Hi Tom

Been looking at the data I have.

For your MWR , chassis number 61420

Contract S3053, best estimate of original Z number is Z5253868

ContractS3053 was for 2000 vehicles,  Z number range Z5252268 to Z5254267, which makes yours the 1600th vehicle in this contract. Which make your delivery date early July 1944. By the way the original cost was £320 16shillings and 2 pence, the conversion from a GS to an MWR cost £56

Did this have a re-build plate ?, If so what was it's post war reg ?

Cheers

Richard

Hi Tom

Looking good, have you managed to find a 300W BSA charger to fit in the generator box ?

Also a photo of the plate that was attached to the chassis under the chassis serial number would be good

Also thanks for ongoing help with my MWC restoration

See you in Normandy 2019 ?

Cheers

Richard
