Sure would like to see a good set of photos of that one Geoff...
The ACM # 61871 and Serial Number fit neatly into my data base giving it an estimated DOD or 8/11/43 or 8/12/43.
However, pics of the REAR panel and the rear of the FRAME would be interesting as at this point I believe Bantam always had a rear frame crossmember and that Willys only left that feature out for a VERY short number of G529s.

Can we get some pics of that trailer?
Rear panel
Tail light brackets (welded or bolted on)
The data plate & ACM number?

Thanks!
Chuck Lutz
