Thanks Tom
We hosted 2 AFS students from Michigan (Name of town/City eludes me).
They gave us a Key Ring from the State of Michigan which I have been using.
This was prior to purchasing and restoring this jeep. Great coincidence

Tom,
On the brass dataplate are no numbers stamped. On the chassis I found the number chass. 23127 and after looking around I found out that production must be in April or May 1942
I can send a photo of the dataplate. Image

This may be to your Data plates not being origanal. The Nomenclature plate, shouldn't have the Ford logo at the top and the line that states Maintaining Vehicle should read Quartermaster Corps, not Ordnance Department. The change occurred around November 1942.

Hello Gavin,

First the assembly plant of the GPW is needed before a hood number can be estimated with any degree of correctness. Can you post or email to me a clear photo of the serial number data plate ?

Ford GPW Serial number 10423 DoD 3-8-42 or 3-30-42. It looks like the 8 might be a 3 and 0 stamped over each other. I was told this was from the Dallas Plant. Estimated hood registration number would be 2065200. Below is a picture of the data plate and the frame stamping. I also had a current title for the vehicle. I can try to get a better picture if needed of the data plate.

Hello Gavin,

From my GPW studies and databases, I believe the hood number of GPW 20957 should fall within the 20104584 to 20104692 range.

Tom Wolboldt wrote:GPW 2647 should have come from the Dearborn, Mi. assembly plant. Odds things were happening with the hood numbers on the first GPW contract at Dearborn. So for right now all I can give is a range of 2055425 through 2055525.

Hi Michael,
Hood number 2056143, I believe, should be with-in about 75 numbers plus or minus.
Hello Tom, I was wondering if you might have been able to "guess" a more accurate registration number? Thanks in advance!
