Tons of posts on this topic, lots of mine has this and that. However is there any proof a slat radiator was in any gpw below the 300 serial number?

Just out of curiosity, why did you place SN 300 or below as the metric?

Just want to know what was used at the very beginning, as I have gpw 260. So did ford have the gpw radiator in production from day 1?

What’s the DoD of GPW 260? The very, very early GPW radiator was slightly different from the standard GPW radiator...but it was not the very early MB radiator. This is why I am asking for the DoD of GPW 260.
