Inspired by the huge popularity of the American Willys Jeep, Delahaye went to build a vehicle to be used by the French military. By June, 1950, this model with a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder in-line engine was ready. The French army placed an immediate order for 4300 vehicles, "VLR" / Véhicule Léger de Reconnaissance (in French) or Light Reconnaissance Vehicle.
By the time production of the VLR ended in 1954, nearly 10,000 units were sold to the military and paramilitary forces.
