1947 WW2 WC.

Currently one of the hottest rides on the market, you just don’t find as rust free and reliable as you see here. Runs, drives excellent, driven at least monthly… great solid truck, Mil-spec serviced and very low mileage.

A-ww2-wc built during World War 2. This old Mopar came to me about 4 years ago looking pretty much like it does now. The previous owner had antiqued this old truck and then clearcoated it to preserve it. It’s rock solid, dependable and looks JUST RIGHT. The engine is the 1950 Chrysler "Spitfire" which was the biggest straight six that Chrysler made. A lot of torque but a 45 mph truck. The trans is a 4 speed with 1st being a granny gear. Engine starts and runs well, no matter cold or hot and it and shifts as it should (pre-syncro). Tires are all new. Gas tank was was cut in half and cleaned by Vintage Power Wagons who. guarantees their work for a lifetime and the tank displays a brass tag to verify. Mostly stock with new fuel lines and also a new float assembly in the gas tank. .The electrical system is converted from 6 to 12 volts. (new alternator, ballast resistor, fan belt, battery, and new light bulbs all around. Theres also a new turn signal unit on truck, rebuilt wiper motor and new vacuum hoses. The brake system was completely replaced with new componets from VPW. This includes all new brake lines, all new wheel cylinders, all new shoes, all new axle seals, and new felt in the front 4wd universal system. Interior was redone before I purchased the truck. Has a new brown vinyl seat cover and the seat even has a crude air ride system that lets the driver adjust the amount of air that can escape when riding over rough terrain. The headliner is also redone as well as vinyl covering on the A-posts. Truck has black rubber mat on the floor as it should.
