Note the natural metal finish on the windshield center strip that appeared on early closed cab trucks.
According to the Master Parts Lists, it is permissible. Anyone notice the layout of the 1st Series 1574 Windshield Wipers, they are not the same as on the 2nd Series 1608 Closed Cabs. The "Rest" position of the arms is different.

It pays to listen to DURABLE JONES.

The 1st Series CCKW/CCKWX have a 1574 Cab with Civilian Instrument Panel. I chose to alter the dash to the later Round Gauges as the correct parts were too scarce.
The 1574 Cab was also installed on Civilian GMC Trucks, the Civilian 1574 Cab was different than the CCKWX/CCKW version in many details.
It's a good idea to mount the Pioneer Bracket on the drivers side, it is easy to scuff the tools when backing up in subdued light.
I finally installed all brass data plates, not quite OEM but they do match.
This truck uses Ethanol Free Gasoline only. It is a totally different truck. It feels its Wheaties now.

The GI Issue CCKW heater comes in handy during cold Veteran's Day parades and ceremonies.
