Dodge WC-54 Ambulance

Produced from 1942 to 1944, the Dodge WC-54 was the standard US ambulance. Roof-mounted slings and folding-bench seating provided room for four stretchers or six seated patients. This ambulance, delivered April 19, 1944, was among the last WC-54s produced. At the end of the war, it was given to the French Armed Services, who used it until 1985.
