Like this? Sucker would buck like an old CJ Jeep though.


Remember the old flat nosed Jeep FC-150 pickup trucks? When first introduced they had a problem with them pulling a reverse wheelie, standing up on the front bumper during extremely hard panic stops. The Jeep solution? A steel ballast plate mounted between the rear bumper and the bed.
(A buddy of mine has a Jeep FC-150 wrecker... he is a cesspool of knowledge on these things)

Sure did, that started in 1964 (pilot program started in 1962). All courtesy of John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Food_Stamp_Act_of_1964

Re: Picture Of The Day

Yah, that's short enough for photoshop, anyway.
I remember one of those Jeeps, the Standard Oil station where my Dad did all his business, had one........with a plow on the front! Looked like it wanted to stand on it's nose, standing still. Wasn't long before John, the owner, upgraded to a Jeep pickup truck.......
Well, back then we didn't have one in six people on food stamps, anyway........

Re: Picture Of The Day

I may have a few photos suitable for this thread. Here’s one from either Rod & Custom or Car Craft back around 1961. As best I remember the grille is 1960 Chevy, and the lamps are Oldsmobile. I don't remember the bumper and splash pan:
