I think it went like this: Willys Overland, Kaiser-Jeep, AMC, Chrysler, Daimler-Chrysler and now that new company Cerberus Capital Management  (what ever that is  ???) They own like 80% of Chrysler now.

Bantam and Ford NEVER sold Jeeps as the question states! ;)

Bantam's prototype was the BRC and was never mass produced.  Ford's vehicle, the GPW (General Purpose Willys) was mass produced for the military, based on Willys blueprints, since Willys couldn't build them fast enough.

Willys Overland Corporation was the first to actually sell a "JEEP" after WW2, when it officially trademarked the name.

Bantam made trailers for use behind Willys and Ford 1/4 ton vehicles in WW2. Bantam was also pretty "pissed" that Willys Overland trademarked the "Jeep" name after the war, since the Bantam Recon. Car (BRC) was the 1st prototype to be tested by Uncle Sam. The Ford prototypes initially used engines from their 9N tractors, and failed the tests due to overheating and break-downs, amongst other things...

Okay, I'm done for now... ;D

You can rant-N-rave all you want their Mr. Mike......Read my answer as clearly as it is posted.

Bantam - PROTO-TYPE ONLY (Added in to offer a more detailed answer) They did continue on producing vehicles for the Russian Army but NOT under the Jeep name. They were still technically in the bidding for manufacturing so I added detail that many might not be aware of.

Ford Motor Company - Yes they did produce Jeeps, and YES they did so according to the Willys Overland specifications in order to meet the military needed requirements. They never produced "civilian" models, but certainly produced military models with their "Ford" logo on the tailgate.

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it...!
Don't worry, I still hold high respect for you and always will.
