Description of 1941 Dodge WC27 WWII Ambulance

Dodge produced its first prototypes of dedicated military trucks in late 1939. (1/2 ton 4x4 VC series) At the outset of World War II Dodge produced the G-505 WC ½ ton series of military light trucks in 38 individual models, thousands of some models were produced, while only a few of some others were produced. The WC ½ ton trucks replaced the 1940 VC-1 to VC-6 ½ ton Dodge trucks which were also part of the G505 series. 79,771 of the ½ ton trucks were produced during late 1940-1942 under War Department contracts. WC models 1 to 50 were part of the 1/2 ton range and were 80% interchangeable in service parts with the later 3/4 ton models.
Entering production during 1941 to early 1942, they were specifically designed to serve as military ambulances. These early variants are distinguishable from the later ones by having a curved radiator grill, while the later ones (WC51 onwards) featured a flat grill. These versions were given a longer 123 in (3,100 mm) wheelbase.

This particular vehicle landed in Normandy and has ALL ORIGINAL parts. Once we received this vehicle we combed through all the parts and replaced anything that was missing or off brand with eraOEM correct parts. We have all the original ambulance misc. parts including stretchers, surgical tables, first aid kits, shovel, pick ax, ax, siren, decals, flags, fire extinguisher and more.
Brand new, battleship grade linoleum and rubber cab floor mat has been installed. Honestly we would love to keep this beautiful, functional World War II ambulance but we feel that it could be put to better use. Feel free to give us a call or stop by to check it out. We have a massive collection of used and new firearms as well as a growing military collection of vehicles and memorabilia.
