An exceptional barn find in India has surfaced on the G503 Facebook page. The announcement includes some shots of the partially legible data plate and USA number. I am posting them here in the hope that someone might decipher them, as their exact and complete reading seems to elude us on Facebook.

Tom,

Here are shots of my 43 GPW data tags:

DOD: 04-14-43
Serial #: 108175

Image

Image

I don't have a shot of the frame stamp, as it was heavily pitted and i was only able to make out a portion of the 1, 8, and 175. I do know the body and fame were the same numbers, though. As for the engine, it is not original...it's a 46 CJ block with a GPW head.

Do you happen to know the USA serial number for this GPW, as well as the location where it was built?

Thanks!
Sean
