1941 slat grill found

Post by ANDY » Tue Sep 11, 2018 5:31 pm

Just brought home this December 1941 the slat grill in as found condition. has an early GPW engine but still retains all of its data plates and frame number.
Overall pretty good condition little bit of rust on the front floors but overall pretty nice original bumper, grill ,fenders ,black out light ,axle shafts things like that..
Very nice touch was inside one of the original zippered cushions I discovered some documents as pictured the original MWO stamped with the original hood number of that jeep.
Thinking about restoring or maybe letting it go to a new home...

Nice find! There's still some out there!

What's the serial number of the early GPW engine?

Kudos to the people who took "Do Not Remove From Vehicle" seriously for the past several decades!
