    That second CJ back has a vented windshield. Photo of '69 model year from the hood reflectors?

    Interesting that the Wagoneer has a full grill but in the top center that unit has the small grill.

    Good eye! Looks like a pickup is in line--a 1969 Gladiator.

    Did ‘69 have chrome hood hold-down latches?

    Not chromed? Never would have guessed that. The zinc plating looks like poop after a while. Especially when exposed to road salts and other snow melting chemicals.

    In this case, thank goodness for the ingenuity of the aftermarket to make chrome and stainless steel versions of this part.
