Willys FC-170

Make & Model Family

The Jeep Forward Control is a 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.

Introduced in 1957, FC-170 models had a 103 inch wheelbase with a 108 inch bed. This was achieved by the forward-control layout. A 1958 concept version of the FC-170 featured a 108 inch wheelbase. This was required to accommodate a new 272 ci V8 engine (based on the Ford Y-block) with a new transfer case. A new 3-speed automatic transmission (based on the Ford Cruise-O-Matic) was only available with the inline-6 due to possible driveshaft angle issues. A T-98 4-speed manual was available with both engines. This model had a gross weight of 7,000 lbs.
