American Bantam is it. To be more specific, this is a 1940 or '41 Bantam Mark 2, also known as the BRC-60. This nicely restored Bantam was photographed in Normandy this past week for the D Day rememberences. The oldest Bantam Mark 2 is s/n 1007 in the Smithsonian. Many Bantam historians believe that s/n 1007 is not only the oldest Bantam jeep in existance, but actually the original pilot model after undergoing a re-build. Tillerman had this first. Our photos were posted to Facebook by Jean Baptiste Poquelin.

It is quite refreshing to see a 4x4 with only those features one needs to get a job done, no fancy traction control, sensors or computers. How many of these were manufactured?

Or riducious complex methods simply to engage front hubs like the stupid "pulse-vacuum" system on my Ranger p.u.

Well now, that is something unique, because it is the first WAI that I have actually seen in person  - a couple of times, and it didn't look like that the first time I saw it.  When I moved back to Scotland for work, almost forty years back, I got the job of checking out a rumour of three jeeps for a chap who owned a Ford GP.
They were laid up at an estate workers cottage near Balmoral ( yes, the Queen's one ). Two ordinary jeeps and this Bantam.  It was basically just a rolling shell, and had been laid up for many years because the owner broke ( smashed? ) the unique Bantam transfer case and couldn't replace it.  When I saw it again at Beltring twenty years later it looked pretty much as it does now, and the owner gave me a five minute ride for being part of the discovery.

Too many Dodges and Dodge-powered things...

That's a great story Gordon. I bet you were shocked to actually find a Bantam. 

Scott, Bantam built 70 of these Mark 2 jeeps, and then went on to build another 1500 Bantam Reconnaissance Car Model 40's. With a few follow on contracts the total of Bantam jeeps was over 2000, but Bantam was left out when the big contracts were awarded to Willys and later Ford for the production models. Well over 500,000 jeeps were built by Ford and Willys during the war.
