The very first 1/4-ton reconnaissance and liaison car as built by the first producer—American Bantam Car Co. This car was delivered to Holabird Quartermaster Depot on September 11, 1940. (photo courtesy of William Spear.)
This jeep has now be recreated by Duncan Rolls and looks perfect.  Here is a shot of his jeep in black and white–to me it looks like it is straight out of 1940!
