Bantam Jeep Year-Long 70th Birthday Celebration Kicks Off Summer 2010

Jeep enthusiasts, automotive and military history buffs and thousands of visitors will make their way to Butler County to celebrate the Bantam Jeep’s 70th birthday throughout 2010 and 2011. Butler is the birthplace of the Jeep. The Bantam Jeep was developed and produced in 1941 by Butler’s American Bantam Car Company in response to the U.S. Army’s request for an all-purpose military vehicle. Nearly 3,000 Jeeps were produced at Bantam’s Butler factory.

To celebrate the Jeep’s 70th birthday, a year-long celebration will begin June 2010 and culminate with the first Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival August 12-14, 2011. The festival will feature off-roading opportunities, historical displays, a Jeep parade/cruise and other events.
