    Dodge WC 51 or 52 or Canadian Wanted

    yep took me a while but the one I got in the end wasn't even for sale I just got chatting to the owner and he decided he would sell it to me. just give it time and the right one will find you. I looked at a few but they just didn't seem the right one for me at the time.

    Dodge wc rolling the side of the tilt up.

    Ah so that's what's missing then.. so those bits are attached to the outside of the wooden uprights then I guess?
  3. Ok then I am guessing something is missing off my tilt.. I was going to roll the sides up but there are no straps to do it on the inside.. it has the buckles on the outside of the tilt as you would expect but nothing on the inside strap wise... Any advise would be great. Thanks. Martin.

    I am waiting for the v5 to come in my name then I can get the build card and go from there.. someone did tell me that the military markings will be nearly impossible to find now.

    D day 2019 events.

    Hello all.. well as I have only just got my 1942 Dodge wc51 I am not going to be able to get in on any of the Normandy tours as they were all fully booked last year from what I have heard. What other events are going on then as I would love to be able to take mine to an event as I sure it would have been envolved in some way during d day. Thanks for any help with this. Martin.

    1942 dodge wc51

    Thanks.. saw it at great Dorset steam fair and just got chatting to the bloke.. while Chatting i said I have been after one for a fair time.. he saw pics of other vehicles I have and then decided he would sell it to me as he shouldn't really be driving it due to a health problem.. stuck a deal there and went the 240 miles round trip to pick it up today.. Plans are to sort a few little jobs out and use her.. she came with a really good tilt, doors a few spares and a 9 X 9 tent. ... She's even got a heater fitted for the passenger... Should help keep the other half happy!! Lol 🙂

    how to find out a dodge wc51 bonnet number

    Ah ok.. well I will see what I can find when I get it back on Saturday. I thought there may have been a record somewhere so it is more like a case of if it's not on the dodge now it is gone for ever... I will still try and get the build card as it is nice to have.
