The FC series is substantially the same as the FE, it feature revisions to the radiator grille, body trim and interior. Minor mechanical improvements were also made, with changes to the engine, suspension, brakes, gearchange linkages and the steering box. FC models are powered by a 132-cubic-inch (2.2 L) six-cylinder engine producing 72 brake horsepower. This engine is carried over from the FE series, although the camshaft was altered, the compression ratio was increased and torque was improved.
