Think POSITIVE shortround. This is a GREAT passion! Not everyone can say they are preserving history. Welcome aboard!

Hope I was not perceived as being negative. I would lose my mind if I did not have a restoration project going of some kind. Love preserving history. Just have a joking side. :D P.S. Your GPW is only 197 before mine.

I only wish I could positively confirm the date of delivery! Do you have your actual hood number? Is your DOD actual or estimated? Mine is only estimated by Tom W., way back; but he did say it was from Dallas, and it had some bumperette markings with III on one bumperette.
Thanks.
