The Dodge WC12 was part of a family of vehicles known as the “Dodge WC series,” which included a wide range of trucks and other vehicles produced by Dodge for the US military during World War II. The WC12 was produced in relatively small numbers compared to some of the other vehicles in the series, with an estimated 4,729 units built.

Some vehicles were also sold or given to other countries after the war, and they continued to see service in various parts of the world for many years.
