Hello guys. 

My name is Daniel and im from germany.

I just bought a weasel that is not in an original condition and i would need some help cause im confused with the serial number and hull number.

My ord serial number on the manufacture tag is 3107.

The hull tag reads M-29-317 

I can send pictures next week cause it is in a garage further away.

Would be happy for any help.

That probably makes sense but @James Di Giovanni or @Jim Gilmore may have more.

The first 1000 or so were T-24s....the next 1000 were M29's but they still had T24 hull tags.  At some point they changed over to M29 hull tags and presumably started over at #1.....so you have an M29...presumably with the side flares for the 20 inch track.

Congrats -Weasels are awesome!

Hey thank you very much.

The production year is only stamped with 194. Is it a 1944 then?

They put a rollcage in it and wanted to use it in sweden to move wood.

they welded a lot of things wrong i guess.

the exhaust is on the wrong side the back is not right and the long welds on the side .

i dont know whats original or not.

i hope it makes sence that i want to put it in ww2 Kondition and i hope its worth it .

the engine is a volvo 

So i dont know if it will have value

If i write some words in a wrong way please tell me:-D20221113_120747.thumb.jpg.8038bda6b86703bacbc668152b985761.jpg20221113_105449.thumb.jpg.b7c7a7bdc1dc7b21befe3cd9b59812f1.jpg20221113_120747.thumb.jpg.8038bda6b86703bacbc668152b985761.jpg20221113_105444.thumb.jpg.afedaae03da69e44faa9c929a5ff880c.jpg

It has had a hard life - but nothing that can't be fixed.   I am biased but I do think it is worth preserving.  There have been a lot of sheet metal repairs, but if you can weld and fabricate, it is just work to restore it back to WW2 condition. 
 

Kindly post pictures of the hull tag and more pictures of the interior.

Also, you should start a new thread in this main forum documenting your restoration.  This community will help you find what you need to get this machine back in WW2 condition.

Cheers!
