Well, if we believe that these data plates are from one of the 1945 trailer rebuild programs, then they just created their close-enough data plate, put the date it was rebuilt as the "DOD" and perhaps assigned it the "1088" or whatever that number is in the Serial Number line as the 1088th rebuilt trailer, then you could conceivably keep it that way or by using the ACM number, discover the estimated REAL serial number and DOD and have Robert de Ruyter stamp you out one so marked.

By the way, Bantam started their Serial Number scheme with "101". Willys started their MBT Serial Numbers with "1001".

I would still be interested in the ACM number when you get it cleaned up.

Thanks!

I have the residue of another WW2 era 1/4 ton trailer consisting of a rolling frame/draw bars only. Eight leaf springs with a welded axle tube but a lot of BC marked bolts. It has an ACM number you can see plainly with out removing the bracket. Will post it for you tomorrow.

If you can send me all the answers to the "How To ID..." at the top of the 1/4 Ton Trailer Forum, I will work up a decent estimate of the Data Plate info and a USA Number for you. You can email it to me. A pic of the ACM number for my files would be great. Name/City/State for my files as well. please.

It is a 1944 trailer.

Click on the little bubble next to the CONTACT over to the right under my name, that will give you my email address.
