VIN: 81586332

and it seems to be correct.

Hola John,

Yes, it can be correct.

It would be very interesting to see the B.C..

If it is correct, your vehicle was ordered with the contract number: W-374-ORD-2840, W-398-QM-DA-521.

Under that contract 688 units were delivered in 1942 and 84 in 1943.

Your vehicle is from the end of November 1942?.

Regards,

Juan.

Hola Ulrich,

I think that the body plate is not correct, but I'm not sure..

WC-55, VIN 81 530310.

The two B.C. closest we have are:

81 529912, 14 may 42...body nº 4728

81 530904, 5 jun 42,,,body nº 6418.

Although in the WC-55 model there is a lot of confusion in the sequence of numbers.

However it would correspond a body tag 5000, for example. Although I do not rule out that it could be number 2621.

What strikes me is the 4290.

In all B.C. we have the model WC-55, the body model is 86. Therefore the body tag is 4286.

But I may be wrong and it corresponds to 4290, which means that the vehicle was delivered as: Bucket seat body.

Therefore I ask for help:

To the owners of model WC-55, what body tag does the vehicle have?

Regards,

Juan.
