1946 Dodge WC Pickup

I bought this barn find in February of 2017. It needed everything. So far we’ve got the engine running, and all safety issues fixed (Including: brakes, tires, wipers, etc). It is a 1946 Dodge ½-ton WC model. I completely rewired every thing and all seems to work well for a 6-volt system. Stopping isn’t the best so have to see what I need to do to improve braking. Body is pretty good except the bottom of both doors. Waiting for winter to break so I can get started on the bodywork.

    I just bought a '47 Dodge 1/2 ton. It is running, body is OK, but needs electrical work, wipers, blinkers, etc. Have you thought about converting to 12 volt? I hate to alter from original but 6 volt systems just don't work that well. ??

    We've got a 57 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1 purchased in the 70's in the U.K. driven 30 years or so and now it's a barn ( our barn) find. Can you fix it?
