It is most likely there Bob, just a little further ahead of the arrow in front of the 1.

You can also barley see the star behind the number.

I see the arrow and the star, just no GPW. Maybe it isn't a GPW? Perhaps it is a GZW :lol:

I'd be interested in seeing the driver side grab handle area to see if there is an outline in the paint where the antenna box would have been.
Unfortunately I do not have a good photo of that area.
