Jeep FC
“FC” stands for Forward Control, and it was a cab over design, first produced under the Willys name, then Kaiser Jeep. It was built from 1956-1965 and based on the CJ-5 platform. Available engines varied from a 2.2-liter inline-four to a 3.7-liter inline-six to a 4.5-liter V-8. A three-speed manual, four-speed manual, or three-speed automatic transmission were available, depending on model and year. While a normal pickup bed was standard, customers could customize their FCs with Jeep approved bodies from other suppliers, and thus FCs were used as dump trucks, tow trucks, flatbeds, and fire trucks. Model designations ranged from FC-150, FC-170, FC-170 DRW, FC-180, to FC-190. In 2012, Jeep brought the Mighty FC Concept to its Easter Jeep Safari at Moab. That concept was also a cab over design and rode on a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon platform and had a custom drop-side cargo box that was over eight feet long. It also had coil-over shocks, increased ground clearance, a Mopar Portal axle, and 17-inch wheels that supported 40-inch tires.
