The Jeep story starts with the Bantam car company which built a couple of thousand light four wheel drives for the US army before world war two. Ford and Willys-Overland made the big numbers of Jeeps (700,000), and money, during the war. They were called "General Purpose" or GP which soon became Jeep. One of the rarer and more unusual 4x4 variants was the amphibious Jeep - a miniature DUKW, a Jeep with a hull built around it (see the Military vehicles page). It is reported that they tended to be more submersible than amphibious in anything but the calmest water. Nevertheless, an Australian and his American wife "drove" one called "Half Safe" across the Atlantic in 1950.
Now after various owners, Jeep is part of Chrysler, which in turn became part of Daimler Chrysler.
