If you mount the spare tire on the hood can the windshield still fold down? It doesn't seem like there is room however I have seen at least one pic with the windshield folded all the way forward while having a spare on the hood. help please
thanks

Yes it's possible. My Thing had a tire on the hood when I bought it.

No... Embarassed The previous owner was a great collector of military cars. All the logo were hand painted and are in reference to the German WWII africa korps logo. This paint job was made between 1980-84 and then stored to this summer when I bought it. Regretfully, the man died 3 years ago and I have not a lot more info about this car. I bought it from his son.
