Note the different treads on the clutch and brake pedals. The coarse tread on the brake pedal is later. The Rubber Gas Pedal is early CCKW thru 1942. The "pink" knob on the Cowl Vent control is NOS from 40's Civilian Chevrolet/GMC stock. Instrunents are all AC. The OEM H-700 keyed ignition switch helps keep the curious from starting the Jimmy.
Jimmy was the popular nick name used by WWII Veterans who drove these, "Deuce and a Half" nickname is late 50's Viet Nam reference to the 2-1/2 Ton 6X6. The Closed Cab CCKW and the Chevy 4X4 will toss you around when driving off road if you weigh under 175 pounds, It was the same for all GMC's with the 1574/1608 Cabs. The kids enjoy it tho. The Closed Cab CCKW and 4X4 Chevrolet have no tolerance for "Beer Bellies". If you can "talk Jeep", you can learn to talk CCKW, they both hold a great place in MV history :wink: :wink:
