Local writer William Drury poked fun at the Kaisers for their pink obsession in this May 31, 1961, column in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin:

======================

Originally Published December 24, 2016: In 1958, Henry Kaiser gave his wife Ale a pink FC-170 for Christmas. I tried to find some additional information or photos, but didn’t have any luck.

None of them run.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/573576530271949

“For sale are 3 1959 Jeep FC170’s. All flatbed configuration. 2 vehicles are complete, the third is currently off frame as a restoration project. 2 titles are currently in hand, we are working on retrieving the third. Overall condition of the 3 is fair. Will need some TLC to get the 2 complete units to get running, they have been sitting for quite a few years. They were collected with the intension of full restorations, and as such, there are several new parts and additions available with the purchase of the vehicles. Figuring $9000 for the lot of parts and the 3 vehicles.”

FC-150 Bed West Point, NE $399

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

No pics provided.

https://omaha.craigslist.org/pts/d/beemer-jeep-fc-150-bed/7328848347.html

“I bought this FC bed out in western Nebraska with the intent of using it behind a cj10 cab.
That project changed hands and directions several times, and now I have an FC bed with no home for it.

I do consider chopping it to make it a different size for some other Jeep based pickup project.

But if someone needs it for an actual FC, that would be best.

It’s not pristine, so modifying it wouldn’t be a huge sin. But it’s solid enough that a real enthusiast might want or need it. Not many folks can say they’ve ever owned any forward control Jeep parts at all, so maybe you want it for bragging rights or to build a trailer for your flatfender.

I paid 500 several years ago, so I guess we can start there. Just my luck it’ll be worth 3000 and I still let it go for 500…”

Highways Across the Horizon by Dorothy Rogers

• CATEGORIES: Books, FC150-FC170-M677, Features, Women & Jeeps

UPDATE: This ad published in the Los Angeles Times, June 15, 1962, by the Alaskan Camper Factory, welcomed Dorothy and Louise back into the United States after their trip around the world in an FC-170 (with an Alaskan camper, of course).

1962-06-15-losangeles-times-rogers-ostberg-alaskan-camper-ad-lores

===================

Originally Published October 06, 2021: Highways Across the Horizon was written by Dorothy Rogers, who previous wrote Jeopardy in the Jeep.  I received a copy of it in the mail last week.  I knew the book was about traveling through Asia, but there were two things I didn’t know.  The first think I learned was that she and her travel partner Louise, traveled all the way around the world, starting and ending in New York.  The second surprise was their vehicle of choice:  a FC-170 with a camper.   Craig confirmed today that Dorothy and Louise piloted only the third known FC to make it around the world.  I can’t wait to read about their adventure.

Here are FC related pics:

“Hello Everyone. I’m posting my 57 Jeep FC for sale. I have way to many projects going on so I’m thinning the garage out. I really hate to sell it but it is neccessary and would really like it to go to a good home. I purchased it about a year ago or so. As you can tell it’s been out in the elements and has been treated pretty roughly unnecessarily. She is very rough but is at least a foundation for a build. I really liked what roam auto did with there FC. If you have a way with metal it is possible to fix the cab and even swap it to another frame. Here are the basics: 1957 Jeep FC 170 226 hurricane inline 6 No title! Bill of sale only. 6ft wide, bumper to bumper 15ft Let the pictures be the best description!”

“It was a barn find and I am in way over my head and do not have the time or space for this project. Supposedly it ran and was driven to where it was parked in a shop and sat there since 2004. The engine does turn over but I do not want to actually try and start it with out flushing the tank and lines. I don’t know much about it except for it’s rare and it’s a Jeep. No major rust. Floors are still intact. It’s needs lots of love but is very solid. I just do not have time for it.

Offers are being entertained until Saturday the 15th. Current bids are up to $7,000. No low ballers or tire kickers. Serious buyers only.

“This 1957 Willys Jeep Forward Control FC-150 was purchased in 1982 by the seller’s uncle and was acquired by the seller approximately six years ago. Power comes from a 134ci Hurricane inline-four paired with a three-speed manual transmission and a two-speed transfer case, and the truck is finished in green and white over a green vinyl interior. Equipment includes locking front hubs along with a shovel, axe, and spare mounted to the side of the bed. Work performed under current ownership has consisted of a refresh of the brakes and carburetor, as well as a 12-volt electrical conversion and replacement of the tires and shocks. This FC-150 is now being offered at no reserve with an uninstalled replacement exhaust system and door panels, manufacturer’s literature, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.”
