1942 MB Montrose, CA $20,000

UPDATE: What I thought was a custom parking brake on the dash is actually a gun mount (Thanks Andy).

The serial number is listed as #GPA8424, which is strange given it does not look like a GPA nor a GPW. However, the dash plate indicates the serial number is 198360, which puts it as a very late 1942 MB.
