Mike, Here is the 3rd shot of the 43 Willys. It has been authenticated as original, released to the Quartermaster Corp, United States Army on March 14, 1943. The numbers on the glove box plates and the frame match and were verified by the Director of The Americans in Wartime Museum in Aden Va. If you want more info, facts, proof or pics just let me know. It looks a lot better now, this was the day she came home to my place last July. She's loaded with Kaiser stuff. You stopped 7 leaks, one more in the front differintial to get yet and a little slop in the steering to get out. Runs like new.(so far) Wayne sends Sergeant Wayne L. Miller Mike, I'm going to send you one more good close up. If you want motor of interior shots tell me and I'll shoot them for you. I found this 1943 Willys MB sitting at an old gas station just before they put a For Sale sign on it last July. The trailer is a Bantam Car Company T-3 It was fully equiped except the grease gun and the tool kit that I'm working on now. It now has Kaiser Willys brakes, starter buttom, horn kit, wheel seals, seat cover, etc.. It just gets better. Came in first in Classic Jeep catagory in the 09 Northern Va Jeep Association Contest out of 70 Jeeps. She will be in about 13 Parades in the Wasgington DC area this year to include down Constitution Avenue in two National Parades on Veterans Day and the 4th of July.

Willys MB Slat Grill, Frame number: 106128, December 1941, Body number: 6652. More than 90% of the typical Early MB parts are there, such as: pancake air filter, gas-meter, gas tank with small opening, brass window latches, solid disk rims, etc... I bought the vehicle somewhere in 1975, see the picture with the red MB. The trailer behind the Slat is a British GS-trailer of 1944. Please feel free to contact me if you do have any questions. Enjoy the pictures.
