It's supposed to have a pair of surfboard sized skis under the front wheels, and came with a enclosed and heated tagalong sled for ambulance work.
Oh, I want - no, no, I COVET that machine.

There is one for sale right next door to me.

Probably not running , probably too much money.

For 500 without motor I would drop a small block in that thing and rat rod it.

The FC van sticks out to me as well. Especially in the beautifully faded psychadelic Olive Drab. As far as I can tell it's an FC-170 that someone did a nice job of customizing into a panel van. As a extremely enthusiastic Jeep junkie before I got into motorcycling, I can't say I've ever even seen a pic of such a beast before. It's beautiful.

Thanks for posting this collection. Unbelievable!

Impressive!

Where exactly is that? Being a 'Jeeper', I'd love to see all that old stuff. I really like the unrestored ones. They have a lot more character. Love the CJ-3B. 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!
