The famous FC jeep trucks

If Fiat/chrysler marketed new versions of FC cab-over trucks, would you buy?
The FC Jeeps were world famous for their abilities and innovations. See the FC trucks at The FC Connection

YES!!! I love COE pickups...but I dont think it'll ever happen. I believe theres some law about how the cab has to be so far behind the front bumper of a vehicle or something. Sucks, I think...

If wishes were horses we'd all be riding. What's the point of this? Why on earth do you think Jeep would ever bring back the FC? They sold dismally when they were new, and could only occupy such a tiny niche in the market that the tooling would never even pay for itself. Might as well wish for the return of the Model T Ford while you're at it.

Possible but not Probable, As i recall those weren't the most popular Jeeps in the line up . . . made great scenic tour Rigs other then that it really didn't fit in well . . .

Well they sold all they built, Fiat/Iveco will most likely add them to the Ram/jeep line.

So? AMC sold every Renault, Chrysler sold every K-car, Ford sold every Pinto, and GM sold every Monza/chevette/citation they built too Just sayin

Yup they sold them, They sold every one of them Doesn't mean it was popular

Try to remember that Fiat/Chrysler will market Jeeps around the world, and cab-over (COE) trucks are needed because of the world road net and parking requirements. Note: COE trucks are shorter,lighter,tougher, easer to work on and and can be more fuel efficient.

AMC sold Jeep internationally, So did AM-General well AM-G still sell's internationally . . . Chrysler hasn't been ? . . .

If you watch the IRT deadliest roads on history, you'll see lots of JC-10 Jeep's in the back ground running about and a few other CJ-Series as well as the occasional Comanche long box

So if those really are the last Jeep's the world has gotten, then Fiat might not ruin Jeep but restore it to its once former world wide glory

I love it! I always thought of putting some sort of display on the back of my car.
I would love to buy and drive the nice new car.If I could afford only to buy high sticker price on it.

The FC was a flop in the civilian world, Most I had seen were painted in OD Green or battleship grey . . .

Sucked 50 years ago n still suck 50 years from now !

The thing is, there's no reason for Jeep to build a new FC. Very few people in North America would buy them, and Iveco and Fiat already have a ton of FC trucks.

If there was a new FC, it'd just be an Iveco with a new grille.
