This Army Drab WWII 1942 Dodge G502 Model WC-52 Type B 4X4 3/4 ton military weapons carrier with PTO winch is a solid running and driving vehicle ready to be restored or used the way it is. This WC-52 has been a hunting and camping truck in the high Rocky Mountains near Livingston Montana for many years and I bought it from the long-time owner. The body is original forward of the cowl and windshield frame with the exception of the added headlights attached to the tops of the headlight guards (which have now been removed). I purchased another one, a WC-51, to get the carrier box, which is extremely hard to find. The box is strapped to the back frame and needs to be installed. A battery box is welded in where the passenger seat was and needs to be cut away to allow the box to fit correctly. The box is solid but has quite a few dents which can be fixed. I am also including an extra front floor, rear bumpers, running boards, extra gas tank and other misc. parts I took off the parts truck. The body has very straight and solid western sheet metal. The truck has the stock Braden MU PTO power take off winch with 1/2" cable. A roller fairlead cable guide with support brackets have been added. The original gas tank has been rebuilt and put back into service. The driver original seat it there and the passenger seat is missing. A passenger seat can be fabricated by using the driver seat as a pattern. The horn button is missing. There are a number of switches added to the dash to control the add-on lights (which have been removed but are included). The truck has the correct Dodge 230 CID L-head 76 HP inline six cylinder motor with stock four speed manual floor shift transmission and single speed transfer case with in/out four wheel drive without hubs. I had the motor rebuilt and it has about one hour of running time. These WC's did not come with a high-low transfer case and were designed to get in fast with the two lower gears and travel at road speed in third and fourth. The five combat wheels are in good shape but need to be restored. The truck has four new Cooper Discoverer Radial STT R285/75x16 all-terrain tires. The truck runs and drives well and the winch works normally. The brakes don't work and need to be repaired or service. I think they just need to be bled. Included is a new front bumper assembly and winch mount support. Also included is the new set of steel top corner brackets to make the frame for the canvas top. I have a shop manual on CD-ROM that is included. Do not miss this opportunity to own and drive a desirable 42 Dodge Weapons Carrier. The truck is $5,000 .
