    Default GPW

    I picked up this GPW and found numbers on the hood. I think I found 10, not sure about some of them but was wondering how many they put on. The picture of my Grandfather's has 8.

    They didn't put any so you should immediately put it on a truck and send it to me!...


    Best way to research is just look at history books/time life wwll. Look at Jeep's in combat and count numbers. Or visit G503 and ask.
    I'd think it depends on year, branch of service, unit, theatre, etc.

    JD has a point. I believe it depends on some factors, like was it an Army used one, Air force (Army Air Corps), Marines, etc. The years it was used, where it may have been used (which continent/country), etc.
    i love my country , but scared to death of its government!

    Back in the Jeep life! no more small cars here!
