While none of the WWII Jeeps has a tailgate, many attempts have been made to install one, and in this Jeep it was welded back in place. Notice the remnants of the Willys logo (arrow) typical of very early production MBs. Ford also embossed its logo in script on the rear, but the military decided to eliminate any advertising and requested that a gas can carrier be installed in the area. Script Ford and Willys Jeeps are quite rare. The taillight was originally recessed into the body on a bracket, but this is commonly converted to the style shown.
