WC51 / WC52 in Vietnam?

Recommended Posts

Has some one ever seen pictures of an WC51 / WC52 truck in Vietnam?

 

I wonder if they where still in use in the 1960´s or have they all been kicked out when the M37 has been introduced?

It would stand to reason that some may have got into the theatre via the French. I doubt they would have been used by the US formally. Most Vets I run into while driving my WC tell me "I remember those, ours had doors". Brent

There is some footage of NVA troops driving a heavily camouflaged GMC CCKW 353 over the Ho-Chi-Minh Trail though; probably ex-French. It may be that any WC's in Vietnam were used by either the ARVN or NVA.
