Cab over engine Jeeps/Willys?

Anyone on here have one of these, also know as a Jeep Forward Control, 150 short wheelbase and a longer wheelbase 170 style, came in truck, or van versions. I think Jeep took the design over from Willys/Kaiser from 1956 to 1965. Basically these were pug type looking vehicles, ugly to all but the owners. Dodge also had a version A-100 64 to 70. I saw one last year at the Jeep Blessing, pretty neat looking, if I had the room I'd get one to drive around.

I saw one on the road last summer, looked like it was in perfect condition as it was probably restored.

Looked sweet.

I think the Little Caesar's in Okemos at Okemos Rd and Jolly has a red one they park out front in the summer.
