    Larry, that’s a good question. It had to do with changes in state laws.

    For a short period of time, March, 3rd through April,14th of 1948, the Willys Overland factory switched the normal location of the spare tire mount on the passenger’s side to mount on the driver’s side, which in turn necessitated the bow pockets be moved to the passenger-side. Thus these jeeps are called a “Lefty”.

    The serial number range was roughly from #176,061 through #185,769 … though there were some exceptions.

    Lots of Lefty questions and research here —

    I hope that helps,

    – Dave
