In Case You Are Bored, What Truck is This?

Recommended Posts

I saw this truck coming up behind me yesterday. It was up and passed before I could grab my phone. Sorry for lack of detail, but was wondering what truck it was.

You folks are good! It would have taken me hours of searching even if I had seen the front. Sorry if it much of a challenge. Thanks for the ID!

I'll second it on the Dodge WC-51 call....looks like the one my friend had years ago...usually they have a canvas top on the back end, this one just shows the bows.

It was pretty cool seeing it in my rearview mirror. It took me by surprise. Not something I see everyday.

 

I'll have to keep my eyes peeled for it.

Small gas cap and cast iron tie down hooks makes it a 1942 model.

Wharf master Wc doesn't stand for weapons carrier so you know. W was the designation for 1941 trucks and the designation carried on past 41 and c 1/2 ton even though 42-45 trucks that where over 1/2 ton used them. So you know trying to be informative
