WC-10 WC-17 WC-26 Truck, 1/2 ton, 4x4 Dodge WC Carryall (G505)
The Dodge WC-10 and the very similar WC-17, and WC-26, are 1/2 ton carryall body trucks with slightly different engines and other small differences. All are part of the WC model series G-505, built by Dodge during 1941 or early 1942. If you don't have the vehicle dataplate, to differentiate you must know the U.S. Government registration number (Army number on the hood) or the serial number which can be found stamped on the left front frame.
