    Back in the late 50's & early 60's some pretty cool looking Willy's were produced.
    The forward cabs were quite interesting and today they are fairly rare.
    Here are some images I gathered, fleet van etc..feel free to post any of your FC photos & Stories.
    Enjoy!
    :cheers:

    ... could you take a FC, extend the frame, and turn it into a car hauler?

    When I was a kid, the neighbors had a FC (very much like the OD Green one above) that they were building into a camper -basically an overlander long, long before overlanding was even a thing-

    It was crushed when an huge old maple tree fell on it during a storm.:icon_cry:
