The Bantam BRC-60 (or Mark II) was the first revision of the Bantampilot model. These hand-built models were part of the first 1/4-toncontract for 70 vehicles (1 pilot model + 69 additional after acceptanceof the pilot model, to be distributed as follows: 40 for the Infantry,20 for the Cavalry and 10 for the Field Artillery.). The successfultests of the Bantam pilot model revealed some weaknesses, andimprovements including the more military looking, squared-off frontfenders were incorporated into the additional 69 BRC-60 (BantamReconnaisance Car) vehicles. Only one is known to still exist, on loan from the Smithsonian Institution to the Pittsburgh Regional History Center. (Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission)
