Relatively new to the forum. Posted questions about my Ben Hur here and got lots of real good help. Thank you to all that replied. Now I have questions about hood numbers for my WC-56. Build Card shows the old girl was built on 12 Feb 1944, VIN 81689683. Looking for estimate on hood registration number, or at least a range for hood number. I have heard there are people out there who have extrapolated numbers based on known real examples. However, I can't seem to locate them. Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Dave.

Very good Dave.

Given the wc-57 and wc-56 that were delivered in 1944 and since your vehicle is from mid-February, I believe that the military registration number is 20463428 (hood number), with a tolerance of +/- 500.

Your wc-56 is the Contract Number, W-374-ORD-6322, Prod. Order Number, T-8351, that in 1944 delivered 3260 units of the WC-56 model, between January and April 1944 (end of production).

This is an opinion of mine, which may be wrong. We don't have enough data to say exactly the hood number.

B.R., Juan.
