I just purchased M422 with frame number 403. No hood number but would like to have the correct number if possible to interpolate the proper hood numbering sequence to this frame number.
Thank you.

Bruce, look on the right side of the rear bumper. That is where I found mine. Estimating the correct number isn't possible on these as the numbers were not applied in any traceable sequence.

I have a correction for my M422a1 serial number. I originally stated it as 2596, as per the dash dataplate (that has no other numbers stamped in it), but after reading in an article some where that the number is stamped on the top right corner of the drivers side firewall,
I now know the number to be 2066.
The retiring airmen that sold it to me said he brought it back from the Philippines, paid $3 and a lot of red tape to get it titled!

That is not the serial number. That is the boby number and has no correlation to the serial number. The data plate number is your serial number and can be checked against the frame number. They should be the same. The frame number is located on top of the frame at the front left (driver side) shock. The engine number is different also.

The body number is like that compared with the Willys MB. They had a frame number that should be the same as the data plate number but the tub and engine numbers are different.

I hope this helps. :)

Hi all, new to the forum and new owner of an M422A1. It's ID plate number is 3188, with hood/bumper number 309908.

I've got a few questions if I may. Id like to know what year my mite was produced in, but the ID plate is weathered to the point that I can only make out the serial number. Is there a way to do so while I wait for the title to arrive?

Second, are there any sites that you'd recommend for purchasing parts? It's in pretty rough shape, so I've got a lot of work ahead of me.

Thanks much and best wishes.
