Background To The Little Off-Roading Vehicle that Could
Who would have ever thought that this little off roading vehicle would become one of the most iconic brands ever? In 1940 the Department of War sent 135 manufactures proposals to build a small quarter-ton four wheel drive vehicle. Of the 135 only two replied with proposals, American Bantam and Willys Overland.
Bantam originally won the contract. The brueprints for the first vehicle took only 2 days. Within a short amount of time, a fully functional prototype was built. The vehicle was "Blitz Buggy" in reference to the Blitz that the Nazi Luftwaffe was waging against Britain.
Bantam could not meet the Army's requirement of 75 vehicles day and ultimately the designs where given to Ford and Willys. The rest, as they say, is history.
