Hood numbers for my 42 GPW

Post by rcskier » Fri Sep 16, 2016 1:17 pm

My '42 GPW frame and glove box # 20636 Has a strange set of hood numbers placed there by my father. ( he purchased it in "49 and it has been in the family ever since. It will go to my son when I can no longer drive it!) I know the hood was sanded down to bare metal years ago so there is no way that I can find hood numbers there, and the original script rear panel was damaged in a rear end collision before he purchased the jeep and was removed. So, I need to find out what the hood numbers might possibly be for this jeep as well as hopefully getting some kind of idea where it was built. Would put pics up but can't seem to do so.

Hi rcskier,

From my GPW studies and databases, your GPW 20636 should have come from the Dallas, Tx. assembly plant. The original hood number looks to have been in the range of 20110584 to 20110729.

I hope this is of some help and thanks for the GoFundMe contribution !!!!!

Thanks for the help. I will now pick a number in the middle of both and order stencils! Thanks again.
