UPDATE: Still Available

(12/13/2013) It might be worth a look.

“Here I have an extremely rare 1957 willys Jeep Forward Control FC-150 pickup for sale. It has an excellent running Hurricane F-134 inline 4 cyl engine that doesn’t smoke and always starts right up. It has a three speed T-90 transmission that shifts greats and holds gear and a Spicer 18 transfercase that also shifts great. The front and rear glass is perfect but the flat glass on the doors could use some help, upholstery is good. All the turn signals, headlamps, hi/low beams, heater and electronic functions work. It is in pretty good shape, drives and stops nicely but it could use some more TLC and attention. I want to continue the restoration but I have too many vehicles and just don’t have the time for it. I recently replaced the battery, starter, all old hoses, stainless steel brakelines and rewired the entire engine bay with correct automotive wire, automotive heat shrink connectors, chafing protection and gaffer tape. It needs new gears in the front axle for 4×4, a speedometer cable and some bodywork but it drives fine as is. 100% clean and clear Arizona title.

Email only, I can take 4,300 cash or trade for a cleanish “daily driver” JEEP Gladiator Pickup J series truck 1962-1970 with the early style “rhino” grille and a manual transmission. No other trades will be considered.”

    This truck has been at a few FC Roundups. The body needs some work from modifications over the years but I was told it ran really good. It has a lot of paint on it and would have to be stripped if you wanted to freshen it up.

    This is one of those FCs that a potential buyer, really should look at before buying.
    I have had a few calls about this truck, because it is here in Phoenix.
    It is not mine now, and I do not know who has it now.
    It is a small FC world, I did own it for a little while.
    I glanced at it before on EWillys and on CL and probably because of the price, I didn’t recognize it, or maybe because of the white, instead of yellow wheels on it.
    Craig was correct anyone that has been coming to the FC Roundup or the NW FC Get Together in WA has seen this truck. It is complete sort of.
    I had a person that was here, he bought my Cushman Postal Mailster 3 wheel Scooter. While here, he was very attracted to this little John Deere painted FC-150 narrow track, he wanted to have it, he liked it, just like it was. So, I was happy, it went to a new home where it could be loved, rather than for me to part it out and scrap it. It has changed owners, a few times since. It was the one FC, that really did need to much, for even me. Ironically, I have two new projects, to be done, another 57 narrow track that needs even more of everything, I am saving it and I have Mustard FC Cab, it had a home mede Diesel dog house. I previously thought it was an FC-170, that now is really an FC-150, that is now getting a new compete floor to become an FC-170.
    Nice current ad, but despite over 400% markup from when it left here, the current seller has done some wiring and new SS brake lines, and it has a new battery, but more important it still has a broken front ring and pinion. It still needs cab corners, it has a tailgate and a bed but they are rough like the cab. It has patch plates, to repair the previous rust. It also still has the unique hand-me-down rear fenders and gas tank from something non FC. The good things when it left here, it did always start and stop, it does a new windshield and rubber, and it did have a spinning brody knob on the steering wheel.
