    Test drive went great yesterday. The engine worked great and the clutch worked properly, and the transmission shifted fine. The brakes worked well also.

    Got full coverage insurance on it this week from Hagerty. Still need to get it titled and registered in my name. Thanks to Les Schwab, I now have two spare tires. Still need to do some odds and ends such as engine oil and filter change, mount the rest of the tail gate brackets, and the draft pads and a few other things. I have the canvas and the data plates on order. Still trying to sell the machine gun mount if anyone is interested. I wish someone made doors for the open cab dodges.
    The frame number on my WC63 is: 82317088. Can someone calculate the hood number? Also, can anyone out there make the map board and the tool box lids for a WC63?

    WC63 ran great doing the parade. No pictures due to the fact that I was driving. There were a bunch of MV's that arrived after me in a convoy. Unfortunately, even though I reached out to them, I was greeted with hostility because I dared to criticize their lack of communication about the event on the MVCoO page on FB. No contact info or any info about the event. My complaint was, if they wanted more MV's in the parade, they should have mentioned it on club FB page. My last parade or event. I will just drive it around on weekends when I feel like it. I don't need the drama. So sad. I thought we were supposed to try and build the hobby. Apparently I was wrong. I will not be attending any club events due to these people. One woman in particular who was very rude to me.

    It's too bad some people have to behave like that.

    Last two weekends, I've taken it out on the backroads around here. Yesterday, I drove it to work to show my co-workers. I need to take and post some more pictures.
    Does anyone have any tips for bleeding the brakes on a WC63? I installed a new master cylinder and wheel cylinders and have bled the brakes several times, but I still have air in the lines and have to pump the brakes to get a firm brake petal.

    Aw, the poor dears.

    Their kitty-feelings got all hurt apparently because you pointed out to them what should have been completely obvious.

    Bless their little hearts.

    Maybe I missed it here, but did you ever get a story about that rig's service? Where it "did duty' (if any)?

    Also, the Admin for the page, (which is not controlled by the MVCCO despite its name) banned me from posting for 1 week. I did not use foul language or threaten anyone. I did not even get any notice or explanation for why I was banned. Apparently, someone was butthurt. So I left the page.

    I have no idea where it served. I have not found any hood numbers. One person said that the VIN, was within the range for these trucks, but another person said, that the VIN was for a 1950's Dodge truck. So I'm confused. The only data plate on it, was for the bed of the truck. All of the data plates for the dash were missing. I'm thinking, that it is a early WC63 despite having the late composite bed. I think this, because it has the early seats, push-pull light switch, and Zenith carb.
