John spotted this CJ-2A in a Westchester, NY, local history book. As he read through it, he spotted the jeep with it’s unusual hardtop. He was wondering if I knew what it was. (is that possibly the Yorktown Heights train station?)

My best guess is that it is a modified V-7 Body Works hardtop (modified on the lower door along with the front corner extension that appears to go down to the step). Here are some links and photos for comparison:

V-7 hardtop which first went on sale in 1948, so the timeline works.


These two tops look to be V-7 tops:

These two links have characteristics of Woodie Tops:
