A Chevrolet
A Kaiser
A Willys

I was lucky enough to view these 8-21-2009.

It would be interesting to see if there is any information on these rare vehicles.

The Jeep was designed, & a few built, by American Bantam. The Govt then decided that Bantam didn't have the production capacity to get the job done & cut them out of the deal. Contracts went to Willys, Ford & (?). After the War Willys won the Rights to the name & product.
