“This 1963 Willys Jeep FC-170 is a strong running example of the companys medium wheelbase Forward Control model, This FC-170 is powered by a super reliable and ready for work and fun 226ci Super Hurricane motor.
It is rare to find these trucks in nice condition today as most were worked very hard and then cast aside. This FC-170 was expertly painted in the popular factory offered combination of red and cream. This example retains its proper tailgate markings and factory badging. Glass is in good condition as well, a big plus as good replacements are difficult to find. The side-mounted spare and un-incorporated tail lights complete the look.
Used primarily for fair weather weekend driving this truck looks just as it did when restored. The FC-170 model offered a nice compromise between looks and utility, as shorter 150s have less cargo space and longer 180 and 190s tend to look a bit stretched and ungainly.
Inside the cab things are nicely kept and almost entirely OEM. All gauges, lights and switches work as designed, including the interesting single digit scaled speedometer.
Power comes from a Continental Super Hurricane L-head straight six. Displacing 226 cubic inches and rated for about 110 HP and 190 lb. ft. at very low revs, this one starts easily, runs smoothly and offer excellent reliability. Power is distributed through a floor-shift 4-speed manual and hi/lo range transfer case, and all four tires are new.
This Unique Willys FC-170 amazingly comes with its original New Jersey Title. This is an outstanding opportunity to own a unique and highly sought after chapter in Jeep History.”
**SOLD** Was $6500.
“$6500 obo/possible trade. It includes two power inverters. Three Brand New Batteries and Chargers. Two New Freezers. 25 foot Flag pole that is retractable. Custom battery station. I have also recently paid a local garage $3600 to rewire and add all new electrical to the vehicle with Hi Amp Alternator and New Starter. Needless to say, it has a lot that has been done. It is a 1974 FJ-8C and very fun to drive.”
Buz was exploring SEMA today and happened upon this built FC. This jeep is part of the “Battle of the Builders”. Buz sent the description written by the builder.
“1958 Restomod Jeep. In the words of Mark Turner, CEO of Daystar Products International, “This vehicle was built to be driven.” To date, Turner’s classic cab forward 58 jeep has many trips including one down to the southernmost point int he United States, Key West Florida. The jeep is built to embrace both hot rodding and off-roading with specific parts that can handle both responsibilities. Under the hood is a late-model 5.7 liter Hemi engine which supplies power to a transmission and transfercase, suitable for on and off road use. The jeep also features 17-inch vintage wheels wrapped in interco tires. Inside, modern amenities such as air condition, leather seating, and cruise control help define the jeep as a dual purpose specialist.”
Has some updates. Looks solid.
“Body work completed, drive train complete with 4 x 4 locking hubs. Dump body, wiring complete. Price as stated or BRO. Reason for selling: relocating. Will discuss transportation.”

That’s a pretty FC.
“Finished in the optional President Red and Plantation White combination this all steel body pickup shows very well. The side mounted spare tire matches the other four wheels and tires. The front fender extensions and rear fenders are solid and look great. All the trim is present, complete, and displays normal wear for a vehicle of this age. The black front bumper is fits well with a finish as expected considering the age. The custom rear step bumper is sturdy and is functional. The metal bed and wheel wells is completely covered with a black protective paint.
Inside, the grey and black vinyl seat that looks period and is very good condition. The black door panels and grey dashboard are a subtle continuation of the two-tone theme of the interior. The optional heater and original gauges are correctly placed have a nice appearance and function as designed. The original equipped two spoke custom steering wheel is in good condition and functions as designed.
This 1958 FC-150 is equipped with the original 134cid Hurricane F4-134 inline 4-cylinder engine fed by a Carter one barrel carburetor. Power is transferred to the wheels by a Borg-Warner T-98 three-speed manual transmission and a Model 18 transfer case. Driver assist features include 4-wheel drum brakes. The suspension includes leaf springs with front and rear solid axles. The 15-inch original white steel wheels with Goodyear Wrangler tires complete the look.
The FC-150 advertising motto in the day was “Go Anywhere!” and all your need to do is bring this ’58 to the next “Jamboree” and turn heads! GET OUT AND DRIVE!
Current mileage on the odometer shows 11,595 miles, sold as is with a mileage exempt title.
Looks like a good rebuild.

(07/07/2015) This looks to be a good price. It’s an Ansul Model Dry Chemical Fire Truck serial #320. The FC serial number is 61568 19861.
“1961 Jeep Forward Control (FC-170) 4WD. 6192 miles on speedometer. It used to be a chemical fire truck in Cold Bay, Alaska. It now has a flat bed on the back. Much work has been done on this truck to make it a reliable vehicle for running errands. It would not keep up with traffic out on the highway (top speed might be 50 without an overdrive). It has a 226 CI Continental engine, 3 speed manual transmission, two speed transfer case, 5.38 differentials, locking hubs. This would make a great rig for hunting. It definitely gets a lot of attention wherever it goes. There is some minor rust-through at the bottom of the driver’s door. Both doors shut easily; windows crank up and down easily; all glass is good. I am asking for $7,000. I will not accept lower offers or trades.”
UPDATE: Was on eBay. **Status Unknown**
Seller says this is unrestored. Looks like a reasonable buy-it-now price to me.

This is an non restored driver quality vehicle that’s rust free and a blast to drive. The all steel body is straight and very presentable. The older paint finish is decent and only showing a few cosmetic nicks and minor blemishes. The glass, tires and wheels are in good condition. The underside is also very solid. The frame and all around structure are sound. The rear wooden bed could be redone if desired. Beginning to show considerable wear especially behind the cab. The rear bumper is constructed on wood. Obviously replaced some years ago.
