Jeep FC fans celebrate 60 years of uniqueness
Posted Friday, May 12, 2017
The dream child of famed Milwaukee industrial designer and engineer Brooks Stevens, the Jeep FC was produced from 1957 to 1965 by the Kaiser- Willys Motorcar Company.   As car sales were sliding for the company by the mid 1950’s, Kaiser-Willys was looking for ways to increase sales using the popular Jeep vehicle.  Factory engineers thought of adding a small pickup truck box to the back of the CJ-5.  However, Stevens had the idea to move the cab forward over the wheels and extend the truck bed to a usable length of six feet. The truck platform was used for many things over the years from plow vehicles and tow trucks to Firetrucks and tour vehicles.  It’s four wheel drive capability made it very popular. Stevens came up with a design for a six door minivan however that was never produced.  There were van versions produced for the Military, used as ambulances among other things. There is a Jeep FC Jamboree, scheduled for September 8-9, it would be the second nation-wide annual FC-focused event, alongside Jesse and Andrea Ybarra’s FC Roundup in Phoenix. For more information about the FC Jamboree, visit the event’s listing on Facebook.
