My WC-57 Dodge Command Car ready for a drive!

 This Dodge WC-57 was on a peach farm in Georgia since it left the military. The farmer used it to drive through the peach orchard to check his peaches. The command car was kept in his barn the whole time he owned it. The man I bought my WC-57 from had wanted the Command Car ever since the first time He had seen it on the peach farm. He had stopped through the years and tried to buy it but the farmers answer was always, "no, I can't do without her". Then a period of time went by and He did not see the car so one day He stopped again and found out the farmer had died. Luckily the Command Car was still in the barn and He was able to purchase it. When He finally got ready to part with it I came along. I am so proud to have been able to add this truck to my collection. Absolutely no rust.
