I think that Kaiser/Willys had a better design for a forward cab pickup with the FC series (1956-1965) which was designed by Brook Stevens (the creator of the Wagonaire and other Studes).

But look what I found on the Wikipedia website (Kaisers made in Spain):

They look kind of similar to the Stude prototype.
And here is a chassis made in India by Mahindra which retains the original FC front.

Ya, definately, but remember, that "Westinghouse" was a prototype. I bet as time (would have progressed) the style would have improved. Just dont get into a head on in any of them![xx(]

Since we're going brand X, why not a Dodge A100?

I like the Dodge A100's. I think they were the only forward cabs to offer a V8. Now who's gonna post a Corvair pickup? [8D]

Don't forget the granddaddy of all the post-war compact cab-forward pickups, which may have been the reason the American car and truck manufacturers got into the market in the first place....

Going back to Chris's picture - AMERICAN LaFRANCE must have liked that styling because they used it on their fire trucks for years. Function before form.

Those are cool, I almost bought one from a friend but it was too rough.
I think it was a FC-170?
I'm a sucker for cars and trucks that I have never seen before!

You could certainly see what you were doing running this plow--much better than when mounted on a conventional cab!

Everytime I see one of these, I see a resemblance in Studebaker concept family lineage. [?]

I've said it before, that Stude prototype reminds me very much of an airport tug.
