Since this truck has roughly the size of a Corolla (slightly narrower and actually just a few inches longer, with a shorter wheelbase), while retaining capacities comparable to a regular compact truck currently available in the U.S. market, I see no reason why commercial operators who really need a truck to perform their job couldn't benefit from a similar vehicle. Its smaller footprint could eventually render it more practical to find a parking spot in a tighter area, for example, or maneuver at certain job sites.

There was a 1961 Jeep "forward control" FC150 4x4 on Craigslist this morning for $2300 (although not this one in picture, similar) but it's already gone.

Maybe if it wasn't for the Chicken Tax, that forward-control Jeep would've faced some fierce competition back in the day...

The Jeep is actually really big on the inside. That motor sits between 2 seats almost like a military Hummer. I saw it and immediately thought what a cool electric conversion it would make with a big battery pack there. Still keep the low range gearing and I bet even the zero motorcycle electric motor would power all 4 wheels.

It does quite surprise me that Jeep doesn't have a 3rd seat right above that doghouse.

I rode to the Haight-Ashbury in the 1960s in one of these with 14 other people. I suspect there were two sitting there, one forward and one back. It was my father's 1964 Ford Econoline in red. My little brother drove.
