This May 23, 1943, American Car Company Ad was published in the Evening Star, out of Washington, D. C.. Given Bantam lost the production contract in 1941, it seems an unusual ad, especially many folks probably hadn’t heard of nor seen a Bantam vehicle.

    Bantams are my favorite Jeep. (BRC-60’s and BRC-40’s) That was part of the Lend-Lease deal, right?

    Looks like Bantam believed they would be manufacturing jeeps (or some other vehicle) for the post-war market. They only ended up making trailers.

    From what I’ve read the “production” 40 BRCwas passed on to the British and Russian armies under lend lease when the US decided to give the contact to Willy’s.
