I am starting on a restoration of #115951 (original frame tag), body # 20053.
By my research looks like DOD should be 2-2-42?
Hood # should be in the range of 2047526?
When does the early round muffler end?
Does anyone have a picture of the date stamp location on the axle housing?
I am thinking of painting this Jeep in Air Force colors if that would be a possible scenario?
Thanks David Clarke

3 days before mine, which is 119696, is yours Canadian contract ? There were 1500 produced for CDLV 242, so yours might be one. The guy i bought mine off traced a lost of history on this contract, and reckoned there were 37 left in the world, food for thought maybe ?

Hi Ronald,

Thanks for listing your MB's data ! What motor does it have ?

Due to how it appears MBs received their serial numbers your MB could just as well have had a DoD of Jan, 2, '42 and a hood number in the high 2039xxx.

I recently purchased a Jan '42 MB. Serial number on the frame tag appears to be 111414 and the body # is 15203. Best guess on the DoD is 1-13-42.Any close estimation on the registration number would be appreciated.
