Thanks for posting this collection. Unbelievable!
former jeep addict here as well. I had never seen a van liek that before either.

Why was I not told of this open house?


The four door Willys is incredibly rare, maybe a dozen were made. It's the holy grail for Willys nuts.


I'm going to try really hard to get my old Willys finished over the winter.





She's been sitting much too long.

The FC170 ambulance is pretty damn cool as well. Those are kind of rare since they were for the Military and had a Cerlist Diesel engine. Thanks for sharing!
It's in Cazadero, CA, near Guernville and the Russian River. Drop in on them and browse around.

Check out the cool Glennwood Green pickup in the video. Mine was originally this color with Seafoam Green highlight, a $19 option to two-tone.

Wow! Thanks for the link! This is definitely an Advrider chase vehicle. Who needs a Pinzgauer, Mog or a Land Rover FC when you could have this?

If you ever see one in person you'll know why people use Mog's, Pintz's and Landy FC's. The FC150 is tiny. It's built on a modified CJ-5 frame with a 81" wheel base. The FC170 is a bit longer at 103".

Thanks to all that responded, it was a fun day and gave me more inspiration to get mine drivable.

I do read German, and it's listed as sold for ~$2,500.

Mine, sitting for 10 years, sprayed some WD40 in the cylinders, rotated engine, cranked with starter, put plugs back in, sprayed carb cleaner in and vroom!
