“For Sale 1957 Jeep Forward Control 3/4 ton Pick Up Truck Model FC170
This Jeep FC170 is currently licensed, insured and driven almost every day

Sale to be executed via “Bill of Sale” only as GA does not title vehicles this old. I will also provide the current registration which most states accept for non-titled vehicles (check with your state before bidding).

This truck was completely gone through to make it a safe and reliable daily driver. It is driven locally almost every day (driven over 2500 miles in 2 years). I have taken it on several trips of 100 miles or more and it is very reliable. It will only do about 50 mph so it’s not really an interstate cruiser. Overdrive could be added to gain another 5 mph for about $800 from “Herm The Overdrive Guy.”

THE GOOD (Mostly things done to make safe and reliable)
* New brake master cylinder
* New brake wheel cylinders (all 4 wheels)
* New brake shoes (all 4 wheels)
* New Brake drums (rear)
* Front brake drums were turned
* New front wheel bearings
* Replaced full-time 4WD hubs with Locking Hubs
* New steel and rubber brake lines (all)
* New exhaust, muffler and tailpipe
* New emergency brake cables (front and rear)
* New shocks
* New speedometer cable (speedometer was in-op when I purchased it but currently reads 14418…I’m certain it’s turned over)
* Added new Volts, Oil Pressure & Water Temp gauges
* New gas tank, sending unit, fuel line and skid plate
* New electric fuel pump
* New 1 wire alternator
* Fabricated new coolant surge tank
* New carburetor
* New Air Cleaner Assembly
* Engine tune up, plugs, points wires
* Added original style engine oil filter (they were optional)
* Rebuilt transmission and transfer case (still leaks urgh)
* All new u-joints
* New clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing
* New tail lights
* New ignition switch
* Door lock keys made by matching to tumblers
* Rebuilt heater box (has working 2 speed fan)
* Replaced vacuum wiper motor with electric
* Went through ALL wiring, everything now works as it should
* Refurbished steering column mounted turn signal device
* Added dash mounted signal indicator lights
* Added dash mounted cigarette lighter/power plug
* Replaced horn button, column wire and horns
* New dimmer switch
* Added back up lights and switch with dash indicator light
* Added GMC Safari Van Dual Sun-visors
* Added larger rear-view mirror
* Added retractable seat belts (both seats)
THE BAD
* Some rust (see pics) but nothing you’d be ashamed of from appearances (exception might be the bottom left side of the tailgate). The bed floor was rusty and was replaced with solid sheet steel by previous owner
* Engine runs and drives fine but is old and a bit tired, has a lifter tick but runs and runs like a sewing machine
* Windshield is not cracked but has wiper blade wear marks on passenger side and frosting at some edges
* Wing windows, rear cab windows, back glass and driver’s door glass all fine but passenger door glass has cracks but is usable and will roll up and down

OTHER FEATURES
* 10×15 aluminum wheels with newer tires (80%+ tread remaining)
* Original front bumper modified/fabricated for 8000 pound Warn Winch mounted on 2″ receiver hitch tray (can be removed and mounted on rear or trailer and it uses welder leads to plug into battery circuit)
* Fabricated Scout bumper for the rear with 2″ receiver hitch with 4 & 7 trailer light plugs
* Added tool box with lid lifting struts to the front of the bed

COMMENTS
This has been the most amazing vehicle I’ve ever owned. It gets more attention that any Muscle Car or 4WD vehicle I have ever owned or known. It’s not a trailer queen by any means but would be a great candidate for a total restoration (good bones and complete). Every-time I stop to go in a store there are people waiting for me to come out to ask “WHAT IS THAT?” I’ve had as many as 10 people waiting for me in the Lowes parking lot, even women who in my experience aren’t usually that interested. It doesn’t go real fast, 45-50 tops but it is very reliable. I would drive it anywhere if it weren’t for the speed and gas mileage isn’t that great either with low gears.

It’s registered as a 1957 because that’s what was on the Minnesota title said but Jeep Serial Number lists indicate it is actually a 1962.”

    Hi Chuck, looks like this one sold. I’ve updated the post.

    Blaine, I agree on the bumper match. I didn’t realize that was made for the Scout.
