I'd guess about a 1949. Dad ran one of those. I think made by Mahindra before Chrysler bought the jeep name from them.

Are you trying to re-write history, wolfman?

Let me lay it out for you.
"Jeep" was a popular contraction for "General Purpose", which was from the United States Army nomenclature for 1/4 ton vehicle, general purpose.
American Bantam Motors designed the winner of a competition to win the government contract to build these vehicles for the Army in WWII.
The government, in it's infinite wisdom decided that American Bantam did not have the capacity to fulfill the contract, so they had Willys and Ford build the final design that became the Jeep.
After WWII, Willys owned the name and built the Jeep until the 1960's when American Motors bought the name. When American Motors went bankrupt, Chrysler bought the name.
They still own it.

Right. I knew Mahindra's Willys fit in there someplace between WWII and 1960.

Mahindra never owned the Jeep name or company.

I think you are confused, wolfman. If Mahindra had anything to do with Jeep, it was as a licensee. In other words, They may have built Jeeps in India, for that market, but they did not own the Jeep name, they paid for it's use.

Thanks for the info. Not the first time I've been confused. I was sure that I read in the journal where Mahindra begat the Willys name.
