MB 369488

Post by Michael O. » Fri Dec 22, 2017 12:25 pm

This was the second MB I brought home this year. The tub is in really good condition and shouldn’t take too much to properly restore it. The transmission is date stamped J1 44D and the bell housing has a casting date of 9-6. I suspect these could be original to this vehicle? The glove box plates are missing but I estimate her DoD to be 9-11-44....any thoughts? I don’t know the transmission or transfer case casting dates as the running gear is still installed. The transfer case does have the earlier external parking brake....so I’m hopeful.

Here’s a few photos of this MB. Overall, it’s in really nice condition, except for the fuel tank well. Missing some bits and pieces but I saved it from being parted out further. The two other MB’s the previous owner also had weren’t in as nice condition....they were shipped to a buyer in Germany. This one would have gone also if I didn’t buy it, so I’m glad I did. Data tags are missing, unfortunitely. I’ll be searching for a very late August ‘44 or very early Sept ‘44 cast MB block (around MB 467XXX) for this also.

Yes it is Farrell, thankfully....another reason why I couldn't pass it up. She she be a relatively easier restoration once I start it.
