Willys knew that the Army would want an improved model and starteddevelopment of the MA even as the Quad was being tested. In thethree-way deal, 1,500 MA's were ordered. The MA was definitley anevolutionary vehicle. Very much different than the later MB, the MAfeatured a column shift and a host of other detail changes that put itbetween the Quad and the MB. The basic drivetrain was still the WarnerGear and Spicer components of the Quad, Ford and Bantam. The MA is theleast common of the pre-production Willys, with only about 30 examplesknown to exist of the 1,553 originally built; most were sent to Russiaunder Lend-Lease. This MA belongs to the Alabama Center for MilitaryHistory. (Alabama Center for Military History)
