Jeep hippie van

Not a CJ but was wondering if there was a category for this.
Only three were made and cannot be found.

I LOVE IT!

Obviously based on the FC series of Jeeps. Do you know when this was made, which years? Made in the US market or Europe?

Not quite a hippie van, but Craig Brockhaus brought this one to the MidWest Willys Reunion in 2017. FC Connection would be your best place to look for info on these.

My little FC-150 is quite the world traveler. It was built in Toledo in 1958 and exported to Sweden where the coach builder Scania Vabis converted her into the personal carrier you see here. It was used by the Swedish Forestry Service as a transport vehicle to haul loggers back and forth to the woods to harvest timber. The Sweds had affectionately named her “Marilyn” after Marilyn Monroe for her curves and good lines. She came back home to the States this year where I have been getting her back in shape. I have decided to leave her in her natural state for the time being but future plans include a total restoration back to her glory days as a Swedish “Pack Mule.”

Dirty hippies should be so fortunate!

I loved hippies back in the day! As long as they were girls.

Nowadays, all that hippy stuff is trendy again, only to buy a hippie van now requires tens of thousands of dollars, and they call you a hipSTER instead of a hipPie!
