  2. Another very dubious bitza Jeep with toyota engine/gear box and strange chassis number that the MVT have verified as 1942, ...the front axle looks like it may be the only apparent ww2 part
  3. MB/GPW Jeeps are one size fits all, as you say apart from cutting a notch into the wheelbox to move the seat back there is no other way to improve driving position, I have owned Jeeps that the driving position was different it was because the backrest of the seat was bent back a bit that gave bit more room, perhaps try some spacer washers under the two front mounts that would tilt the seat back a bit, thin backrest padding too. The later CJ Jeeps had a notch pressed into the dashboard to raise the angle of the steering column
