The General Purpose Car?

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine

I received the June 19, 1943, issue of Liberty Magazine today.  I bought it because it has an article titled “The Amazing Blitz Buggy”.  I don’t have time to scan it tonight, but should have it read, scanned and posted in the next couple of days.  But, I did want to make a quick comment about it.

Having glanced at the article, two things surprised me.  One, it was written by the President of Willys Overland Joseph W. Frazer. Two, he claims the official name of the vehicle was “General Purpose Car”.  You can see that claim in the highlighted portion of the article.  That could be the reason the term “General Purpose” vehicle has been appeared numerous times.
