The First 4WD's ....

Thought this was interesting:

http://www.ebroadcast.com.au/ecars/A/History.html

For modern manufacurers:

Porsche - 1900
Dodge - 1934
Jeep - 1940
Umimog - 1946
Land Rover/ Ford - 1948
Toyota - 1951

The Dodge one surprised me though

First mechanical 4WD (transfer case, drive shafts etc.) was built by the Dutch company Jacobus Spyker in 1902. Since the Lohner/Porsche four wheel drive has such an unusual status with its electric hub motors the Spyker should be considered the world's first four wheel drive. /quote

obviously the dutch again

BTW they're making cars again, just a little different now

MB is nothing but a direct copy of a Jeep. Can't hardly give Ford credit for that.

Too bad that famous Jeep grille that everyone instantly associates with it was designed by Ford and tooled by them for mass production. So you can give Ford credit for the most recognizable part of the old Jeeps. Willy's Overland originally spec'd it with seperate vertical bars that were far to costly and time consuming for mass production in war time. Ford came up with the stamped one piece design. Obscure Trivia.

Probably not the first 4x4, but in the early 1900's there was one company that made 4x4 trucks. The company name: 4WD. They supplied trucks for Pershing's campaign into Mexico in 1917 and later sent trucks to Europe during WWI. Apparently, while extremely expensive, they did very well.

Not entirely true. 1951 was the year Toyota came out with the Land Cruiser, but they had built another small four wheel drive that was ment to compete against the jeep. Toyota was pretty much forced into production of the AK10 by the government for WWII. I have never seen any pictures of any of these trucks, only drawings like these:

Not directly associated with Ford, Jesse L. Livingwood produced the first 4wd conversions for the model T in 1919-21.






*I may have got the name and dates wrong but it's close enough, bitches!

The list is missing VW in the 40s.

The Schwimwagon(sp?) was 4wd so it could climb the water's bank and get back to dry land.
