If the U.S. Army vehicle at Worldwide’s upcoming Auburn sale in June is indeed General George S. Patton’s Dodge WC57 Command Car, it could command big bucks. But without detailed documentation, will bidding suffer? We actually know the answer to that question already, since the same vehicle failed to reach its $60K minimum at RM Sotheby’s Auburn auction three years ago, likely because of the same lingering questions.

you keep saying in video it IS Pattons, but you actually disclaimer you don't know. A lot of hype and false statements in video. What you DON'T know, is what you don't know !
It's so difficult to verify, Patton used a number of vehicles during the war, jeeps to halftracks and even light tanks. Good luck trying to pin this down. As an aside, the machine gun mounted on this vehicle is not an M2 .50 cal, it's an M1919 .30 cal. And a question on the markings, in my (long past) Army days, the CO's vehicle was always HQ-6, not HQ-1...maybe they did it differently in WWll.
