                                                                                Notes:

The first 275 airplanes listed were originally ordered and designated as
O-62's but by the time they were delivered the designation was changed to L-5. These airplanes had numerous small differences from the L-5's that followed.

The first prototype L-5 airplane, known as the Model 76, is not included in this list. It was not assigned a USAAF serial number and was retained by Stinson through April, 1944. At that time it is believed to have been modified to become the prototype L-5B ambulance model and was finally delivered to the USAAF as 42-99574   

A single experimental
XL-5F was converted from L-5B s/n 44-17103. It was used as the prototype for the 24-volt electrical system adopted for the L-5G. After WWII it was fitted and tested with an experimental very low noise "stealth" propeller and exhaust system developed by NACA / Langley.   

At least 21 of the 785 cancelled L-5G aircraft are known to have been built and sold directly to the civilian market after WWII. The military never took possession of these airplanes and they are not included in the production list above.
DEACTIVATED
Below are the military serial numbers assigned to all L-5's delivered between November 1942 and December 1945. These numbers have been compiled from official Army Air Forces sources and indicate the total wartime military requisitions of the L-5 Sentinel series. 

The first two digits of the USAAF serial numbers indicate the FISCAL YEAR in which the planes were requisitioned, not necessarily the year of manufacture. All but the first six planes in the 42-series were manufactured in 1943 or 1944. For the 44-series aircraft, 436 were manufactured from  August through December 1944. The rest were delivered in 1945.

Regardless of the service branch operating it, each aircraft was originally issued a USAAF serial number from within the first list below. The Navy, Marine Corp and  British lend-lease aircraft were all drawn from these ranks and re-numbered according to the conventions of the using arms as shown in the subsequent tables.
