    Default Jeep History

    I know there are many Jeep Lovers on this site who often love to have some info about Jeeps. Here is the good news for them. I am just going to put here the history of the Jeeps since its first Pilot Model “ Bantam 1940”.

    I will be posting 1 by 1.

    1940 Bantam Pilot Model:

    Jeep History -469542


    Using the term that has become generic in the English language, this is the undisputed first "jeep." Built by the American Bantam Car Company of Butler, Pennsylvania, it was delivered to Camp Holabird, Maryland, on September 23, 1940.

    It would "go places where tankers quit and birds would go back exhausted." *****Willys MB*****

    After See IJC member Pics , I search on 4X4 and found some things which i am going to share with u Guys

    Jeep was the most influential military tactical vehicle of the 20th century. The jeep emerged at a critical point in the history of military motorization at a time when armies worldwide were switching from the horse to the motor vehicle. The jeep was a superb balance of mobility, durability, and practical design that could be manufactured in large numbers at low cost.

    The Howie Machine-Gun Carrier was an Infantry School attempt to develop an all-terrain vehicle
    to transport infantry light machine-gun teams. Although it had little to do with the technical features of the jeep,it was one of the inspirations in drawing up the requirements for a 1/4ton 4x4 truck.

    The Bantam Mark II is the sixth production vehicle from the original contract The Bantam was easily distinguishable from later 1/4ton trucks by its round front hood.

    This Bantam 40 BRC began to take on the more distinctive look of the wartime 1/4ton trucks with its new slat grill. It can be
    distinguished from the Ford GP and Willys MA by the recessed mount for the headlights on the front fenders.

    The Ford GP shows close similarities to the standardized jeep but can be distinguished by its slat grill. This is the
    67th production vehicle from the original contract and is seen here during tests at Fort Sam Houston in April 1941.

    This Willys MA introduced a reconfigured body with a slat grill, but distinguishable from the later MB by the truncated hood with Willys logo and fendermounted headlights.

    This is one of the first Willys MBs, built in November 1941 and showing some of the characteristic features such as the Willys logo stamped on the rear plate and the Tiger-Eye reflectors mounted above the rear lights.

    The Willys MB-L was an attempt to reduce the weight of the jeep; two of the pilots are seen here flanking a normal Willys MB.

    Excellent information.
    Most of the people doesent know the difference between a ford and a willys jeep.If we start counting there might be 100 differences.

    The document you displayed is very interesting . We can see the changes which company made in mb from 1941 to 1945.
