About the only markings you need is a white star on the doors. The thing is, the C600 was not used in the military. They are about the only organization on earth who didn't use them but the military had other vehicles to fill it's role. Most transport vehicles used during the period the kit represents were diesel also, usually using the Continental 468 multifuel motor that could run on various low grade fuels.

There will be no chrome on a tactical vehicle, and very little in the way of distinctive markings. The "FORD" & the logo would also be green. Everything would be the same color (body, frame, engine, driveshaft, interior)

As for the bumper numbers, the numbers on the passenger side front is the unit (on my M927 is XVIII ABN/43ADA), while the number on the drivers side front is the vehicle number (C-11 in my case, which stands for Battery C, Vehicle 11). These numbers are switched on the rear of the vehicle.

I think you have a good concept, and are off to a good start.
