Kevin,

We have acquired another halftrack. White M2A1 (was M2) with winch. Serial number 233812 so I guess it's a late 41 or early 42? Rebuilt into an M2A1 5/12/1945 at Ft Crook. Ord number 4573 and hood number 4014771. Located in West Texas

M3 Diamond T Serial #M34983 Hood #4028719 Ord#10734 The hood number was stamped in top of front bumper during rebuild into M16A1. I used the hood number to derive the frame serial number and ordnance number. Hoping to find the serial number and confirm.

I just bought an M2 converted to M2A1 serial # 231697 and Ord. # 2428. It has an additional brass plate that reads: "2nd Service Command New York City 30 October 1944 " The track is unrestored and is missing the rear armor.
