Hi Ken, again a nice shot of your jeep. So far I think we're only missing a shot from beneath . But seriously I never tire of jeep shots so please keep them coming.
Do you by any chance happen to know what kind of vehicle is parked to the right of your jeep? Never seen that one before.
Hi Rene, the vehicle next to my Jeep is a 1940 Dodge VC-1 command car, as you can see from the shape and the top of the windscreen it was originally intended as a closed cab body with full height side doors, however the bodywork was militarized from the windscreen backwards. I think there are only about five surviving restored examples in the world. There are other models in the VC range, a carryall, a pickup a panel van. As this appeared to be an expediency measure certain parts of the front engine compartment still used chromed and stainless steel parts, such as the long central hood hinge, the grill adornments, the windscreen opening brackets etc. The one shown in the previous drone shot had it's original hood number painted on the underside of the engine covers both side, whereas the one in the accompanying shot has the number on the top of the hood.
