Not quite. The "CJ-7" was first produced by AMC in 1987.

The War time General Purpose, (G-P) or jeeps were either "MB" built by
Willys-Overland, or "GPW" built by Ford.

The "GPW" was a Ford code; "G"= Government vehicle, "P"= 80" wheel
base, and "W"= Willys. Ford also produced the "GPA" or amphbious
"G-P". The first "CJ" or "Civilian Jeep was produced for civilian use
in late 1945.

Amazed & pleased to learn that CJ actually stands for something that makes sense
and not some mindless letters that their marketing people just pulled out of
their butt.

....ya...I'm not a jeep guy. First car was a worn out 1954 Austin Healey and
second car an almost worn out 57 chevy.

Therefore those would be "MB".

My dad had a couple Austin Healey's way back when, late '50s/early
'60s. Then he upgraded to a '64 Jaguar XKE. I never got to drive
it...

Interesting series. I like the Rosies that are
actually working and not posed shots.

Willys plant, as show by the stamp on the rear of the jeep, once you
revert it correctly.

It is surprising that such a supposedly professional news outfit as
Life would not even bother enough to notice such obvious..



Found many photos in the LIFE archives that are that way, reversed or even
some cases inverted. mislabeled or even placed in the wrong set of images.
