WC56 Dodge Command Car, 3/4 ton, 4x4
Dodge produced the WC-56 3/4 ton 4x4 Command Car from 1942 to 1944, part of the Dodge 3/4 ton WC series of trucks. The Command Car was used for transporting officers and for reconnaissance missions. Its distinctive profile made it a target, however, and production was soon phased out. The WC-56 differs from the WC-57 Command Reconnaissance Car in that the WC-57 was equipped with a winch. The WC-58 Radio Car is identical to the WC-57 (with winch) but has provisions for a radio set to be mounted in the rear seat area.
The Olive-Drab.com Gallery has a photo of Lt. Gen. Patton with his WC-56 or WC-57 Command Car.
