“Highway and byway; woods and water; change and rest; health and tan; freedom and happiness; comfort and economy – all are yours in the new Overland.”
This ad from 1923 is from the Willy-Overland Company of Toledo Ohio – the forerunner of Jeep. For several years during the 1910s, Overland was the second largest car company in the US. By the mid 1920s the company was in trouble, and a year later, the Overland was no longer made. The company did remain in business, producing other lines, and in the 1940s, developed the Jeep for war use.
I love the idea of just packing up the entire family (dog included) into the Overland, finding a shady spot by a lake and setting up camp! “Travel with comfort. Travel with pride. Travel with economy. Drive an Overland and realize the difference.”
