Jeep History: "Autobiography of a Jeep" 1943 United Films 10min

more at http://cars.quickfound.net/ "Describes the designing of the Jeep to meet military needs of being compact, light weight and maneuverable over rough terrain." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeep Jeep is an automobile marque of Chrysler (itself a subsidiary of Fiat). The first Willys Jeeps were produced in 1941 with the first civilian models in 1945, making it the oldest off-road vehicle and sport utility vehicle (SUV) brand. It inspired a number of other light utility vehicles, such as the Land Rover which is the second oldest 4-wheel-drive brand. The original Jeep vehicle that first appeared as the prototype Bantam BRC became the primary light 4-wheel-drive vehicle of the United States Army and Allies during World War II, as well as the postwar period. Many Jeep variants serving similar military and civilian roles have since been created in other nations. Bantam Reconnaissance Car When it became obvious that the United States was eventually going to become involved in the war raging in Europe, the U.S. Army contacted 135 companies asking for working prototypes of a four-wheel-drive reconnaissance car. Only two companies responded to the request, The American Bantam Car Company and Willys-Overland. The Army had set what seemed like an impossible deadline of 49 days to supply a working prototype. Willys asked for more time but were refused. The bankrupt American Bantam Car Company had no engineering staff left on the payroll and brought in Karl Probst, a talented freelance designer from Detroit. After turning down an initial request from Bantam, Probst accepted the job after being asked again by the Army, and initially working without salary, went to work July 17, 1940. Probst completely laid out plans for the Bantam prototype, known as the BRC or Bantam Reconnaissane Car, in two days, and the next day estimated the total cost of the vehicle. On July 22, Bantam's bid was submitted, complete with blueprints. Much of the vehicle had to be assembled from existing off-the-shelf automotive parts, and the custom four-wheel drivetrain components were supplied by Spicer. The hand-built prototype was completed in Butler, Pennsylvania,[9] and driven to Camp Holabird, Maryland, for testing by the Army on 21 September 1940. The vehicle met the Army's criteria, but its engine did not meet the Army's torque requirements. Ford Pygmy and Willys MB The Army felt that the Bantam company was too small to supply the number of vehicles it needed, so it supplied the Bantam design to Willys and Ford who were encouraged to make their own changes and modifications. The resulting Ford "Pygmy" and Willys "Quad" prototypes looked very similar to the Bantam BRC (Bantam Reconnaissance Car) prototype and Spicer supplied very similar four-wheel drivetrain components to all three manufacturers. Fifteen hundred of each of the three models were built and extensively field-tested. Willys-Overland's chief engineer Delmar "Barney" Roos made design changes to meet a revised weight specification (a maximum of 1,275 lb (578 kg) including oil and water). He was thus able to use the powerful but comparatively heavy Willys "Go Devil" engine, and win the initial production contract. The Willys version of the car would become the standardized jeep design, designated the model MB and was built at their plant in Toledo, Ohio. The familiar pressed metal Jeep grille was actually a Ford design feature and incorporated into the final design by the Army. Since the War Department required a large number of vehicles to be manufactured in a relatively short time, Willys-Overland granted the United States Government a non-exclusive license to allow another company to manufacture vehicles using Willys' specifications. The Army chose Ford as the second supplier, but building Jeeps to the Willys' design. Willys supplied Ford with a complete set of plans and specifications. American Bantam, the creators of the first Jeep, spent the rest of the war building heavy-duty trailers for the Army....

SAS Willys jeep rebuild part 1
Restoration of a 1944 Willys MB jeep. The body tub was a rotten Hotchkiss one, so a repro body tub was used. Chassis, axles, engine, gearbox, grill and many little parts are genuine WW2. The Jeep is being built to represent one used by 4 SAS as used behind the lines in Brittany, France. 1 and 2 SAS, were British, 3 and 4 SAS were French, and 5 SAS were from Belgium. Many hours were spent studying original photographs to make an authentic replica. The first 10 or so jeeps were modified in Scotland. 4 were parachuted into France, the rest were brough in by glider. After Brittany was mostly liberated, the SAS regrouped in Vannes for a refit. A convoy of 40 jeeps and Bedford trucks were driven from the UK via Normandy, and modified by local garages to the individual crews requirements. Consequently no 2 jeeps are identical. See my next videos as the restoration progresses.

1944 Willys Jeep - Moab 2011
Po serii modyfikacji Willys Quad zamienił się w Willysa MA, a następnie w Willysa MB. Lecz armia amerykańska i świat ochrzciły ten pojazd mianem „Jeep"®. Mówi się, że miano to powstało z niedbałej wymowy głosek 'GP' (Dżi-Pi) -- wojskowego skrótu słów 'General Purpose'. Mówi się także, iż nazwa pojazdu pochodzi od popularnej postaci 'Eugene the Jeep' z kreskówki „Popeye". Bez względu na swą genezę, nazwa Jeep przyjęła się na dobre i została synonimem pojazdu terenowego, a sam pojazd -- ikoną historii II wojny światowej. Willys MA miał dźwignię zmiany biegów na kolumnie kierownicy, głębokie wycięcia w burtach nadwozia, dwa zestawy wskaźników na desce rozdzielczej i dźwignię hamulca ręcznego po lewej stronie siedzenia kierowcy. Ponieważ pojazd musiał być zubożony w celu dotrzymania wymaganej przez armię masy 980 kg (wg zmodyfikowanej specyfikacji) -- ówcześnie „zbędne" wyposażenie wzbogaciło model MB (drugiej generacji) -- podnosząc jego masę o prawie 181 kg ponad wymagany przez wojskowych poziom. Na potrzeby armii amerykańskiej Willys-Overland wyprodukował ponad 368.000 pojazdów, a Ford na mocy licencji -- około 277.000. Surowy lecz solidny i niezawodny pojazd w kolorze oliwkowym na zawsze utrwalił się w pamięci jako współtwórca zwycięstwa aliantów w II wojnie światowej. Po zakończeniu wojny w 1950 roku Willys dokonał zastrzeżenia znaku towarowego „Jeep" i planował adaptację pojazdu jako terenowy do celów rolniczych -- 'cywilny' Universal Jeep. Jeden z ówczesnych sloganów reklamowych Willysa głosił, iż „Słońce nigdy nie zachodzi dla Wspaniałego Jeepa" -- a firma nie ustawała w wysiłkach, by w skali światowej zasłużyć na miano ekskluzywnego architekta (i wytwórcy) pojazdu zwanego Jeep.





JEEP WILLYS
El fallecido General George C. Marshall definió al Jeep como La mayor contribución de los Estados Unidos de América a las operaciones de guerra modernas. De hecho, la historia de la Segunda Guerra Mundial es también la historia de los primeros años de Jeep, dado que después de 1941 participó en todas las campañas como vehículo ametralladora, vehículo de reconocimiento, ambulancia, camioneta, limusina para el frente, portador de municiones, máquina para el tendido de alambres y taxi.

Land Rover's History
Land Rover is a British car manufacturer with its headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire, United Kingdom which specialises in four-wheel-drive vehicles. It is owned by the Indian company Tata Motors, forming part of their Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) group. It is the second oldest four-wheel-drive car brand in the world (after Jeep). The Land Rover name was originally used by the Rover Company for one specific vehicle model, named simply the Land Rover, launched by Rover in 1948. Over the following years it developed into a marque encompassing a range of four-wheel-drive models, including the Defender, Discovery, Freelander, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Evoque. Land Rovers are currently assembled in the company's Halewood and Solihull plants, with research and development taking place at JLR's Gaydon and Whitley engineering centres. Land Rover sold 194,000 vehicles worldwide in 2009. Although the brand originates from the original 1947 model, Land Rover as a company has only existed since 1978, prior to this it was a product line of the Rover Company which was subsequently absorbed into the Rover-Triumph division of the British Leyland Motor Corporation (BL) following Leyland Motor Corporation's takeover of Rover in 1967. The ongoing commercial success of the original Land Rover series models, and latterly the Range Rover in the 1970s in the midst of BL's well documented business troubles prompted the establishment of a separate Land Rover company but still under the BL umbrella, remaining part of the subsequent Rover Group in 1988 under the ownership of British Aerospace after the remains of British Leyland were broken up and privatised. In 1994 Rover Group plc was acquired by BMW. In 2000 Rover Group was broken-up by BMW and Land Rover was sold to Ford Motor Company, becoming part of its Premier Automotive Group. In June 2008 Ford sold both Land Rover and Jaguar Cars to Tata Motors. - SUBSCRIBE!

Abandoned relic runs again
Truck comes to life again after sitting abandoned for decades in the heart of the Alaskan wilderness. The engine is the rugged Hercules JXD. The truck was later driven 75 miles back to civilization. Studebaker US6 застывшими во времени Это 1945 Studebaker US6 был оставлен в пустыне Аляски на протяжении двух десятилетий. Это видео, лето 2009 Studebaker US6 возвращается к жизни и отвезли обратно в цивилизацию расстоянии 75 миль. Studebaker US6 получит некоторые восстановления. В настоящее время семь Studebaker US6 грузовики все бегут и дисков. Alaska , God's Country. There are a lot of really good beer drinking stories about lost relics or abandoned treasures in the massive Alaskan wilderness. There are stories of lost gold mines and eccentric miners who vanished or died after burying a cache of gold in the late 1800s or early 1900s that's just waiting for some lucky soul to stumble over. There are dozens stories of wrecked WWII aircraft and one particularly of a crash landed and mostly intact Bell P-39 Air Cobra that is said to have belly landed in eight feet of powdered snow somewhere up around Eureka Summit during the war. The locals however are pretty tight lipped concerning these stories and dont give up their secrets very often , especially to city slickers. Most of these tales are just that, good stories, and are probably based on a grain of truth and nothing more but they make good stories and theyre OUR stories. Myself, Ive always enjoyed hearing the tales and like most folks find my voice raising with each question that I ask in relation to the particular subjects where abouts, knowing full well that the guy telling me the story knows as little as I do. Yet having always been a WWII truck and aircraft enthusiast its easy to get wound up with each telling of a certain story. Ad to it the mystique of the Alaskan wilderness and a possible abandoned gold mine somewhere in the telling and well, its a story worth repeating and maybe even adding one or two of my own personal details to it for good measure. One story that has been around for decades is that of a big game hunting guide that had a place north of Eureka. The story goes that he had a Studebaker US6 from WWII that he used to haul supplies from an air field that is 75 miles out of Eureka. According to the story, the old gentleman had eventually died and the Studebaker had sat abandoned at the remote airstrip ever since. The truck's engine had, had water instead of anti-freeze in it and therefor supposedly froze up with ice and broke the cylinder head. The truck , it is said, is all there and intact. To claim this relic would be simple, all a person would have to do is find a cylinder head for a 1940s Hercules JXD , fly up to the air field that is 75 miles from no where , install the cylinder head and then get a truck running that has sat deteriorating for 20 years in the Alaskan wilderness , have someone fly you gas and beer and then drive a 1945 Studebaker 75 miles back to civilization. Oh and did I mention that there are no roads and plenty of grizzly bears too? That really would make a good story. Well thats just exactly what Robert did. The story of the old truck is true and I loaned him a Hercules JXD cylinder head in August of 2009. Ray has an airplane and flew 'Close Air Support' hauling fuel , beer and moral support from all of us here at home. I think the videos explain the rest. Oh and if you ask why did they do this? If I have to explain , you wouldnt understand.
