    International MK 3 chassis number

    I have a friend who needs to find the chassis number on a MK3 ex Aust army International.
    He is trying for historic rego and we need to check the chassis no to see if it matches the paper work supplied with the vehicle.
    My friend has checked the front RHD chassis rail for markings and couldn't see any ?????
    where would the chassis number be stamped.
    Regards
    Ron

    Front left chassis rail I thought.

    It should also be stamped on the data plate at the front. Lift the bonet and look at the top of the radiator.
    I'll see if I can find some pictures.

    We need to sight the chassis number on the chassis and take a photo of it to keep the club register happy as he gets lots of people giving him casting or part numbers instead of the true chassis number and to check the papers with the truck and spec plates all tally up.

    Mick we are trying to find a jerrycan holder rack for the RHS near the brakemaster cylinder and a original RVB horn for a MK3.
    This new owner of the truck is very lucky as it is very original and not mucked around with.
    It was sold though frontline machinery about a year ago and believed to have come from the SME museum Moorebank

    I know what you mean.
    One of my 101s is registered with a casting number as the engine number. I tried to get it changed with the registration department. They refused to acknowledge their error and accused me of changing the engine. It all got too hard so I walked away.

    And, my brown Mercedes, they changed to black on the rego info. So I just shut up about it.

    I'll confirm the chassis stamping location tomorrow.

    Shouldn't be hard to make one. It's basically flat strap and angle.DSC_0873.jpg
    Maybe Diana or Cookey would know where one is.

    My mate has been intensively looking for that Chassis number on the LHS chassis rail near the muffler.
    In the same spot as the above photo he has found the markings below.

    I thought it was not the chassis number , but now think it could be.
    the location is correct.
    the plate with chassis number is missing near the radiator.
    The truck is a MK3, but I am now thinking it is a very early one.
    It has a oil bath air filter and a Lucas generator fitted.
    Would 2500 be the chassis number?????????
    one other interesting thing about this MK3 is the mod plate is still intact and it is completely stamped out and the truck has MK4 nose and mud guards fitted , but still has the earlier pendant brake pedal , engine cover etc.
    I first thought ......ADE 4x4 and the 2500 was capacity in KG.......now thinking it may be very early low digit chassis number??????????
    Any ideas???????????????

    Mine is 945. That is ADE4X4945. It is a '64 model.
    The one you posted up, ADE4x42500, is quite late. Possibly a Mk4? It might even have been a Vietnam veteran rebuilt with a new chassis when it returned.

    A quick look on the ARN page:
    174-150 1968 - Mk.4 6069C Truck, Cargo, 2 1/2 Ton, GS, With Winch 6.282.09529 2501

    It's not listed but chassis 2501 is a 1968 Mk4. I suspect the one your mate has is the same or a rechassied Mk3.
