Brief History/Information

The Whippet. In 1926, Willys discontinued the Overland and introduced the Whippet, which was named for the famed racing dogs, and it became an immediate success due to its good looks, small size, speed and low price.

The Whippet at first was available only as the Model 96 with a 30HP, 4-cylinder engine on a 100 inch wheelbase chassis, but the Model 98, powered by a 40HP six with a 109-inch wheelbase was added in 1927. Bodies available in both models were coupe, roadster, 2-door and 4-door sedans, cabriolet and landau.

In spite of the low price of Whippet cars they were equipped with 4-wheel mechanical brakes, seven-bearing crankshafts (on the six), Bohnalite pistons, and full pressure lubrication. These features, plus the car’s reputation for speed — a Whippet Six ran a 24-hour endurance run at the Indianapolis Speedway and set a new record for stock passenger cars costing less than $1000 by averaging 56.52MPH — helped with Whippet’s popularity.

Sadly, the Great Depression did for the Whippet and it was discontinued in 1931. Willys-Overland limped along until World War II when the military demand for jeeps which, although first designed by the American Bantam Motor Car Company of Butler, Pa., were built in huge quantities by both Ford and Willys-Overland and helped to save the Toledo company.
