If the four wheel drive and the name of Willys are practically synonymous, it is because experiments and trials have been unlimited in producing the powerful, versatile, and compact package called a Jeep. From the wartime “WAC” to the present-day models, wheel power of these cars has been steadily improved.

This paper is well illustrated and presents ideas that should titillate the exploratory instincts of inventive engineers.
