There's nothing there that couldn't be bolted on or copied. I'd value it as standard Command Car plus bits.

As Gordon said, nothing that couldn't be copied or bolted on. With-out impecable providence I would have to say no.

Its like when my father and his hunting friend shot a tigeress in Malaya back in the 1950's, the next day 5 sets of tigers testicles were sold in the market!!!

it also wouldn't be that hard to figure out with access to which vehicles were issued to him. Generals probably have a designation as a type of segment in the military? I have seen other do that on this forum with hood numbers.

Not sure how it worked in WWII but we (Army) today assign General Officer vehicles to their drivers.

They will have a distinctive bumper number with the "6" designation indicating a commander. The passenger side windshield will usually be marked with their call sign such as "Marne Six" "Eagle Six" " All American Six"

and normally have a greater complement of communications on board
