Jeep grill trademark

The discussion about the stickers reminded me of this case. (edited to make clickable)

I have been trying to post this for several days, but have been having problems posting/replying. As far as the stickers go, my idea is to define some general guidelines. The guidelines should define the stickers enough so you will know one when you see it, but people will be able to add their own personality to them (like square headlights). Or clubs could have their own specific design. It could be as simple as a tilted moonguy with a club name or signature line around the circumference.

Re: Jeep grill trademark

The one comment that I have is that the CJ grille differs from the MB/GPW one. The last vehicle to use the Ford design was the government ordered "agri-jeeps" CJ-2 of 1945-6 (approximately 35 were ordered). The civilian marketed CJ-2A of 1946 grille is different, the headlights are not recessed for one thing. The CJ-2A is the first model produced under the Jeep trademark, which was awarded to Willys in 1950.

BTW, the first 25,000 Willys MBs featured that welded grille (referred in the article as the "Bar B Q" type) are more popularly known as the "Slat Grille" MBs. These early MBs also have WILLYS stamped on the rear body panel. The Army stopped that practice in 1942, which it thought was free advertisment (Ford's early GPWs had FORD stamped on them and that was stopped as well). Those slat grille MBs and script model GPWs are now highly collectible. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
