Brook Stevens’ Command Cars

• CATEGORIES: Artists/Drawings, Features • TAGS: , .

During WWII Brook Stevens developed a couple different Command Car concepts. All the pics of these can be seen at the Milwaukee Art Museum’s site.

1. The first one is a 6×6 vehicle. It was made into an actual vehicle. I don’t know what happened to it. I’m pretty sure I have a press photo fo this vehicle somewhere, but I can’t seem to find it. This very well could be on the same platform as other 6x6s of the era.

2. This Command Car concept vehicle is shorter than the one above. It seems more focused on carrying people rather than organizing and commanding them. What I thought was interesting about this is that the side seats and rear doors reminded me of a Traveller.1943-08-command-car-jeep-small-version-illustration1 1943-08-command-car-jeep-small-version-illustration2 1943-08-command-car-jeep-small-version-illustration3 1943-08-command-car-jeep-small-version-illustration4

    The vehicle on which the concept was built was, in fact, a concept vehicle itself. The Willys MT-Tugg was that 6-wheeled vehicle. There were less than 20 made, and a few still exist. Despite appearing to be from the “jeep” lineage they share only a few pieces with the standard MB/GPW.
