This is the last page of the Press Release. One thing that caught my eye is that every jeep shown here, based on what I can see, came equipped with dual windshield wipers. I tried to discover when wipers were required on all vehicles, but did not locate that info.

This is part II, the Jeep Line of Vehicles, of the Willys-Overland April 22, 1948, forty-seven page Press Release. Part I, the History of Willys-Overland, can be viewed here.

    Dave……great stuff ! I love the stamping…..forging…..grinding etc. A real “gritty” time in our country. Notice the picture of the wagon body being lowered onto the rolling chassis……two guys sitting in recliner like padded chairs ! I am in awe of the “body drop” area of any automotive assembly line……I have seen everything from Corvettes to crew cab trucks being married together and it is by far the most exciting area of any assembly line.
    Keep us the great work.
