Last May, I acquired a "restored" 1942 GPW script Navy jeep. Well, it's painted Navy gray anyway. I'm well aware that most of those "Navy" jeeps were acquired by "other means" so to speak. Anyway, even though it was restored, and a decent restoration it was, I still had lots of little issues to work out. But, it's pretty much done and I'm driving it now. My question of the day is; is it considered correct for the body and all related parts to be painted the Navy gray, but the frame and bumpers/running gear to be OD green? I have heard that both ways can be correct. On the plus side, it has the GPW serial numbered engine, and the frame and data plate numbers are matching. Overall, it is a nice restoration, and I got a really good deal on it. Being a Navy guy, I'm happy with it. Just wondering about the colors? I don't really want to have to paint all the running gear if I don't have to. Thoughts? Again, I realize that "Navy jeeps" were something of a conundrum because of how most were "acquired" back in the day. Can you say "midnight auto supply"........??
