The serial number listed (MD43849) would suggest an M-38A1, but maybe it’s a misprint and should be MB43849?

    Even if it was MB43849…it’s still incorrect. Willys started there MB serial #’s at 100000..six digit numbers, not five. Early Ford GPW’s would have five digit numbers though. My Dec. ’41 MB slatgrille is 105557 (frame and body).
