I added
White M2A1 was M2 reblt by B&M Ser. 233273, Ord 3984, using the key number the hood number would be 4014182
White M2 no data plate frame 233396
IHC M9A1-1187
Robbert:
I have very little info on IHC Half-Tracs. The other M9A1s I have listed all have a ORD that is 500 less than the frame or Serial number. That would seem to indicate your Ord number should be 687.
