I took a look at this. I can send some other pics (Ann took them, but she’s busy at the moment so I can’t add them). If you have questions, drop me an email or contact Frank (see info below).
Frank and I tried to start it, but it didn’t start. It turned over strong and I verified a spark. It was getting gas, so I suspected it was flooded (and it was very cold outside). After I left Frank told me he was able to start it. It has a four speed and comes with an extra four speed (unsure of condition).
The front floors have a few holes as seen in the pic below (passenger side). I did not find any holes in the back rear corners.
Frank told me his brother had several jeeps. He may have assembled this DRW out of some of those parts or it may have been assembled by the previous. The issue is the serial number of 61568 23017, which, as I understand it, is a for an FC-170 rather than a Dually. Were FC-170s converted at the factory? I didn’t check for serial numbers and didn’t learn about the serial number issue until after I left.
From original ad: This FC is being sold by Frank King. The jeep runs and drives, but does need a spray of starter fluid to get going. The owner fixed up the exterior, but didn’t touch the interior. It includes an FC-170 bed that wouldn’t have been original to the dually. You can contact Frank at 509 999 6544 or email him at Frankckingatty@aol.com.
In the photo below there appear to be other jeep parts besides the bed.
Engine runs, but tank needs cleaning.
“This is not a j20 but a Jeep FC 170 cabover 3/4 ton pickup. Pretty much original, has an oversized fuel tank mounted in original location. The tank needs to be cleaned. Engine runs good from aux fuel source. odometer shows under 20,000 mi. Seats are at upholsterer to be covered in red fabric. Very little rust.
the pickup has not been driven in a long time, perhaps decades. No text or email, please , I cannot respond. ”
“FC-170 DRW in need of restoration. This truck is all original, it’s mostly complete, but the motor is currently disassembled. It has it’s original 6-cylinder 226 Super Hurricane. This has the T-98 4-speed transmission and a dual-cylinder hydraulic dump bed. It is 4×4 and has a PTO off the trans to drive the pump. It rolls, but doesn’t stop or drive. You will need a trailer. I’ve got too many other projects going and won’t ever get to this one. I have the title. ”
