    Default Registration number locations

    Where else should I look if my hood has no numbers (painted as a brush truck)?

    The hood and the tailgate are the two most common places that the registration numbers where placed. If your truck survived in the Army long enough that it made it to the subdued and camo era's then sometimes people will find it painted on inside door panels or under the hood and I know one guy who found it on the inside of the glovebox door.

    Ok, so I am looking for a painted on number, not something stamped, correct?

    Not stamped. It would have been on the hood, each side and on the lower portion of the tailgate. Curiously, in the photos of my truck in 1970, Neu Ulm Germany, the unit markings were in white whilst the truck markings are in satin black in keeping with the "new" European subdued markings. These are actual vintage photographs.

    Yes the registration numbers are either painted or decaled onto the vehicles. This number was assigned to the vehicle at the time of acceptance into the military and served as the military's "serial number" for the vehicle. The military did not go by the VIN number when it was in service, they used the registration number to keep track of it.

    Wow, that's a unique one! That is an earlier vin# and lower hood registration number but delivered in early 68' I wonder if it had some problems on the assembly line and had to be re-sent through after it had a vin and registration number assigned to it. That vin should have came out in the batch around 9/67' which would have been a little ahead of my 10/67' M725 which is vin 11515 and registration number of 3F 2473.
