“Custom 1958 Willys Jeep FC-170. Not a Comanche but did not offer FC so had to use this option. Built on a 1989 Shortened Chevrolet chassis. 350 Chevy small block with 700R4 transmission. Has AC. Not many of these old Jeeps left. Older custom truck so not perfect. Overall in good running condition just needs freshening up. Turns heads everywhere it goes. Only in person offers considered. Listing at 25k or first reasonable offer. Clear Texas title. Located in Elderville.”

    I have seen this truck here at the FC Roundup. This is a really nice finished, best truck award wining FC-170.
    It is unfortunate that it is being sold due to health reasons.

  2. Mike

    Interesting to see how over the decades, this FC has traveled cross country from one owner to another. Does this indicate an “Impulse buy” many times over, or just the times we are living in?
    The price does not reflect somebody flipping a vehicle just to make a quick buck, more like someone who realizes he no longer can afford these expensive toys.

  3. David Eilers

    Mike: I have been surprised it has been relisted multiple times. Unclear to me why.

    Craig: I ran across a brochure for some Koenig made running boards for FCs. I will post it at some point (unsure if the ones above are Koenig or not).
