Does anyone have a Master Parts list book in PDF for the WC-21?

You can buy a hard copy from vintagepowerwagons.com. I just got one. Has everything in it.
Also, you can still read it if the power goes out. It's cordless. I am in the process of a frame off restoration
on my WC21. Same model my Dad drove through Europe, from D-Day, Battle of the Bulge, Rhine river
crossing. He was in the 35th Inf, 448th AA AW Bn. He made it to 100 yrs old. he will be gone 5 yrs Memorial Day 2020.

Do you have any pictures of your dad's WC-21 that was part of D-Day and beyond? The 1941 WC-21 was typically only used overseas where it had either been already deployed at the start of the war, or was early invasions/deployments such as Burma, or Africa. I would love to see pics of its used on mainland Europe 1944 and after. :giggle:

My dad was in the 35th infantry, 448th AAA Bn AW.
Here is a picture of my dad stateside training in the Mohave desert for North Africa. At the last minute, he was sent to Scotland to train for Operation
Overlord. He is sitting on the 40 mm Bofors gun. One of the other pics, is him and his buddy goofin around in France next to a CCKW. The straight on pic of the Dodge WC21is the truck my dad (driver) had. He told me that while they were in France, he found a pot belly stove in a farmhouse. He ended up installing it in the back of the WC21. They used it in the back of the truck during the Battle of the Bulge. I guess that was the first RV.img007.jpg

Really good looking work on the truck. Am interested in the backdrop on the wall--was that painted on directly etc., please fill us in on what was the story of the mural. I have similar work on my shop wall done by a very talented painter friend- will get some pictures to post.

Thanks for the pics! Our Dad was a combat Engineer (6th ESB, 203rd Engr C BN) on D-day. We are currently restoring a 1941 WC-21 that we are doing as a 29th Infantry Engineer Truck which they were in support of. You have provided great proof that there were indeed WC-21 in the Europe combat areas. Your WC-21 looks great! It is almost at exactly the same point of restoration as ours. Wow....your art on your wall is incredible. Thanks for responding. Please keep posting your restoration progress. thanks - Bill

I will have to send you a copy of a document that my Dad picked up in Europe. He found it on the ground, and it was from a guy from the 216th FA Bn.
It was from March of 1945, The Rhine River crossing. Talk to you later. Tom
