Selling a 1957 FC170 (clear NJ title) that I’ve fully built out over the last year. I’ve done an insane amount of work to the truck to get it to be an awesome driver. Will go down the highway at 65 with zero problems. Everyone will stop you to chat. Everyone will pull out their phones to take a picture. Everyone will want a ride. Only have 500 miles on it since the full build. If you want to pretty it all up, feel free – I like the rat-jeep look, but it’s different for everyone. Overall, in very good condition with way less rust than most FCs. All glass is good except driver door window has a crack (that window is always down waving back to the excited wrangler drivers anyway). Asking 22K OBO.

Modifications include:
– Small Block Chevy (making 400hp)
– Turbo 400 transmission
– Dana 70 in the rear
– Custom leaf springs from Alcan
– Completely new fuel system (tank, electric pump, carb, lines)
– Complete new cooling system to handle the SBC
– Transmission cooler
– Conversion to dual master brake cylinder
– All new brake lines
– Conversion to front disk brakes
– Conversion to power steering
– All new steering column for more comfortable positioning
– Steering damper in front to smooth out the ride
– 100% new wiring throughout
– LED brake lights
– Full array of Autometer Gauges including GPS speedometer
– All new 2.5” dual exhaust system with crossover and Flowmaster Super 70s.

Please feel free to ask any questions and I’ll be happy to get right back to you! This is an amazing jeep and the buyer will be thrilled with their new toy. If you’re in NJ and buying the jeep, you should be able to keep the amazing custom plates – these are this jeep’s actual license plates.

    A NJ Forward Control in great shape, hard to find in NJ, most are rusted out. Beach Haven is, if I remember correctly exit 82 on the Garden State Parkway. This time of year, not unusual to find bumper to bumper traffic.

    Where was this when I still lived in NJ? Very cool personalized license plate :-).
    Mike, exit 82 is Seaside Hts and Lakehurst. Beach Haven is Exit 63 (from Northern New Jersey – GSP south). Our granddaughters live between there in Bayville.

    Thanks Joe, I stand corrected, been a long time since I’ve been down to the Jersey shore, Memory fades in the sunshine over the years.
