Ford GPW 192374

This is a 1944 Ford GPW. The serial no suggests a dod of early May. It was supplied to the British army under contract 2275. The REME dash plate gives the post war registration of 93 YH 19 which I was able to trace to the British wartime hood number M5845301. After its REME rebuild it was "sold of allies". When I bought it, it had Norwegian plates on the gearbox and engine. So I'm guessing that it had been sold to the Norwegian Goverment. I bought it in 1991 from a local garage who had imported four jeeps from norway. It now carries the makings of the 2nd Battalion of the East Yorkshire Regiment.
