THE BANTAM RECONNAISSANCE CAR (BRC)
Is down temporarily for purposes of historical revision :~)
Exciting, but extremely voluminous new research gives us some new facts
and insights into the creation of the original jeep. We need time to
digest the material and ill come forward soon with the ONLY complete
history of the creation of the jeep.We will confess up front that some
of the material which has been on this page for about 15 years has been
overstated and in some points in error. (No worse than anyone esle
In the meantime, please help us in 2015 celebrate the 75th anniversary
of the first jeep ever made, the first jeep to be called a jeep, the
first jeep to be commissioned in the Army, and the first jeep to see
combat: The Bantam Reconnaisance Car!
