I can do that, Jeff.

I have often wondered if there were any MZ-1 with a number higher than mine and maybe that radar jeep is one.

will post them!

Mark,

I send the first two pictures to your AOL address. Let me know if you get them and I'll forward the rest.

BTW, I'll also forward a photo on a USMC ambulance jeep I found but the numbers have been painted over so they're difficult to read. It was taken in D.C. in 1946.

Maybe this last one is USMC 79376? Anyone with a better idea?

Very nice photos, thanks for sharing and posting. It looks like the Deep Water Jeep has different radio antenna mast brackets in the two photos. In the driver side view, the antenna mast bracket appears to be mounted to the center of the spare tire carrier, whereas in the right rear view it is clearly mounted atop an extension that might be attached to the fuel can strap support bracket on the rear panel. It's also satisfying to have the photo date and location data. Wonderful photos. :)
Happy Jeep Trails,

You're welcome. I left all the data with the pictures so you had the source information.

The vendors that support the NARA charge a lot to reproduce photos. I find that taking a picture of the picture works out just as good in most cases.

I posted the four photos above using a relatively high resolution so the registration numbers on the vehicles can be read. It seems that the photos are wider than the forum so the right side is cut off. If you can't see the right side then save the photos and open them with a viewer to see the complete photo with description.
