Auction Block: 1945 Dodge WC-58 Radio Car

May 3, 2018

While we wouldn’t go so far as to say that the WWII-era was a great time for the world, it did certainly produce some of the most iconic vehicles of all time. And while most aren’t in working condition anymore, this nearly immaculate 1945 Dodge WC-58 reconnaissance/command radio jeep is – and it could be yours.

Built by Dodge and equipped with a Signal Corps Radio set in front of the rear seat (and a 12-volt electrical system), this is exactly the kind of vehicle you might see communications officers tooling around in – be that on base or out in the field. It was also equipped with a heavy-duty winch on the front end, an entrenchment tool mounted to the back, and a classic jerry can outside the passenger side door (of which all are still accounted for). Originally producing 92 horsepower and 180 foot-pounds of torque, this incredibly well-cared-for example of an iconic wartime SUV can be yours, thanks to RM Sotheby’s and their upcoming June auction. No starting bid has been listed.
