Title: Question on Cletrac nameplate
Post by: 14JA062 on August 15, 2010, 01:59:27 PM
Hi,
I am new to this forum, I have a Cletrac MG1 and maybe someone can answer my questions concerning the nameplate of my vehicle. See picture.
The serial number being 14JA062, what stands 14 for?
I guess "J" stands for Cleveland Tractor Co.and "A" for Army. Is that right?
What means A.S.C.REQ. ?
Does "44-3.AF" mean march 44, AF standing for what?

Thanks, Jean.

AF = Air Force

Given the relatively high serial number (14JA...) I'm guessing the 44 in the ASC Req. number is 1944, and the 3AF means the tractor was either requisitioned by, or delivered to, the 3rd Air Force.  My 1942 (3JA...) data plate is different, having a delivery date and an Ordnance Department contract number.  I haven't tried to check my later model data plate.
