New to the World of Military Vehicles

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

My name is Martin and i am new to the world of Military Vehicles. I live in East Kent and have recently bought a 1944 Ford GPW Jeep in need of some restoration.

I have identified the Chassis No as 200959 and need some help in finding out some more details about this jeep. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think the following website will be more helpful than G503 in finding a British census number for your jeep;

I have had a look at this site, as I am also interested in a British census number. But I am at a loss to find any relevant info. Can you please advise where to find it on this site?

If you go through the menu on that site you will find a Contact page, here is the link in case you missed it

Richard,

The Chilwell lists that I am searching for, are they available to buy anywhere. If so I will purchase

them in order to continue my research.

The Chilwell lists only show the groups of census numbers for each contract of vehicles. No reference to Chassis numbers. The website I linked to you will be of more help as they have records of Key Cards for jeeps and can cross reference to chassis numbers.
