UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay

“Well I’m sure no expert on old Jeeps, but a friend of mine gave me this FC-170. His dad is 80 years old, and has had it for many years. This is what I would call  “Barn Fresh.” It has been sitting in a barn for at least the last 5 years or so idle. He says it was running and driving  when it was last parked.
Here is what I know about it. It’s a 63′ or 64′, and it says Kaiser/jeep Corp on the I.D. plate. It is a factory flat-bed, 1 ton with dual rear wheels. This thing is rated to cary over 2 tons! It weighs 3,720 pounds empty, and has a G.V.W. of 8,000 lbs. Delivery date was Sept of 1963. It has a 6 cyl. flat head engine, and a manual transmission. The rear end is a Dana 70 and the front end is a Dana 30. This jeep has 5:37 gears I’ve been told. This Jeep could be used for parts, or better yet… be restored.

The engine turns free, and I’m sure someone more mechanical than myself, could have it up and running again in fairly short order. I do not have a title for it, and can only offer you a bill of sale. The previous owner has alzheimers (he can not locate the title). I do have  the shop manual for it.

It’s sure not perfect, but it’s not real rusty like some I’ve seen. (I would say its 99% rust-free). This jeep is over 48 years old and being sold as is. I would much rather you plan for the worst and hope for the best, than be disappointed in any way. My opening bid is 950.00 with no reserve. Now all that having been said….. I can’t imagine finding a better FC170 for the price…I only want the buyer to be happy with it…Thanks.”

    This solid, original truck sold on E-bay for $4,050. It was exciting to watch. I wonder who bought it? I also wonder about the history of this truck? The data plate indicates that is was originally owned by the U.S. Government. I wonder which department? It probably wasn’t the Forest Service because their trucks were green.
