This is a new very correct and very high quality, US Made bracket. This is the Rear top bow Stowage bracket for the M38A1 military jeep. This is the bracket located at the top of the rear quarter panel. This is what held the rear part of the top bow to the body when in the down position. The slot is for the strap that holds it down to the body. Each jeep had two of these. These come in the raw and will need to be primed and painted.
