That looks like a FC-150 that was built into a motor home. If it is, that is a LOT of modding.

I'd love to know more about that. I'm guessing it was built by a coach builder that isn't around anymore

That little Forward Control is pretty cool. It could be an FC170 DRW concept truck with 226 6 cyl or 272 V8 motor

Why did they stop making the FC? Such a cool truck.
