There's still reason to be skeptical though. The in-game brand "Walter" appears to be Willys (their other car is the Walter Coupe, a Willys Americar) and this vehicle is likely based on the Willys Jeep, but with the typical minor changes we see on unlicenced vehicles in gaming. Coincidentally those changes may have brought the grille closer to the Datsun's grille, but I doubt the developers had the Datsun in mind when creating this vehicle.

1) Game model's grille is a copy of Dutsuns'grille;
2) Actually, grille is the only visual difference between americal Willys and its japanese copy. In this fact, 90% that this car is Dutsun;
3) Civil variant of 4W60 was never consist IRL, but military original was in active use during Korean War. Game model of Walter Utility is just a little changed copy of Walter Military;
4) Developers can don't know about 4W60 and they just see photo of this car and think that it's a one of the Willys MB variations. Same developers name GAZ-67 as "GAZ-69" in Vietcong and describe ZiS-151 as "Soviet copy of M35". Well, they dont know much about military cars.

And what about game setting? Japan and USA were enemies, and I highly doubt that DLC War Hero is about some WWII enemy vehicles.

1) Nissan Patrol - licence-build of Willys MB which was produced in Japan for american military in Japan and Korea. Some of this cars was later saled yo civilians in USA;
2) It's a game. Same incorrect as MG-42 on italian-american gangster service.

Yeah, it seems pretty strange. But the details all point to it being a Patrol, plus the Patrol wasn't introduced until 1951, 6 years after WWII ended.

Same grille (without the bump at the top), same rear lights, it's even got the same single mirror on the left side.

That's definitely a Patrol and not a Willys.

Either one would make more sense than MB. I'm not a Willys expert, however.

I'd rather say the really rare (none have survived today) Jeep/Willys-Overland CJ-1




than the CJ-2

The civilian model is the CJ-2A.

MODEL: CJ-2A

Since it's a civilian version, shouldn't it be classe as Willys-Overland CJ?

Why are my comments removed?
Anyway: it's the 2nd car from the war hero DLC, a Civillian Willys MB.
