    From the body #...first two numbers (42) = 1942 production date.

    Go to google and type in "WC51 Dodge" and see what you can find.

    VIN or production number is 81589548, my book is at work could tell you the approximate month and year, Ill check it tomorrow. Body number is 4290 denoting open cab, and 28312 would mean its the 28312th to be produced.

    I'm currently restoring my WC-51, number 81560119. It was built on August 7th, 1942 according to my build card from Chrysler.

    Go the the Chrysler museum web site and apply for a copy of the original build card. It costs $25 and will tell you everything you want to know.
