The Jeep, 1940 to the Present



 
Only in a Jeep
These pictures came for a number of sources including web pages of the manufacturer, news groups and my own. Since most of these pictures came from news groups there may be a chance that your car is shown here.

I would like to invite any one that has a favorite Jeep or a Web Page that they would like added to this page to E mail me a copy.

A brief history of the JEEP
The Jeep, that wonderful little vehicle that does just about everything.
It seems like it has been with us for ever but it didn't start it's life until 1940.
In that year because of World War II the US Army issued a set of specifications
For a general purpose utility vehicle.
The specifications were as follows:

The public tender
The need for a go anywhere reconnaissance vehicle was being felt by the Army since World War I and this promoted the appearance of several proposals over the years. After several tentative versions the specifications laid down by the Quartermaster Corps, on July 7, 1940, called for: 
1. A driving front axle with 2-speed transfer case including provisions for disengaging the front axle drive. 
2. A body of rectangular design with a folding windshield and 3 bucket seats. 
3. Increased engine power (presumably in respect to the Belly-flopper prototype). 
4. Means for towing. 
5. 30-caliber machine gun mount. 
6. Blackout lighting. 
7. Oil-bath air cleaner. 
8. Hydraulic brakes. 
9. Full floating axles. 
10. Wheelbase of 80". 
11. Maximum height of 40". 
12. Maximum weight of 1275 lbs. 
13. Approach and departure angles of 45 and 40 degrees, respectively. 
14. Must reach 50 mph on hard surface. 
15. Special bracing for a pintle hook setup. 
16. No aluminum to be used for cylinder head. 
17. At least 4 cylinders.
18. 8 of the 70 vehicles to made had to be four-wheel-steering. 

Ford, American Bantam and Willys-Overland answered the call.
Bantom built the first Jeep in 1940. It was the Bantam Pilot (BRC-60).
Seventy of these units were produced.
Ford produced two units called the PYGMY.
In 1941 they produced 3700 units called the Ford GP
Willys produced 1553 Model MA s
From there the rest is history.

The name Jeep also has an interesting story to it.
The first coinage of the word "JEEP", as applied to a motor vehicle, occurred during WWI. According to Major E.P. Hogan, who wrote a history of the development of the Jeep for the Army's Quartermaster review in 1941. The word "Jeep", he wrote. "is an old Army grease monkey term that dates back to WWI and was used by shop mechanics in referring to any new motor vehicle received for a test." Jeep was still used in Army motor pools well into the 1930's as general purpose or "GP" for short. Though in a 1941 Army manual it refers "GP" as Government 80" wheel base car (Jeep). 
Before then in 1936, the term 'Jeep' was it introduced to the world by a Popeye comic strip character, "Eugene the Jeep". The only words Eugene could say were "Jeep, Jeep", and "GP" then became "Jeep". Then the "Willys Quarter-Ton Jeep was 1st used by the U.S. military in WWII. When the WWII Jeep was issued during wartime, the term "Jeep" was here to stay.

In 1970 AMC (American Motors Corp.) bought Jeep from Kaiser.
AMC brought out the CJ 7 and put a V8 in the Jeep. They also went against the trend for this type of vehicle and offered a automatic transmission.
They also gave us the Sporty 2 door Full Size Jeep Cherokees and the family Wagoneer station wagon and to top that off they brought out the smaller 2nd generation Cherokees.
In 1984 the down sized Cherokees appeared. It received a great power increase in 1987 with the introduction of the inline 4 Liter engine.
This success story lasted until 1987 when AMC went out of business and the Jeep was 
acquired by Chrysler Corp.

A further note to the history of the Jeep was provided by Rodney Hawk of Butler, Pa..
" The American Bantam Car Works of Butler, Pa answered the call of the army and designed and successfully tested and demonstrated the jeep for the Army.  Willy's Overland and Fords entries did not meet the Army's specs.   American Bantam had a very limited production capacity so the army took Bantams entry and gave it to Willy's and Ford to produce.  Unfortunately there was no recognition or compensation for American Bantam and the company shortly went bankrupt.'

Rodney also provided me with two web sites that tell the real story about the Jeeps beginnings.

 This Jeep is owned by William Smith, Nurmijärvi,
Finland.
William had the following to say about his Jeep.
" My 1981 Jeep Renegade comes with a stock 304 V8.
I just bought here in Nurmijärvi, Finland a month ago. 
I think there are only a handfull of CJ's in Finland and 
I know there is at least one Willys somewhere in the
county because I know the mechanic that completely 
rebuilt it.
  There is an interesting item about cars that people imported into Finland up until the mid 1990's. 4 wheel drive vehicles imported had lower import duties and taxes 
since if the army ever needed them, they could simply be requisitioned from the owner. Even to this day, people who have horses get paid by the government for colts born 
since the same principle applies to horses :)
  Anyway, here is my CJ7 Renegade and I'm working on making sure it runs well and I do drive it daily. I hope you enjoy the pics. The first one has my girlfriend and our 
dog in it also and shows the CJ with the hardtop and hard doors for winter. The side pipes and the turn signals on the front fenders aren't standard, and the front turn signals certainly had to be added to pass inspection here since the winch mounting blocks the original turn signals. The side pipes certainly make the V8 sound fantastic -
I doubt I want to change them!"

He had the following to say about his Jeep,
" 2,5 liter turbo diesel engine and manual gear box. It also includes the Command Trac system, which is part time only. Quite suitable as I am living in Norway where winter last from November to April, and we get lots of snow and icy roads together with temperatures down towards -25 fahrenheit. Great car, my first Jeep, but not my last!" and so true that is.
Snorre sold this Jeep and bought a

When you're wrong you're wrong and it takes
a pretty good person to admit it.
I think that Jeep made a big mistake when they dropped the 
Cherokee in favor of the plastic looking Liberty.
If a person wanted that type of a so called SUV there are many of them out there.
If you wanted a real off road SUV there are very few.
With the introduction of the 2005 Grand Cherokee and the 
2007 Jeep Commander and  Patriot, Jeep is trying to get back to the basics.
The basics that made the Jeep what it was.
They have desytled the old Grand Cherokee and
made it express Jeepness in a way it never did before.
It now looks like more backwoods capable but still looks good at the country club.
The Commander and Patriot simply look like the old Cherokee
