Where should this be mounted?

I found this metal registration / info plate in my '86 D90. Does anyone know where (or even if) this plate would have originally been mounted / displayed?

That's the military information plate which fits on the end of the seat box on the drivers side of Ex MOD vehicles (ie on the end part of the seat box which faces the door), about centrally placed. Usually pop riveted in place.

No problem, assuming your seat box is original you should be able to look there and see the original mounting holes. that plate looks nice and shiny though, I wonder if its a replacement, in which case you may already have one on there. If there is one already there then check on top of the brake cylinder housing under the hood (between the brake vacuum and the bulkhead, there should be a plate on top of there too. I'm down in TX at the moment away from my truck so I cant check but I think they are the same.

Wow... did all ex-MoD trucks have NSNs? That's a US Military thing.

Well, went upstairs where all the supply/logistics folks are, and had them punch in the NSN. I didn't tell them what it was, but they all got excited because I guess the "99" means United Kingdom, and that's a common question on the Navy LS advancement tests.

In the end, they could tell it came from the UK, it was a "TRUCK, UTILITY", but that was about it. The stock number has been superseded by something else.

61-kf-77 as shown on the plate is as you know the UK MOD number plate assigned to the vehicle

Wow.... small world, I used to be in the RWY (Royal Wiltshire Yeomanry) TA... and I remember seeing that 90 out and about one some excercises. It stood out because we had mainly 110's; 90's were fairly uncommon.

RWY and RWxY aren'y far from each other, and all under the umbrella of the RY

Ha! Before I was exported to the US and had to leave the TA in 1985 all we had were 109's
