  1967 Dodge Charger: High-End Restomod with Original Mopar 383 Power Without a constricting budget, this high quality build was aimed at recreating most of the factory look of a 1967 Dodge Charger while sneaking in all the best modern amenities.Thus far, most of the Readers' Rides submissions we've featured here on hotrod.com have been of the homebuilt hero variety—as in, someone who saved up and bought parts when they could, using hard work and automotive ingenuity to build their dream car. There is another way to get to a similar end goal, but it also involves plenty of hard work and time.

The Allies never had anything this cool!

Custom vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, and you don't have to look any further than this 1941 Dodge Command Car for proof of that. With a vintage military body sitting atop late-model truck chassis, this custom creation is one serious restomod.

The Dodge WC Command Car was a versatile vehicle used in World War II and later. To meet the needs of the military, this truck was built in a wide variety of body styles, and this four-door body might be the coolest of them all with its rounded door openings, two rows of seating and a removable top and doors. Those huge, flat fenders are easy to see the resemblance to the Power Wagon, which went into production after the war.

Dodge the Enemy in General Patton’s World War II Command Car

  Dodge the Enemy in General Patton’s World War II Command Car Like many individuals, General George S. Patton was a complicated figure. As commander of the Third Army, Patton had little time to dawdle. "Old Blood and Guts," as he came to be known, had an ardent desire for battle and this early-to-mid-1940s Dodge WC-57 command car likely carted Patton about Europe as his troops liberated the region from Nazi oppression.

Although this Command Car may have started out as a U.S. Army grunt, today it has been fully restored wearing a bright orange paint job to ensure this truck will spark conversation wherever it goes, and the new soft top and doors are a guarantee you'll get noticed even more.

Under that vintage military body is a three-quarter-ton Chevrolet truck chassis powered by a big-block 454 cubic-inch V8, and if this truck was big and bold enough, this one has been lifted and rides on huge 37x12.50-inch tires. This modern chassis comes with conveniences such as power steering and power brakes, and it also has cool details like a hidden stereo system and hand grenade accents throughout the cabin. The digital odometer shows this truck has been driven just 1,745 miles since it was built, and the overall condition backs up mileage reading. Whether you're heading to a car show or off-road getaway, this 1941 Dodge WC Command Car is literally ready for anything.

If you're looking for a truly custom classic vehicle, it will be hard to find anything more unique than this 1941 Dodge Command Car restomod. This bad boy will be up for auction at the GAA Classic Cars Auction on July 23-25 alongside more than 600 other classic and collectible vehicles.
