1942 Willys-Overland Jeep MB
The famous World War II Jeeps were manufactured by Willys-Overland, a company that Walter P. Chrysler briefly ran in the early 1920s. The company was headed by a former Chrysler executive when these tough off-roaders went into production.

General George C. Marshall called them "America's greatest contribution to modern warfare" and they became the savior of Willys-Overland, laying the foundation of a global brand. Jeep became part of Chrysler in 1987.
