Notes/Comments:

Date of delivery - either 15th or 16th of June 1945. Louisville KY plant, approximately 5500 GPW's constructed after this vehicle. Used by the US navy in around 1947 (land based) as a mobile power unit for starting jets on the airfield. It was painted yellow all over (common for airfield jeeps) and was fitted with a rev counter to keep track of the extra generator mounted under the hood.
