Bantam Pilot
American Bantam Car Co. was the first to deliver what would become known as the “jeep”.

Right before entry of the US into WW2, the US Infantry recognized a need for a light reconnaissance vehicle. During the summer of 1940, American Bantam Car Company developed the 1/4-ton vehicle that would revolutionize warfare. Sadly, the first  company to deliver the vehicle would not end up producing them for the war.

These make great gifts.  It is not too early to be thinking about Christmas and the Holidays!
