The Bantam BRC-60 (or Mark II) was the first revision of the Bantam
pilot model. These hand-built models were part of the first 1/4-ton
contract for 70 vehicles (1 pilot model + 69 additional after acceptance
of the pilot model, to be distributed as follows: 40 for the Infantry,
20 for the Cavalry and 10 for the Field Artillery.). The successful
tests of the Bantam pilot model revealed some weaknesses, and
improvements including the more military looking, squared-off front
fenders were incorporated into the additional 69 BRC-60 (Bantam
Reconnaisance Car) vehicles. Only one is known to still exist, in the
U.S. Army Transportation Museum at Fort Eustis, Virginia.
