The Fordson WOT (from War Office ‘type’ or ‘truck’) was a military truck produced by British Ford during the Second World War. From 1939 to 1945, approximately 130,000 units were produced at Ford’s Dagenham plant, of which almost half were WOT2s.[1]

Five models were produced, WOT1, WOT2, WOT3, WOT6 and WOT8. The WOT1, 2 and 3 were rear-wheel drive and had the cab behind the engine; WOT6 and 8 were all-wheel drive with a cab over the engine. The same engine was used across the lineup: Ford’s 3.6-liter side-valve V-8 gasoline engine producing 85 horsepower at 3,800 rpm. The transmission was a four-speed manual with additional reduction gear for four-wheel drive models.
