This is most likely a Hotckiss M201 based on the windshield supports on the windshield and not on the hood itself.

I believe you, but could you explain more precisely what is the difference of these windshield supports ?

Personally, I don't see any difference (well, maybe, except for the length of the rubber). But maybe I'm just looking at the wrong place.

@s13a Of course the Hotchkiss M201, Willys MB and Ford GPW look very similar. The later built Hotchkiss had (possibly electric?) windshield wipers w/ a longer stem/shaft extending through the windshield frame that required more distance than the original MB/GPW hood blocks provided. The Hotchkiss fix was to remove the hood blocks and attached two larger supports directly to the upper windshield frame over the wiper shaft (like the later Willys M38A1). Sometimes you will see extra tall hood blocks and extension blocks under the hold down latches to accommodate for the extra space needed by the Hotchkiss.
Not all Hotchkiss have this but when a WWII jeep does have it, typically it will be Hotchkiss. Regarding the two pics you provided when the owner tries to recreate the "wartime jeep" they often modify any Jeep to look WWII and fit pieces accordingly.
Based on the primary pic above w/ no hood blocks and mounts on the windshield I said "most likely a Hotchkiss". Hope this helps.
Best regards,
