Anyone know where I can get parts for a 1940 1 ½ ton LC 4X4 VF405, or get another truck for parts ? I'm in California. Are there WW11 Military truck salvage yards in California? My recently acquire truck isn't as pretty as the picture but is the same model. Might need tranny ,possibly other parts. I plan to make it into a simple fire truck with a water tank + pump in the bed of truck. Thanks, Chris

Start with Vintage Power Wagons. There are no military salvage yards with that model anywhere in the world.

The early pre-war Dodge 4X4 trucks are exceedingly rare, as few were produced.

They were mostly custom engineered for military use from conventional trucks.

You will have better luck with these guys: https://aths.org/

Thanks for the tip DG. My info says only 500 were made for USA, about 6000 were sent to Russia under lend-lease. I might have a hard time scrounging military parts from Russia at this time.
