This is our 1943 Dodge WC-56 Command Car restoration project. At this time we are just getting past the disassembly phase. This is a frame off "nut and bolt" restoration! All pieces will be taken apart and restored or replaced. The estimated time for this project is two years (and many man hours). This vehicle will be ideal to carry veterans and dignitaries in parades due to its spacious back seat and very identifiable look. These are also the very reasons it was taken out of service since it made it an easy target!"
The WC56 Truck, Command Reconnaissance, 3/4 ton, 4x4 w/o Winch Dodge (G502) was a command and reconnaissance vehicle akin to a large Willys Jeep. It did not prove popular as it was heavier and not as maneuverable as the Jeep, and its distinctive profile made it a target.
