Default Anybody know exactly what this Jeep / Willys pickup is?

I was driving next to this yesterday, Looked pretty cool. Im just not sure exactly what year / make / model it is. I believe it said jeep across the front, and the decals say willys. Just thought the pro's here would know. Might even be a members vehicle.

It looks like a Jeep Forward Control to me.

Appears to be a FC150, the FC170 would be longer. Cool vehicles, I hope to own one one day. Hard to tell the year from that pic, they are all very similar.

FC150



FC170



This is the version I would want, but they are rare. I would put a modern engine in and DD it.

I believe this is the Carry All version aka M678 has windows
My links to the picture keep breaking...

M679 Ambulance version with FC170?

this is a very nice example of a 1957-1958 FC-150
I may be corrected but I am sure its pre '59 because it looks to have the narrow track axles, Wider track axles started in 1959 in the FC's.

edit: the taillights are also inboard should be 1957 or 1958
