutely beautiful truck.

USAFpj,

The paint you see has been on her for at least 20 years, through the last two owners. The original civilian owner has passed away, so I have no way of knowing what work was originally done on her, or where she came from. :(

The last owner and I have only done maintenence, and I added the accessories to give the interior an active duty WWII appearance.

She has become a rolling time capsule, and I am lucky to have the opportunity to care for her, and share her with the public!
