Willys MB 195621

I bought this jeep from a brazilian army auction in 1989 Its frame and body was still in good shape. The engine seems to be original(no ribs in the head cover) and its number is PC144. The 3 data plates in the glove box are new and fitted during the general overhaul done by the army In the new data plate the serial number is PQC 144 and the delivery data is 10 MAY 1967. The body number 97.378 is stamped and clear visible but the frame ID plate is missing.The 2 holes with one rivet are still there. After a complete restoration of the body, i bougth many parts,acessories and tools in USA, Canada and France. This litle jewel seems now quite original. The delivery data and frame number are estimated. One infantry division ( ~25.000 mens) of the brazilian army fought in Italy during the WWII and they were equiped with ~600 jeeps. Is my jeep one of of the survivors? Who knows???
