Jeep FC Blog
Fall drive in my Willys Jeep FC-150 truck. Still experimenting with the GoPro mount and field of view.
T-shirt features keywords from the 1940 “Invitation for Bids No. 398-41-9” by Quartermaster Corps for a light reconnaissance, 4×4 command car. Available in white. Made in USA.
I went with POWER KING SUPER TRACTION II. A bit aggressive, but fits the "look" of the truck.
My brother helped me change all four shocks on the old Forward Control. They were well past their prime. Ride is much improved. Hoping to get new 7.00 x 15 tires in the spring.
I found these images in the Brooks Stevens Archive, Milwaukee Art Museum website: http://archive.mam.org/brooks-stevens/
Check out the article by Steve Schaeber, MACS Technical Editor. He talks about the climate control system of the Jeep FC.
"Sure, this climate control system is rudimentary. But what really do you need? Sure, the comfort and convenience of today’s modern automatic HVAC systems are superb comparatively, but when you’re out on the farm all day, you’re not spending your time in the truck; you’re out working. At least it’s got heat to keep you warm during those cold winters!"
He also mentions both my website and the "Map of Know FCs". Read full article here:
In December 1956, writer/reviewer Bob Scollay took photographer Colin Creitz and the newest Jeep Willys model out for a jaunt in the hills above Los Angeles. His story on the Forward Control Jeep carried the title, "Wild Willys: A Heap of Jeep." The Table of Contents tagline stated: "The new FC-150 Jeep goes where even motorcycles fear to tread."
