1942 Willys MB Slat-Grille


 

The first 25,808 Willys MBs used a welded steel grille very similar to the Ford GP design, and there were a host of other differences from the later Willys. These early MBs had "Willys" embossed in the back panel. In production, the slat-grilles were given running changes until they finally evolved into the standard stamped-grille MB we know and love. Around 200 slat-grilles are estimated to survive today, including this one owned by Reg Hodgson of Edmonton, Alberta. (Reg Hodgson)
