Subject: Dodge WC-59 Telephone Maintenance Truck 3/4 ton 4x4

This Photo set contains 47 photos of a Dodge WC-59 Telephone Maintenance Truck.   I took these at the Mid Atlantic Air Museum's World War II Weekend in June 2012.  The vehicle shown is a restored example on display as a living history exhibit. 

from Wikipedia

"The Dodge WC series was a range of light military trucks produced by Dodge during World War II. The series included weapon carriers, telephone installation trucks, ambulances, reconnaissance vehicles, mobile workshops and command cars.  WC was a Dodge model code: W for 1941 and C for half-ton rating.

The WC-59 was a signals truck, designed to install and repair telephone lines. Based on the same chassis as the WC-54, but with a wheelbase increased by 50 cm. The spare wheel was carried behind the seats, with a step ladder fitted to where the spare wheel would have been. 549 were built. The bed was known by the Signal Corps as the K-50 truck, and was fitted to both Dodge and Chevrolet chassis."
