Willys Jeep FC-150 Forward Control Pickup

This is the home of my 1959 Jeep FC-150 restoration "journal".  My goal is to document the process with as much detail as possible. Photos and videos will be posted as time allows.

The Jeep Forward Control

A pick-up truck that was produced by Willys and then Kaiser Jeep from 1956 to 1965. It was also assembled in other international markets. The layout featured a cab over (forward control) design.

The Forward Control models were primarily marketed as work vehicles for corporate, municipal, military, as well as civilian use. Regular pickup box beds were standard, but customers were offered a large number of "Jeep approved" specialized bodies from outside suppliers.
