1942 GPW?

by Jack C.
(Grants Pass, Oregon)

I bought this 1942 GPW to restore. I think it may be a prototype. It said "Ford Jeep" on the side of the hood. The dash is different and there's no speedometer. The spare tire was on the side and it has a tailgate.

No serial number. Any help on what it is?

42 GPW?

A few things to consider:
a. There are no tool indents and top bows holders.
b. The rear axle is not full floating.
c. I can't figure the dash.
d. From the pictures the floor shift doesn't appear to be there?
