Thanks Jeep....but after looking at these pics, mine don't belong on that
thread. These are old worn out jeeps, not cool and/or wierd.

But i will bookmark it.
I think these old Jeeps are very cool. Post them there.

FC-150
Introduced in 1956, FC-150 models used the frame and wheelbase of the CJ-5 81 in (210 cm) with a 78 in (200 cm) bed. In 1958, the FC-150 received a new, wider chassis. Its track was widened from 48 in (120 cm) to 57 in (140 cm).

Production:

The FC Jeeps were exhibited to Jeep dealers in a closed-circuit telecast on November 29, 1956, and were on display for the public at the December 1956 National Automobile Show in New York City. The FC-150 went on sale at dealer showrooms on December 12, 1956. The initial response to the four-wheel drive FC Jeeps was favorable. Their best sales year came in 1957, when 9,738 trucks were sold. After the introduction of the FC-170 in 1957, FC-150 sales dropped to 1,546 units in 1959, before rebounding to 4,925 in 1960. Neither model became the big seller that Willys had hoped. Total production in nine years was just over 30,000 units. The FC line was discontinued in 1964.

I am sure the windshields are out there, but would be tough. There are
companies that specialize in making parts for old vehicles. They
may have plans or other data bases for parts.

There are also a number of dealers that hold onto inventories
( maybe better termed "stuck with") of discontinued autos that turn into
a gold. I knew a guy who showed his 10 yr old son how he ordered parts.
Well, the kid ordered lots of parts for old muscle cars. His father
was quite ticked off. 30 years later, he had a gold mine!

Cico7, I don't understand why you're calling him a spammer. Are you being sarcastic?


Edit: Oh, I see the screen name is different from the original comment. Maybe his post was deleted. Never mind.
