The Pygmy is the only one of five original military Jeep prototypes — two from Ford, two from Willys-Overland, and one from American Bantam ly the American Austin Car Company that is known to still exist today. Had that not been the case, perhaps the history of Jeep would have been more ificant to Ford Motor Company.

Ford did not develop the first jeep prototype — in fact they were 3rd behind the true developer, American Bantam, and Willys-Overland. It was a 4cyl with unibody and 4 wheel independent suspension.
Actually, Ford contributed the stamped 9 slot grille. To create their own grille and to avoid trademark issuesWillys Overland created the 7 slot grille.
GP does not equal General Purpose. Willys built 5 Quad prototypes, but they all have disappeared.
A of Willys 2nd generation prototypes, the Willys MA, do exist. Finally, Bantam, Ford, and Willys all competed for the production contracts in hence the prototypes they submitted. It was Ford that was initially awarded the first contract, but that was then taken back and re-awarded to Willys.
Ford was then given the contract to act as a second source for the Willys Jeeps based on the Willys de. Correct in all aspects.
Time to end this misconception. Ford considered it but ultimately rejected it and passed it on to Willys who did decide to adopt it. I got in hot water on for even mentioning this because the grille is such a sacred covenenat among some people, and of course there surely must be all kinds of other evidence in the camps about it. I always chuckle a little because the incredibly innovative de accomplishment that Bantam achieved from scratch in a matter of months in creating what came to be one of if not the most ificant cars in US history is always glossed over as a minor footnote of jeep history in favor of the really important stuff like how many slots the later cars had in the grille!
It can be seen on loan at the Heinz History center in Pittsburgh. The Pygmy you mention is probably rightly the oldest complete jeep extant. How many or what kind it is hard to say without a forensic examination. The Spicer axles were all hand wrought and in short supply, so, maybe there is something on those to indicate they were the first set made?
I am aware of at least two Museum quality Bantam replicas with a third underway. Username or Address.
