This is an FC (Forward Control) 150, built on the Jeep chassis while it's longer mate, the FC 170 used the pickup chassis as its base. The 150 was so short and front end heavy that under hard braking it was found the rear wheels could lift off the ground. So, weights were added at the rear to stabilize it.

 

Rust was an issue with these from new. Cab corners and floors are usually gone in examples left outside for any length of time.

 

This one needs it all but at least the asking price is within reason.

Way back when I was a little bitty boy a Flying A gas station in South Boston VA had one of these for a shop truck. Cool then and cool now.

 

I had a Japanese pressed tin toy one that had a gas tanker body, but at that point in life didn't really know what type vehicle it was. It probably ended up in the hands of my cousin's master-of-disaster son, along with my Big Bruiser wrecker and other toys when Mama took it on herself to clean out my stuff after I had moved out.
