GPW hood numbers

Post by Tom Wolboldt » Wed Mar 07, 2007 4:57 pm

Hi Rick,

The hood number estimator ( http://www.classicmilitaryautomotive.co ... mator.html ) is very close to what I come up with for GPW 2031. It says 2056808 and I come up with 2056795 plus or minus 45 numbers.

GPW 7941 is a different story. The estimator says 2062718 and I come up with a 2063878 plus or minus 180 numbers. In other words the estimator is off by 900 to 1350 numbers. It did hit the assemble plant correct with a Richmond, Ca. number. The only problem is the number it gives would have been used before the motor for GPW 7941 would have even been assembled back at the Rogue plant in Michigan.

There are anywhere from 9 to 12 random variables that I have identified and use to come up with a close GPW hood number. As far as I know the estimator mostly just uses a plain one step act of addition to come up with a GPW hood number.

I am always looking for test numbers where someone gives me all of their data except their known hood number and I give them a number back to see how close it is. I did this for a guy in Europe early last fall and I was off by 13 numbers.

GPW 11836

Post by Tom Wolboldt » Thu Mar 08, 2007 2:41 pm

Hi Mike,

Thanks for the data!

From my GPW database and studies I believe GPW 11836 should have come from the Louisville, Ky. assembly plant.

The hood numbers you are missing after 2060 should be between 000 and 069. Have you checked the back panel and both sides of the hood for the missing numbers? The suppression " S " will be on the side of the cowl about inline with the hood numbers.

Your hood number was stamped on the frame? Lucky you! I've seen this on half-tracks before but not often on jeeps, if ever.
Probably done to help get it back if the Marines stole it.
My 44 GPW had the last four digits of the reg number stamped into one of the body bolt washers.
Wouldn't it have been great if they had stamped the reg numbers on all of them?

GPW 2956 on Willys frame. The data plate shows weight of 2265 and the small box is listed as "1/4-T". DOD is 3-10-42. I recovered the original hood number in white paint and continued to sand down and found the same number in blue drab. I also removed the jerry can support plate and found three of the middle serial numbers clearly and the bottom of the USA. My original serial number is 2058657. Jeep was bought from Army surplus in Conyers, GA. in 1946 by a WWII GI who is still living. Hope to take him for a ride in it when I get it rebuilt.

Another friend of mine Bobby Nowland has GPW 885. It won second place at Mobile in the restored class. You can contact his son Rod on the Gee for more information on 885.

Hi Kent,

Depending on where GPW 15530 - 4/13/42 was assembled it could also be a VEP.

GPW 885 was produced on 2/26/42. When we "discovered" it in the farmer's briar patch it had the original "F" marked pancake air filter.

Dad and I spent 4 years restoring it.
