The Dodge WC-54 was the standard US Army ambulance of WW II. It was used by the Medical Corps to transport sick and wounded personnel. The WC-54 was used in all theatres of war.
The Dodge WC-54 was based on the well known 3/4 Ton Dodge T214 "Beep" (Big Jeep) chassis, which for this purpose got a longer wheelbase and adjusted suspension. The closed sheet-metal body was made by Wayne Body works. It offers room for a driver and four to seven patients plus a medic. If the fold-away bunk stretchers are used, four patients can be transported. The WC-54 was also used for purposes like as a radiovan for the Signal Corps.
The 3/4 ton Dodge Ambulance WC-54 of World War II had a much stronger chassis than its predecessor, the 1/2 ton truck WC-27. This included a heavier frame, springs and axle assemblies. The engine, transmission and transfer case were basically the same, but the axles had a much lower gear ratio to improve off-road performance. The truck was wider and had much better ground clearance. This unit was similar to the 1/2 ton in that the chassis was the same as the other trucks in the three-quarter series, as were the 1/2 tons. The bodies and equipment were nearly the same in both trucks. The WC-54 used the longer wheelbase and different springs also.
The mansonite interior side panelling, metal roof panelling and honey-comb insulation were retained. The folding bench seats, stretcher brackets and storage compartments were in the rear. The wheel wells in the rear of the body were much larger due to larger tires. Four litter patients could be carried. The double rear doors and folding step were used. The dome light and roof ventilator were on the top of the vehicle. The folding front bucket seats, driverís spotlight and large water heater under the dash panel were still there.
This vehicle used combat wheels and was built without the front mounted winch. The driving controls were the same as the other 3/4 ton trucks. No partition was used between the front and rear compartments inside. The spare tire was also carried on the left outside of the body, in the recessed panel just behind the drivers door. The rear body floor was metal with linoleum covering. The rear springs also were changed for a smoother ride. Although the 3/4 ton trucks looked nearly the same as the 1/2 tons they were really completely different with interchangeable parts. In 1944 the WC-54 was follow-up by the WC-64KD
