Car and Driver: The Way Forward: This Jeep Pickup Looks Mighty Good to Us

Look, the long-promised Jeep Wrangler pickup truck can’t get here soon enough. Fiat Chrysler confirmed it will arrive in 2017, but if you can’t wait that long, Bring A Trailer has the perfect thing for you: a delightfully clean, straight, and dry 1959 Jeep FC150, the adorable cab-over-engine, forward-control pickup based on the original CJ5.

-

Fully restored and once displayed at the Petersen Automotive Museum, this 1959 model has a short, 81-inch wheelbase and the same 134-cubic-inch Hurricane F-head engine as the CJ5, which eventually begat the Wrangler. The Brooks Stevens–designed body is charming in white and red, immediately recognizable as a Jeep but wholly unlike the Wranglers, Cherokees, and Grand Cherokees that spring to mind when we think of the brand.

At the time of writing, bidding has yet to surpass $20,000 on Bring A Trailer. You probably won’t be able to touch a 2017 Wrangler pickup for that money, nor will your brand-new pickup truck have anywhere near as much style.
