Almost correct. It was AMC, but it was the Jeep Wagoneers in the hands of Gene Henderson and Erhard Dahm in 1972 that were the first 4WDs.

- Was the JEEP FIA homologated? If not, it doesn't count. AMC was.

Topi:

What does homologation have to do with it?

Anyway, the Jeeps were not homologated in 1972. They ran on a North American manufacturer exemption for the International Rally Championship for Makes.

I believe that they were homologated in 1973, the first year the POR was a WRC event.

As I recall, the initial Jeep homologation papers were questionned with the FIA by a certain Chrysler rallyist who thought the homologated weight of the Jeep was about 1,000 lbs too low.
