    regarding the picture of the "WILLYS" cj5---

    Is it an optical illusion, or does the hood look like a cross between the cj3b and cj5 hood?

    It doesn't look exactly like a cj5 hood...

    It would be interesting to see one in person... Even more interesting to see one in my shop..

    Also interesting is no snorkel cutout on the hood, but has the battery box cover on the cowl. It's apparent they quickly decided two different production hoods wasn't worth the cost.

    It would be nice if our friend would respond again. Serial number would be nice along with the pics we're desperate for. ;)

    Just went and looked at a '55 yesterday, #20973, says "JEEP" on the side, "WILLYS" on the tailgate.

    Agreed, but patience! It's only been 2 days since the original post! He's new, he hasn't learned to live, eat, sleep and breathe ECJ5 yet. ;)
