Hi. I have a1952 M38 which has stars on hood, sides and bumpers but no unit markings on the hood. Were the registrations all applied at the factory or were any shipped maybe to a holding area with no registration? I donít plan to paint it so I donít want to sand the hood and lose the paint thatís there and still not find some hidden markings if it may never have had them.

Unit markings were applied to the bumper and bumperettes not the hood.

All painted on at the factory.

thx Wes. My mistake I meant registration on the hood. Also to confirm did Willyís also paint the unit markings on the bumpers or were these applied in by the reviving unit?

The registration numbers were the only thing Willys painted on the jeeps. If you take a bit of time and peruse my photo albums this will become obvious to you. The link to my albums are at the bottom of everyone of my posts. You'll find photos like these of the Willys pre-delivery parking areas:



And also review the vintage photo album:

More parking lot photos at Willys shipping facility.
