S/N WC131742S indicates a it's a 1944
Some 1944 to 1946 WCs had this "War-Year" pressed steel rear end

The rear-end as it looked when we rolled it out of the barn


A little steel wool and see how it shines :-)


Painted and mounted


:-( Not all was well when the rear end was opened :-(

:-) But now we have this great lawn ornament! :-)


The replacements cleaned up real nice


Satelite image - amazing detail from that distance!


Orange pieces were everywhere it seemed
