Some Ford GP jeeps WERE built at the factory with a mirror on the
right (passenger) side. These GPs were built for the Dutch (Netherlands
East Indies). There were over 300 of them shipped in 1941 and a photo of
one of them is on page 4 of the book "Jeeps Over the Pacific". These jeeps
had a mirror bracket on each side of the windshield frame. The mirrors,
along with electric windshield wipers and turn signals, were requirements
of the Dutch orders.
