The Korean war created some shortages. Stainless steel was one of them.

Chrominum and other precious metal shortages during the Korean war kept brightwork to a minimum. Not as bad as WW2 but still a factor.

Crap I was going to say that being WWII sure changed things in that regard but I didn't know in the Korean war the same happened, interesting.

I think it was more of a " be prepared" thing really rather than a actual need. I can't really remember any " shortages". But I was only a little guy then.

What type of car was the choice for General Pershing command car for his skirmishes in Texas and Mexico? This brand of car was also used in WW1, overseas. It was chosen for it's toughness first, comfort second.

Part Dos: What type of car was used by the enlisted men in the service at the same time?

I thought it over and I think I was wrong with my first answer. Pershing's cars weren't Fords they were Dodge's. The Military Channel did a program a couple of years back about Pershing and Pancho Villa and it was mentioned. Also Pershing used a Curtis JN-3 as a spotter. It was all a kind of " warm up" for WW1

Half right, the Dodge was used by the enlisted men.

The Navy was using Dodges in '63-67 when I was Duty Driver for my ship. I remember I was not happy about it either.

Welllll, I know where your going Dinger but It's not clear whether Pershing used his Packard In Mexico or whether he used the custom built Dodge Bros touring Car that was built for him. Both cars were built in 1915, both are on display. Pershing certainly used his Packard in the States and in Europe but after researching a little I'm finding the Dodge mentioned more often then the Packard in Mexico. Don't know.
