Hi, I found an interesting photo where is mounted bracket for fuel can in place where schould be rear bumper. I am sure it is VEP because there are missing hook rings

Solid rims, low windshield, this has to be an early slat.

Check out the side, the step, lack of sump, and the top bows. I think we're looking at an MA! Pretty cool! Look really close and you can see the headlight outside of the grill too.

There are some photos out there of early GPW's with field made carriers on the back, if I can find some I'll post them here. You can tell this can is galvanized and hasn't been painted. I wonder where this was taken?
