Question US Navy Dodge WC6 - next scratch project?

I recently finished my first scratch vehicle, Type 1 Ho-Ha Japanese WWII half-track. Always wanted to build it. Thankfully I found enough documentation.
Type 1 Ho-Ha (scratch project)

Now I'm thinking about next scratch project, another vehicle related to Pacific theater. I think everyone who's reading this watched Tora! Tora! Tora!. That's how I discovered these interesting USN vehicles like Dodge WC6. And this Dodge was always on my mind, like Ho-Ha...

Maybe I don't know how to look for information about USN land vehicles and I don't know where to look for blueprints and manual for Dodge WC6 but I hope you can help me with that. I need a lots of pictures, drawings, blueprints, informations. Anything about Dodge WC6 in USN service. Pictures of whole vehicle are pretty easy to find. Pictures of details, interior, chassis, etc. would be very useful and these ones are harder to find.

The most important thing for me are BLUEPRINTS(side view, front view, rear view, top view) with good quality. Something like the ones I used for Ho-Ha.

That would be all for now. I don't know what's gonna happen with this project. I'd really like to make it real but everything depends on what we'll find.

A worthy project. I always liked the WWII Dodge 3/4-ton vehicles and will be glad to see a Navy version.

Thanks a lot, whulsey!
50% of success!
The worst thing are still blueprints/drawings... They're really helpful. Designing parts is much easier with them.

Unfortunately these blueprints are for WC-57. It's a different Dodge, but pictures which are lower show WC6. Thanks. Picture documentation is always useful.

BTW, is there anyone who could tell me something about WC6 in USN service? Where they were used, which units, markings (this is important! I know that USN vehicles were painted light blue/grey and had black font markings). Could be schemes from websites, books or pictures from the era. Just need some specific markings. The best option would be WC6 from Pearl Harbor, but any other USN WC6 will be appreciated.

Ok, I think I have everything I need. No blueprints this time, but a great set of photos(1941 DODGE WC-6 COMMAND CAR 1/2 HALF TON WW2 ARMY MILITARY POWER WAGON JEEP). Saved them all in my "Dodge WC6 project" folder. Additionally whulsey's pictures too.

I hope to finish Dodge before December 7th. After my experiences with Ho-Ha, I can't promise it but I'll try to make premiere on that date. Theoretically, there's not much work with this vehicle.

Wish me luck!
I'll start "official" thread later today.

Thanks a lot for this picture. It's WC7. From what I know, the only difference between WC7 and WC6 was winch, right?
