Restoring WW2 Ambulance

The National World War II Museum is engaged in a project to restore a WC-9 Field Ambulance named "Charity."  The goal is to make the vehicle resemble one that would have been used by Allied forces in Italy during 1943.  Photographs of the ongoing restoration, and a sound clip of the engine running are available on the museum's blog post.
