The BRC-40 was the final evolution of the Bantam design. The Armyinitially contracted for 1,500 units, but 2,605 were eventuallyassembled. Bantam ceased motor vehicle production after the last wasbuilt in December of 1941 and carried on building trailers, torpedomotors and landing gear. The BRC-40 had many fine features and was wellliked by the Allied forces that used it; its light weight and nimblehandling were particularly noteworthy. At least 100 BRC-40's havesurvived the years, making them the second most common of thepre-production 1/4-tons. This restored BRC-40 belongs to SteveGreenberg of Portland, Oregon. (Steve Greenberg)
