In the spirit of Memorial Day, this month’s mystery car is all military.
Thank you to everyone who commented on the vehicle photo on the HVA website and the HVA's Facebook page.
The vehicle in the photo is a WWII Dodge WC-62 and some may also call it a G-507 Dodge 6x6.
When the Army increased the size of its rifle squad from eight men to 12 men, a squad could no longer be carried in the 3/4-ton trucks. At the direction of Major General Courtney Hodges, Chief of Infantry, the design of the G-502 series trucks was modified to create a 48-inch-longer 6x6 vehicle. Most of the mechanical and some of the sheet metal parts were the same as those used in the 3/4-ton series. However, the transfer was dual ratio in the 1 1/2-ton version, while a single-speed unit was used on the 3/4-ton trucks. For more information on this vehicle, click here.
And the winner of the contest – Hugh Halladay from Scottsdale, AZ!
For guessing correctly Hugh Halladay will receive a free HVA ballcap. The same cap is available here, in the online store.
