Facts about the model

Today we know Willys for Jeep but they have done so much more. Willy's passenger car brand Overland came in 1926 with his Whippet, who became a fierce competitor of Ford T and A, Chevrolet International, De Soto Model K and Pontiac Big Six. Whippet was a light, fast, economical and durable car with four-cylinder engine, four-wheel brakes and water pump. The body was compact but spacious. With a wheelbase just over 100 inches, it was bigger than Ford's ever more old-fashioned T model and the Whippet quickly came up in hundreds of thousands of manufactured copies. To the year 1927 Whippet became a brand but it became short-lived. The depression was in full swing and sales dropped rapidly.
