Some pages of the 1942 model parts list shown here. I did not realise the commonality between the brands was so large. Interesting to see the Model Codes for the 1942 models.

Some info on Plymouth body codes. See the footnote for numbers of Plymouths built with right hand drive in 1942.

I had a copy that service manual, it was a reprint by 'Scientific Publications' from memory they were a Sydney based publisher.

The DeSoto ute I salvaged, had the Aust. army nomenclature "SP11 12 cwt GS van" stenciled on the cowl . I paid $80 for the ute in 1981. The DeSoto had been used on a farm near Bendigo, the farmers name "Gouldian - Marong" was on the drivers door. While at a Bendigo swap I drove out to Marong and asked a chap on the roadside and showed him pics of the ute... yep he said he married the daughter and he said he had been in the ute many times in the late 1950s. He said they delivered cans of milk with the ute to the local dairy.

Chrysler builds for the needs of today

JAN 12, 1942 – Chrysler Corporation ~ Time Magazine

Not sure which model car is depicted here. Soon after this ad was published in Time Magazine, manufacturing resources for the car in front would be shifted towards the tank in the rear. By then, “the Needs of Today” was tanks, not luxury cars with huge chrome front ends.
