Willys MB 122397

I found this slat-grill Willys jeep by accident; it was in a contractor's back lot, used for sidewalk plowing years ago. The engine still runs and tranny needs a rebuild. Rusty but all the little doodads still attached. Home made "cabin" outfitted with 6-volt heater and fans. 3 combat rims with truck along with original pintle and spare tire mount. I left it in the shape I found it while I finish my second M43 and move some other trucks around. I need to learn a lot about this truck but reluctant to remove any of the garish mods until I know what's underneath. My other trucks are M37 series. Looking forward to the answers to my questions. Regards, Mobilized Medic Addendum 25 Feb 07; While sanding the hood three color layers emerged with same reg. number. OD, then strata blue, then a Different OD. Star on hood small type above the hinge.
