    Looks like there’s been a modification on the right front fender. Not rounded on the right front corner of the fender. Which makes me wonder if war damaged jeeps were shipped to various behind the lines locations to be used as parts for various odd jobs. Isn’t it well known of the Philippines metal and mechanical ingenuity?

    There’s a real one at the Army Transportation Museum in Newport News Virginia that I got to visit with a month or so ago. Search ‘jeep on train rails army museum’ and a picture of it should pop right up.
