  23. Thats brilliant Jimmy..i am especially interested in early WCs as i have just paid a deposit on and secured a 1942 WC51 tonight...chassis number..81563573. My preference was a 52 but this 51 came along and looks and runs great so i guess i will have to do without a winch....:-) Be interested to compare notes on your early 51 and mine when i get it some to sunny Suffolk. Regards Lloyd
  24. Thats a LOVELY looking WC51.....a real credit to you.I especially like the blue drab serial numbers......is that the correct number and do you have the build card from chrysler for it ? Does it possess all the early features ? regards Lloyd
  25. Why put the sparewheel next to the driver so he can't get out (Dodge). __________________ I can answer that....because in the USA when you drive on that side of the road.....you got out of the vehicle path side. In the UK during WW2 the drivers stepped out into the flow of traffic.........thats apparently why the "gap" was put in the weapons carriers. or am i talking rubbish ? Regards Lloyd PS Distributor posistion on an M8 or an M20.....poxy nightmare..:-)
