The 1940 BANTAM/JEEP RECONNAISSANCE CAR (BRC) became a reality when it was clear that the US would be involved in World War II. With a 49 day deadline, Karl Probst laid out a full set of plans in two days for the prototype. Most of the vehicle could be assembled from off-the-shelf parts together with custom four-wheel drivetrain components which Spicer supplied. The vehicle met all the Army's criteria except engine torque…this was the beginning of JEEP.

AUTHENTICITY : Each drawing is limited to 10 signed and numbered prints regardless of size and comes together with a certificate & 10SERIE 'medallion'

PAPER : Professionally ink printed onto 350gsm Hahnemühle Museum Etching paper to achieve the best color & light fastness.

FRAME :

Profile : A 14 x 34mm (0,55 x 1.33inch) beveled profile made from Obeche (African Maple) which is depended upon for its stability and relative resistance to warping once machined. It is offered in either color black or white.

GLASS :

'Museum Glass' is 'non-reflective' and absorbs damaging UV light to allow over 98% transmission allowing only the best vibrant colors to translate and is advised for all the limited & signed prints.

'Standard' picture framing glass is a 2mm clear float glass. It is inexpensive and will protect your artwork from dust and physical damage.

BACKING :

Full archival acid-free board with 10mm deep-sunk (spacer) in same to create depth and set the artwork back off the glass.
