VEHICLE / PROJECT OF THE MONTH - (Mike Gamble’s Dodge WC-62) This Dodge WC-62 was built in 1943 and sent to Europe probably that same year.  After the war, it found its way to Norway where it stayed in service until the late 1980's.  It was then brought back to the US by a collector and sold several times where it ended up in Commerce, Texas.  Mike Gamble bought the Dodge in 2010.  After working on several other vehicles, he started a motor pool restoration on the Weapons Carrier in 2011.  As it stands now, the front end is off and the engine compartment and front end are being refurbished and realigned as the vehicle had been in a front end crash at some point.  Once the front if the vehicle is complete, the wiring and storage boxes will be cleaned up.
