The plan is to restore her to factory condition as per remlr picture
She was converted to a GS after the war in 1973

There's been a bit of discussion on your new purchase. Your vehicle is 174-434 (a Series 2A GS), and that is it's Army history and it's identity when sold from the Army in 1980.

112-166 (as sold from the Army), is still a workshop truck and is owned by another member.

Agreed my vehicle now has that arn. Though in saying that the vehicle in the pictures are of my truck. It wasn't until after the war the arn plate and possibly the ws tray were put on another chassis.
Alot of parts including the firewall, seatbox and guards retain the original bronze green paint.

I understand the ARN of both and how the system works.

But if this vehicle is built back to workshop status, with original chassis, does it not become a restoration of the original vehicle. It would be the vehicle in SVN, but not the vehicle that was sold after return from SVN.

In this instance there will be two 112-166

I'm no military expert, but my non-educated "opinion" that counts for nothing, would be yours has the SVN history, but also has the new ARN, not the ARN it had when it went to SVN.  It's ID was officially changed, but there is no way of taking away the service history of the vehicle.  The other vehicle just has panels that went to SVN.
cheers

Thanks Dennis
Rob is assisting with the restoration of the truck.
Chassis is in good condition. I have noticed though both front spring hangers have been repaired by the army.
