1942 WC-43 K-50

Post by WP1 » Sat Aug 12, 2017 6:57 am

This is a rare WC-43 I bought back in the early 1990's in Texas. I'm finally getting around to restoring it. The telephone bed is missing so I'll put a regular WC-12 bed on it for now.

Here's a few more pictures. The Date of Delivery just happens to be my birthday ! The truck was in service at least until 1958 based on the anti freeze service date under the hood. The original hood number is still visible too.
