SERIALNUMBER FORMULA     

By using the following formula you are able to calculate an approximately serialnumber for your Willys MB and Ford's GPW with a composite body. (I will update this page later with the GPW formula)

I will explain how I did create the formula for the Willys MB. By taking the total of composite bodies used by Willys (about 158400) and the total of composite bodies used by Ford (about 100000) and devide those numbers you get the number 1,584   (158400 /100000 = 1,584) The number 294000 is the serial of the first Willys with a composite number (approximately)

Willys MB with composite body: Serialnumber = (bodynumber/1,584) + 294000
