I have chassis number 6855 it is a willys frame.

Unfortunatly I don't have any other info since I bought it already restored and it has repo tags.

Any idea what plant it came from or an appoximate hood number?

Posting or emailing to me a photo of the complete frame serial number stamping should go far in helping to answer your questions.

Hello,
I am new to this forum, and find subjects treated very interesting.
I am currently looking into GPW 7791. Can anybody help to properly define DOD of this early script Ford.
From a very unlisible copy of the data sheet I can hardly make out something suggesting March .... 1942.
Is there any reliable data source available to get more precision, particularly as these vehicles were produced at the same time in a couple of factories.

Thanks for any hints.

Hello,
got GPW1427 stamped on the willys frame. Ford tub (embossed scripts on the back) has no numbers stamped anywhere. No other numbers nor data plates are present. Does anybody has a clue which reg # may be this one?

Thanks,
Jim
