Any History Please.
Thankyou

Update.
I have just had the following message from Tom Wolboldt. -

From my GPW studies and databases, Your GPW 3809 should have come from the Chester, Pa. assembly plant. The most likely DoD was March 6, '42. The original hood number most likely was in the range of 2067650 thru 2067725 ( but not 2067682, 2067692, or 2067721 ).

Thankyou Tom

Not sure if it is a VEP but it is certainly an EP GPW.

GPW59042
DoD: 27 August 1942
I guess no script, no jerry can re-enforcement and no trailer socket

Can anyone help me with any information on a stamped a chassis number GPW 14312 *

The body is an April 1944 and the bonnet is an early Willis so I don't think any hood number under all the paint would be relevant.

HK G36, I have GPW 14914 and will be glad to send you a photo of it's frame number. 14914 was delivered on April 10, 1942. Also in my home town there is the hulk of 14082 which was delivered on April 8, 1942 (I've tried to buy it for 6 years with no luck). I'm pretty sure 14312 was built in the same time frame. Contact me off the board at Industele@aol.com and I'll be glad to share what little information I have. Tom Campbell - Birmingham, AL

Data plate from GPW 55

GPW #55 was delivered 1 day prior to my GPW #2647 (2-26-42). This goes to show how GPW serial numbers have such a wide spread early on.

Probably not a VEP, yet close, engine and Data plate match the title numbers. Frame is way too rusted.
