'42 Willys Slat-Grille
The first production Willys jeeps used a welded grille similar to the Ford prototype. They began appearing in late 1941 and were built into March of 1942 to the tune of just over 25,000 units. They had many different parts than the later-production stamped-grille MBs. Today, they are a rare collectible.
