I have USN 134617 it was also with the Marine Corps Air Station North Carolina ( I believe Cherry point )
With a Hood number 3-964 in Yellow and a D near the side steps of the jeep
The USN are in white.
also found the original Blue Drab Numbers on the Hood 20360102
I am trying to trace the history of this jeep
Marine Corps to US Navy then was sold to a Fire Dept, Then to a farmer who used it as a Snow Plow Vehicle
Thank You

Let me clearly understand what your jeep is...

First an Army jeep with hood number 20360102. I'm assuming the numbers were blue drab?

USN 134617 is close to mine and is Navy for sure. The white number is a repaint.

How are you sure it was USMC?

Are there any odd features on your jeep? Frame and body numbers?

I have MB330076, I have removed layers of civilian paint revealing Navy Gray with black numbers 157119 under USN. Tried to add photos here but unfamiliar with how to.

Frame tag is oval.

Aloha..I recently picked a nice straight 1944 Willys. One of the previous owners partially stripped paint from the hood to reveal yellow paint with a black painted USN #. I dont believe the hood was on another jeep as I see some yellow under the present paint elsewhere on the body. The body # looks like 153438 Frame # 390933. Data plates are missing,so I plugged the #'s into the French jeep site and got an 11-44 DOD and registration # estimate of 20619937. My question is there a way to tell from the USN # a time frame the Navy may have used the jeep? Also what time frame for the yellow paint scheme?

Navy registration numbers were sometimes set up in blocks of numbers like my contract jeep. for others I don't know.

Does your jeep have property tag on the dash?

Your frame and body number are consistent with a Nov 1944 delivery date if your Jeep was delivered to the Army. I have the following in my database:
S/N 389559 DOD 11/x/1944 Body #149749
S/N 392078 DOD 11/10/1944

If it was delivered as a Navy Jeep the DOD would likely have been later. I have the following MZ-2 in my database:
S/N 391542 DOD 12/29/1944

The Registration # estimate that you got from the French site is too low. I have a registration # for only one Jeep that's at all close that suggests yours would have been 2065xxxx
S/N 399210 DOD 12/18/1944 Reg #20660936

The 20619937 estimate that you got would have been a close estimate for my July 1944 Jeep.

I recently bought a 65 CJ5, I was told it was a Naval Air Station Jeep and has the "US Department of the Navy" tag to back it up. The jeep was in pretty rough shape when I got it, the owner told me that he thought it had been sitting in a field since the 80's. I am in the process of restoring it but wanted to add it to the registry.

S/N 188366
REGISTRATION NO. USA 94-61170
FSN 20-2320-174-9088

Thanks,

Thanks Seth...that looks reasonable...I recently posted on craigslist looking for an MB engine (The one in my MB looks to be an M38 L134) A person apx 3 hours away posted they had an MB engine in an old generator...I asked for the # and if it was an MB..imagine my surprise that the gen engine # is only 188 away from my MB!

A most interesting list of Navy and USMC vehicle Registration Numbers. I am intrigued with Ford GPA Amphibian Jeep and see four (4) listed, two Navy, two USMC. I also note the list was last revised December 25, 2016.

Would more GPA's have come to light with these Services and are pics available?

I must dig through records I may have to see total numbers of GPA's to each of the Services.
