Dodge WC-53 Owners

I am hoping to build a simple but useful register of Dodge owners in the UK, this page for owners of the Dodge WC-53 in particular. Finding parts for all Dodge trucks, particularly for the more obscure civilian or military variants, is less than easy especially in the UK.

Hopefully if people sign up to this simple WC-53 register (click here to join the Dodge register) it'll help people get in touch with fellow owners of WC-53 Dodges, restored or rusty, to aid their restoration or get advice & help.

Dodge WC53
I do not know the original history of this vehicle, anyone with any historical sources of information which might aid me in tracking down the original unit, division or even branch of service to which the vehicle belonged during WW2 would be most welcome.
The vehicle is fully restored and is a regular attendee to many UK based Military Vehicle shows.
1942 Dodge WC-53 Carryall
USA number (found on bonnet) 20165890, body number 4249-4217, chassis # 81577831
This truck was purchased in July 1996,and has been under restoration ever since!,it was only a shell on the frame,axles,wheels & transfer box,with all other parts supplied to complete the restoration, ( the dealer told me) including a NOS engine block,as the body was in good order I thought it would be a easy restoration,big mistake,over 8 A4 sheets have been filled with parts purchased,apart from the transfer box,all other components have been overhauled, now nearing completion, should be ready for the rally season this year.
