For the above post, I couldn't insert text for some reason. Anyway, while I was in Hershey last week, I went to the AACA library. I found these pictures of a 2A that were actually taken in 1946. Thought they might be interesting. The engine shot is to me. Just wish the oil filter decals were more legible.

Art can't say that I have seen any unfortunately.
 
Roc, I didn't notice that plate until you mentioned it.
 
This one isn't a 2A, but I thought it was high on the cool meter.

Love the pictures and made more special since they appear to be taken in a Noank, Ct boatyard, Right down the road from me.  Now, I need to find that license plate for our 46................

I really enjoy seeing these type photos.  I think B&W somehow enhance certain details and looking at these images you can see clues into what these jeeps would look like before being PO modified. 
 
I can certainly see how sifting through a bunch of these would not seem like work!

Very nice pics from many angles - love it!  Wish we knew what the serial number was...  Interesting that it is a VEC '46 with indents but the windshield 'washers' are round not square.  Been trying to figure out when they made that switch.  Thanks for the post!

I like it, my 2a has the round washers by accident...ask MD Juan...but I also would like to know when they changed...actually I think that info is already on the page.
But the combination of tool cutouts and round washers is very interesting.
