yea, sadly a fantasy model, books show only ford, Chevrolet , and Plymouth 4 doors issued... did they expect a general to wait while you tipped the seat forward?.... I don't think so !.....LOL
assuming you do have a Chevy or Plymouth 4 door, lets say a 1941 Plymouth special deluxe, how can you tell if it was ever a military staff car?

Lights, front and back were different, for a start

My 1946 Cadillac Series 62 still has its Service Number stencilled under the hood and on service records on drivers door frame.

I can't see a difference in lights other than on some models they added very small black-out lights and they painted all the chrome trim/bumpers in body color. Strictly looking at Plymouth P10's, 11's, etc.

yeah it seems like all the authentic ones have a large metal plate , usually on the glove-box door or dash, stamped with the military registration codes and such.

 

Safe to assume there's a lot of fakes out there?

They fitted military lights front and back on the line, so the civilian light fitting holes were left blank - not stamped out. It isn't the addition of the military lights that suggests genuine - it's the blanks where the civilian lights haven't been punched.
