Willys FC-170 with bus body built by Dyviks Bruk. At Dyviks, northeast of Stockholm, this company built five or six of such vehicles. One attracted much attention at the 1959-60 Paris exhibition. The representatives of Willys-Overland were enthusiastic and had one such vehicle sent across the Atlantic to be tested at the Willys plant.

"Could this be the predecessor to the M-678?" CB.

MAY 2016 UPDATE

My good friend from Norway, Tom Schistad has recently been scouring his part of the world for FC Jeeps and has come up with quite a selection of vehicles that were used is the service industry in Sweden.  A large number of these vehicles came from a site in Sweden that is geared towards Service/Recovery vehicles.  Check them out for a look into some serious workhorses that pulled duty over the past 70 years.
