Vehicle Identification - Type C: WWII WC 1-1/2 Ton 6x6 (1943-1945)

WWII WC 1-1/2 TON 6X6

Years mfg. 1943-45

Main distinguishing features:

  • Nearly identical to its counterpart-the 3/4 ton WC weapons carrier, with the addition of 2nd rear axle

  • 2 speed 1.5 to 1 ratio transfer case

  • Improved larger 5.83 axle gears

  • 230 flathead 6 cylinder engine

WC63 with Winch;
WC62 non-Winch

Designed as a troop carrier, the 6x6 was produced only as an open cab weapons carrier body with extended cargo bed. Out of the two 6x6 models available, model WC-62 was equipped without winch, while the WC-63 had an extended frame and added winch assembly.


The engineering code given this truck was T-223 and it appears as the first part of the engine serial number on the left side of the block. Since most parts were interchangeable with the 3/4-ton 4x4, availability is also good including a large stock of rear axle and suspension parts.
