Restoring GP #15116

Post by nwarcade » Thu Jun 25, 2020 6:51 pm

Hi all,
I'm in the process of restoring GP #15116. The data plates are missing and I'm getting ready to order a repro set. Would it be safe assuming the DOD is 9/24/41?
Thanks all

Hi nwarcade,
Congratulations on owning GP15116! I own GP15581and did quite a bit of research into the possible date of delivery and found it most likely to be Oct 7, 1941. I have told Dave who does a great job with the GP list but it still hasn't been updated and still reads 11/8/41 which I believe is too late. So please refer to GP15581 as having a DOD of 10/7/41. Please also keep us up to date with your progress.

Olav

Hi Olav,
Thank you for the updated DOD of your GP. To add another example I'm also restoring #14871. I just cleaned up the data plate and it has a DOD of 9-22-41. Looking at Dave's list I'm thinking my proposed date is right on the money.
Thanks again,
Jay

Hey Olav,
On my list it shows GP 15581 with a dod of 11/13/41. I dont know if this is real or not. It certainly is quite late. There are two others with a dod of 11/3/41. Fwiw.
Brian
