Used by the U.S. military and its allies, it remained in service after the war in a number of countries including France. The Dodge WC54 ambulance is an iconic vehicle from this period, and remains highly sought after by collectors—it is still possible to find ambulances in varying states of repair available for sale.
Based upon his own painstaking restoration of a WC54, the author presents in detail every element of this vehicle—chassis, cabin, electrical circuitry, accessories, and markings. He explains the adaptations made to the body, mechanics, and markings of the ambulance during the war, and shows the differences between the Dodge WC54s used by the U.S. military and those of the French army. Abundantly illustrated with more than 450 photos, this book is a perfect reference for all enthusiasts of military vehicles.
