Nuffield Mechanizations Ltd, one of the divisions of The Nuffield Organization, are deeply involved in army mechanization projects during the 1930s and 1940s. The company produced this experimental lightweight two-seater for airborne use. The major mechanical components are of Willys ('Jeep') manufacture; everything else is redesigned for compactness and reduced weight. The steering column is easily removable, and the top and windscreen could be folded down.
