From the Manufacturer --------------------- In July 1941, Willys Overland carried off the contract responding to a strict specification sheet concerning a small multi-purpose cross-country vehicle, easy to drive, to upkeep and to repair. Assembling was straightforward, using just the necessary parts. The jeep was born: a "great looking" perennial vehicle. After the United-States joined the war, orders for the jeep were becoming so considerable that a second manufacturer was needed-Ford, to be specific. The vehicle, so specific in shape, was seen on all the theatres of operations. Present as from the first day on the normandie beaches in June 1944, the jeep was (from then on) associated in people's minds to the liberation. Light and compact as well as quite powerful, the jeep operates just as well in swamps as on bad road, whereas heavier vehicles would find things difficult. Its sturdiness is equaled only by its versatility. Over 630 000 jeeps were manufactured in all.
