“1957 NARROW TRACK.  I BELIEVE THIS IS THE FIRST YEAR.  HERE IS THE STORY—I BOUGHT THIS JEEP FOR PARTS BECAUSE I AM RESTORING TWO OTHER FC150’S.  THE GUY TOLD ME IT RAN GOOD, IT WAS HIS DECEASED FATHERS.  IT WAS SITTING OUTSIDE FOR 7 YEARS WHEN I LOOKED AT IT.  I PUT SOME GAS IN IT AND A FRESH BATTERY AND IT FIRED RIGHT UP.  WHEN I TIRED TO DRIVE IT ON THE TRAILER IT JUST KEPT LOCKING UP IN THE FRONT.  HE SAID HE DID NOT KNOW WHY.  WELL I BROUGHT IT HOME AND STARTED TO MESS AROUND WITH IT .  I DID NOT HAVE THE HEART TO PART IT OUT BECAUSE THE MOTOR RUNS SO GOOD.  NO SMOKE EITHER.  HE DID TELL ME THE ENGINE WAS COMPLETELY OVERHAULED AT SOME POINT IN ITS LIFE.

I TORE THE FRONT END APART AND FOUND THE RIGHT AXLE , RING & PINION, CARRIER ALL BROKEN.  DON’T ASK ME WHY, BUT I REPAIRED IT ALL WITH N.O.S. PARTS.  I PUT SOME NEW SEALS IN , REPLACED ALL THE BRAKE SHOES, LININGS, WHEEL CYLINDERS, ETC.—ALL GREASE & OIL LEVELS DRAINED AND RE-FILLED.  I ALOS GOT NEW RUBBER BRAKE HOSES FRONT AND REAR.  PLUS NEW STEEL LINES FRONT AND REAR & A RE-BUILT MASTER CYLINDER.  WELL IT RUNS AND STOPS WELL…..”
