I have seen some vintage photos of the red tour FC Forward Control Jeep trucks, but I was elighted to find this article about the restoration of one. The Jeep was found in Colorado and was lovingly restored from the monster truck status you see in the photos below to a period correct San Juan Scenic Jeep Tours company vehicle. The owner finished the restoration within a week of his trip to Colorado and was able to swing by the San Juan Scenic Jeep Tours office to show off his restoration. Needless to say, everyone loved the truck! There is a lot more photos on the FC Connection website.
Howe Fire Apparatus converted a lot of Jeep FC trucks into fire trucks in the late 50’s and early 60’s. The Anderson, Indiana company was known across the nation as one of the top builders of fire trucks. The photo above shows an unique Jeep FC-150. Notice that the two large reels are connected to a number of small carbon diorxide tanks.
