Dodge Carryall WC53
Not many people know that Dodge is one of the pioneers of off-road vehicles and trucks on the American market. One of the first was the innovative and influential Carryall WC53 they introduced at the beginning of WW2 as a military vehicle. The Carryall got its name for using a 1939 Carryall body Dodge mounted on a WC54 chassis.
The WC Series Dodges were military vehicles with a three-quarter ton capacity. They also had tough underpinnings and durable 4.0-liter straight six cylinders delivering around 90 HP. This was one of the first closed off-road vehicles for transporting important military personnel. However, after the war, Dodge concentrated on the Power Wagon truck and decided the Carryall closed body was too rugged for the civil market.
