Sorry you have not given any details of what you want look for information  attached on plates on the passenger side chassis rail in the cab. Look for the chassis number stamped on the passenger side  chassis rail below the cab floor it would help if we knew where in the world you come from

Apologies, any other info than the serial will be sufficient. The serial is 40387.

Many thanks, this is interesting. Are there any other numbers e.g. on the engine block etc., that should match together woth frame/chassis or so?

engine may have been changed  so not much help look for any metal plates in the places suggested if you find any post what you find that may help with any other avenues  of research

I have a copy of a pamphlet entitled "BEDFORD VEHICLES  and VAUXHALL CARS supplied to Government Contracts or M.O.W.T Release January 1944" giving OY 3-ton WD chassis for 1941 as OY-36101 to OY-51178 with engine numbers for that period as OY-61672 to OY-79005

Hi Nick the pamphlet I mention is available I've seen copies offered for sale at shows like W&P and Stoneleigh covering the period 1927/8 to 1949 I suspect the part you might be interested in is from 1940 the first entry mentioning MW's and last MW entry in 1945. What particular year are you interested in the information given is minimal

Thanks for answering my question i have been looking to try and find any  infomation regarding Bedford MW production with a view to trying to establish a more accurate method of  dating factory production i own a 1940 MWD chassis number 12249 which if my reserch is correct was built in July 1940 all my infomation is collected from diffrent sources but i have nothing from the factory to conferm this infomation i also have Bedford MWR chassis number 42436 and at present the closest to a manufacturing date would be 1942 i would like to find any accurate infomation which could narrow this down
