Yup. The 1929 Marmon Roosevelt to be precise. (My wife's uncle actually had one). The 1929 Roosevelt had a steering-column-mounted Arvin Radio installed at the factory as standard equipment

OK Joe - You're up!

The Overland name has been around for a hundred+ years. It recently resurfaced as a fancy Jeep model. In 1926 the Overland name disappeared for a period of time, what name replaced the Overland? In what year was the replacement name third in sales, behind Chevrolet and Ford? What was the name of the last company to own the name? (before Jeep). Names of vehicle throughout history come and go, Chrysler/Plymouth, Ford/Mercury, G.M/Olds. I wonder which name will come back next.

Wippet, 1928, Daimler Chrysler, now Fiat/Chrysler. Chrysler bought AMC that had Jeep in 1987,
Willys Brazil sold it to Ford, in 1962, in 1963 the name was changed to Kaiser-Jeep, which was sold to AMC in 1970. Renault bought A major part of AMC in 1979 and took over production. Then Chrysler bought them out in 1987.
Then Daimler bought into Chrysler, it became Chrysler L.L.C.

Close enough. Overland Willys owned the name in the 20's. Take it away.

A New breed of car sprang up in America,to satisfy those who hankered after the old type runabout, and were indifferent to appearance and fashion, this was the high-wheeler motor buggy. Its heyday was from 1907 to 1912. More than 75 manufacturers made these high-wheelers.

My question name two of the top three best known.
