1942 Dodge WC 57 Command Car Doors

Post by BobRedfern »

Just wanted to reach out to all the folks on the Forum and see if anyone might have a set of doors for my Command Car. I know it might be slim, but thought I would ask anyway.... thanks, Bob Redfern, Blythewood, SC

Hi Bob,

I have a WC57 that I hope to restore someday, and I was thinking about going this route:

You need to go to this link: http://www.canvasco.com/ and select "Dodge WC Series" on the left side of the site and select "doors."

I believe the £380 translates to about $532. That doesn't seem too bad if I did that conversion correctly. Not sure what shipping would be, but I hope it would be better than the $4,250 before shipping quote I received from Beachwood here in the states. I don't think they do them very often, so it's a one off production specific to my half-ton command car. Seemed a little high to me, so I passed on that quote.

Good luck!

I think Beachwood Canvas can also do them. Call Tom.

I got mine from the Worthings over in UK. I think they are now canvasco. ... they are good quality and work well
