The Hotchkiss chassis
number seems odd (but has been checked by removing the
paint) and indicates
that the jeep actually rolled off the production line in
1958 but the jeep was not issued with an army number until 1962. While
rubbing down the paint the name "SARAGOSSE"
was found below the windscreen. This name of a french
battle indicates that the jeep served with a cavalry regiment(RC)
