That is interesting, Bob.

MB-380918 belongs to Hiki du Plassis out of South Africa and has this MZ-2 data plate on it.

My file on this jeep has 5 photos... several showing what appears to be a T90 transmission. No photos of the engine or the engine number.

I have tried to reestablish contact with him without any positive result.

Second post on here, but Active Duty Navy LT here getting into the love of restoration. Currently in the process of buying two GPWs (one body and frame without engine, other frame with CJ 134 motor and T-90 transmission) out of Texas. Could hope and pray to get a serial number that matches to a Navy Jeep but I know that is wishing for a needle in a hay stack stateside. I just wanted to say hello and Go Navy! Can't wait to dive into some more of the forums and see some of your all's Navy and Marine jeeps. If you live near Jacksonville FL let me know, I can get you a tour on my ship when we make it back around from the ship yard as I will be the Commissioning Chief Engineer on the future USS WICHITA (LCS 13).

I listed my body number incorrectly under the MZ1 section. It’s actually 60293. Sorry, couldn’t see it very well.
