I have a 1942 Ford ‘Script’ GPW with a chassis number 27773, which perhaps would have come from the Chester, PA assembly plant of Ford and the Date of Delivery would have been in mid-May, 1942.
It was perhaps used in the British Indian Army during WW2 , most probably in the Burma theater of war and subsequently inducted in the Indian Army after 1947. Must have been auctioned of at a later date after service, and came into civilian use. The GPW was acquired by me almost 20 years ago and has been with me ever since.
