Dodge WC54 Ambulance Book Review
By David L. Veres
|Date of Review||October 2022||Title||Dodge WC54 Ambulance|
|Format||160 pages, hardbound||MSRP (USD)||$37.95|
Part of the legendary “WC” range of versatile military trucks, the 3/4-ton Dodge WC54 Ambulance remains an icon of America’s wartime manufacturing muscle, planning, and production.
Over 26,000 of the rugged, reliable, field-serviceable vehicles saw widespread WWII, Korea, and postwar use.
Now Fabien Raud – having restored his own example – pens a personal panegyric to WC54s in this compact, picture-packed chronicle. Part of the Casemate Illustrated range, Raud’s handy, 160-page hardback comes replete with WC54 details – bumper-to-bumper, inside-and-out.
Steele yourself for massive measures of minutiae. And prepare yourself for lots of eye-candy.
Like period photos – both color and B&W. And close-ups – vintage and current. Plenty of diorama ideas here!
Raud also provides original manufacturer drawings, equipment storage shots, tech-manual art, interior images, chassis details, and much, much more.
Truck modelers and enthusiasts will love it. Variants. Mechanics. Markings regulations. Even Dodge spare parts packaging. They’re all here.
