Hotchkiss-Willys

Recommended Posts

Beste mede forummers,

Ik vraag me nu al een tijdje af hoe het zit met Hotchkiss Jeeps..

De één beweert dat Hotchkiss een Frans bedrijf is wat na de oorlog hele nieuwe jeeps maakte,

de ander beweert dat de Hotchkiss jeeps MB's GPW's etc opkocht en deze modificeerde/technisch verbeterde...

Hoe zit het nou?

En ig van de modificatie/verbeteringen, welke waren dat dan?

Alvast bedankt!

mvgrt,

Hotchkiss was een franse auto fabrikant die Jeep in licentie maakte. Ongetwijfeld met wat eigen aanvullingen.......

During most of the 1950's and 60's, the French company Hotchkiss built Jeeps under licence from the Kaiser Corporation, including -- like most overseas manufacturers -- a version of the CJ-3B. A unique part of the Hotchkiss deal, due to the popularity of the many surplus Willys MB's remaining in France after WW2, was licencing of the right to produce genuine MB spare parts, and a complete (slightly modified) version of the MB for the French army -- the Hotchkiss M201.
