Nice VAIW,, that is not the serial tag that would have been on the dash below the amp gauge.. the 1000 lb cast rear fenders were not just a Military thing these were used at many air ports train stations and factories the stock number may mean a few things,, but my guess is Case was the first owner and used at a plant possibly or if a Military sold unit that would have been a spec # for Case to build it by how they wanted it built as well as the military to know what parts list to look for

I am not familiar with this model, but drove a lot of baggage tugs 1969-75 with North Central Airlines. Newer ones were made by a company called TUG but we had a lot of the older ones Army surplus I am guessing. They all had cast iron rear fenders about 2" think in order to be able to pull 4 carts with about 200 bags in them. On all of those, fenders and running boards were all cast together.
