Re: Automotive History trivia part III

Willys-Overland originally won the contract, but soon lost it to Ford simply b/c Ford had much larger production capabilities that Willy's. Willy's did retain the name, patents on design, and did produce a good numbers. I've driven a '44 Wlly's Jeep before, fun truck!
