Trying to find out the original shipping destination for a truck. Rather than it city it shows SBN. The owner says it was originally a military vehicle.

Any ideas??

Thanks for any info.

Get a copy of the Production Order from the SNM. It will confirm whether or not the truck was a Government ordered vehicle. If it is it will include the Contract Number. Truck Production Orders generally don't have much info as far as where it was being shipped to. There is a box marked "Shipped Via" but that is usually routing instructions. I don't remember if the SNM has copies of the Shippers for trucks. You may want to check with them. The Shippers for pass cars include the dealer info.

That SBN may be just a storage yard in South Bend for in-stock, unsold vehicles.
