Help with M151A2 serial number

Post by eagleredleg64 » Sun Aug 18, 2019 3:01 pm

I purchased a M151A2 without a dataplate but it has the following USA number still on it’s windshield. The plate by the transmission is not there either. Wondering if anyone has a record of USA numbers assigned to the M151A2s? Thanks!

Did you check under the fuel lines in the driver's compartment on the side of the transmission tunnel? Just about where your right calf would be when you are driving.
The military put a data plate there with the vehicle serial number. It is printed and somewhat fragile - if it has been painted over it might be hard to recover - it is not stamped.
Good luck with this!

Hello eagle.... you have the US Army registration number right there. What exactly do you need?

M151's do not have true serial numbers. what the military issues is it, that is the only serial number it will ever get.
1964 M151A1
1984 M1008
1967 M416
04/1952 M100
12/1952 M100- Departed
