1956 Willys Jeep® FC-150 Pick-Up

Speaking of the Arctic… December has arrived, and if the snow isn’t flying already in your neighborhood, it’s sure to soon. Don’t you wish you had a Jeep® Forward Control truck to get you through the workday? This 1956 4×4 truck was designed by Brooks Stevens with a full-size cab over the engine to give plenty of room in the back, making it versatile and easy to modify into an airport service truck, delivery truck, wrecker, dump truck, fire truck, or other utility vehicle. The engineering was based on the existing CJ-5 frame and wheelbase, and the vehicle was powered by the Hurricane F-head and L-head 4-cylinder engine. Imagine the possibilities – just hook up a snowplow and get to work.

    In VENEZUELA I knew two Jeep Willys FC-150, one with short chassis in Guanare city and other with long chassis in Maracay city… Last time that I saw them both rolling was around 1983.

  6. I knew a guy who had two of these with snow plows. They were perfect, short turning radius, solid drive drain (except clutch) and excellent viability when working with snow plow. Nobody makes anything half as good these days!

    Kinda ugly but somehow very cool.  Looks like it might fall on its nose if you stopped too fast…..

    I rode in one of those with my uncle. We use that to get back in the wilderness for church camp. It was awesome. If they were still making those I would get one myself.

  10. Oh, please make this model again, or the Scrambler, or the Honcho. How about putting the Gladiator into production? We need a Jeep truck.

    Yes, the market want a grand Jeep new pickup, it should be as large and powerful as the Dodge RAM but with the Jeep’s spirit… The Wagoneer could also be a spectacular return, but it will be like the last Commander but longer and stronger (WITH CHASSIS).

  12. Ugly enough to love, but the FC-150s had to have weights attached to the back to keep them from tipping on their noses on steep downhills.  I’d still own one in a heartbeat.
