FC150

This 1960 Jeep FC 150-based concept was built to tackle challenging rocky trails and the harshness of a western cattle ranch. Originally built from 1956 to 1965, the FC 150 was based on the CJ-5 and offered a clever packaging solution by keeping length to a minimum for maneuverability, with a full-length cargo box.

This concept uses an original FC 150 steel body with new underpinnings: a 2005 Jeep Wrangler chassis modified to accept a Dana 44 front axle, Dana 60 rear axle, and 17-inch white steel wheels wrapped in 33-inch BF-Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2 tires.

Inside, the FC 150 has vinyl seat covers, a vintage duck hunting pattern on the headliner, a CB radio, analog compass, and all-weather mats. It is powered by a 4-liter Jeep six cylinder engine with a three speed automatic transmission.

venomConcept cars are often made so a car’s feel can be evaluated, problems can be foreseen, and reactions of the public can be judged. Some concepts test specific ideas, colors, controls, or materials — either subtle or out of proportion, to hide what’s being tested. Some are created to help designers think “out of the box.” The Challenger, Prowler, PT Cruiser, and Viper were all tested as production-based concepts dressed up to hide the production intent.
