Note the cigarette lighter next to the hand brake in the lower photo. (And the Carbine in the holder in the same photo) And that the "S" has been omited from the USA registration.

Must have forgotten to take the canvas roofs to Korea.

Ben observed: "Note the cigarette lighter next to the hand brake in the lower photo."

I guess now that having a chromed cigarette lighter in the dash is "Motorpool" correct! (At least for Korea!) My jeep has a hole for a lighter in close to same spot! :mrgreen:

I noticed in the close-up pics the added-on mirror (Dodge?) and that the dog is in two different jeeps.
The two jeeps in a row have the bumperette markings one number from each other, probably 95T-20 and 95T-21
The license plates on the jeeps in the row have canvas covers on them (No General presently in the jeep)
One jeep has white painted bumper ends, and possibly silver painted outer rim edges!
A couple have reinforced windscreens.
One has a pipe added to the top of windscreen for more headroom.

Cool pics!
