For your info.

Serial 108429
Serial too high to match bonnet number. Should be W-2039xxx range.

USA W- 2032670
Expect chassis serial number to be in the MB 101xxx range.

RAAF ( Royal Australian Air Force ) and number 212620
RAAF number is valid. But chassis allocated to this bonnet was reportedly a
Ford GPW with a late 43 early 44 chassis.

Comment: Late 44 delivery Aussie jeeps of ex US origins were made up of
various parts. It is possible that this jeep is old body parts on later
chassis & running gear. Especially if sourced ex Queensland.
