1958 FC-170 Fire Engine Dinuba, Ca eBay

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677, Fire/Police/Industry Vehicles • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  Steve reports that this sold for $5600 with only two bids.

Jean-Sebastien spotted this unusual find.

“This is a Jeep FC 170 four wheel drive flat bed truck that has been made into a fire engine. This vehicle was originally used by the US forest service around Yosemite and later sold to a church camp just outside of the park. The vehicle was garaged and used by the church camp for insurance purposes. The vehicle is in extreemly good original condition. All equipment is stock except the windshield wiper motor which was changed to an electric model instead of the vacuum type. The vehcile runs strong and starts up promptly everytime. It has the 6 cylinder motor with a 3 speed manual transmission. Warren “free wheeling” hub caps to secure four wheel drive. The interior is in very good condition, as you can see by the pictures. The odometer shows 30,000 miles, but the speedometer cable broke so I can’t say what the actual mileage is. I would say not more than about 50,000 original miles. The fire apparatus has a 250 gallon tank with a 5 hp gas motor that both starts manually or with an electric push button starter. Pump works great and all seals seam to not leak. Vehicle comes with 200 feet of fire hose ( cotton single jacket), 150 of 1 1/2 and 50 ft of 1 inch. Two variable plastic nozzles with 1 1/2 fittings. There are two yellow helmets and a first aid kit. All gauges work (except the speedometer) and two new gauges were added for oil preasure and temperature. Body shows some signs on repair around the passenger door handle, but otherwise the vehicle is in good overall condition for the body. Vehicle runs fine and all mechanical parts work good. Brakes are in good condition as are tires, clutch and transmission. There is no slippage when shifting. This is a fairly rare vehicle and would be well suited for a ranch (for insurance purposes) or another church. Please e-mail any questions.”

1960 FC-150 Wilder Vt eBay

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: .

UPDATE:  This is back on eBay

(03/16/2010) Here’s a nice looking build with an engine and tranny update.  It still needs some interior work.

“Rare find, 1959 Jeep FC-150.  This is a stock appearing FC-150 that has the following modifications/improvements:
1. Chassis has been sandblasted and painted with POR15.

2. First engine was the wimpy 4 cylinder and I then changed it to a V6 Dauntless from a 1967 Jeepster after resealing and rebuilding all rotating components. Engine is fitted with headers and dual exhaust.

3. Transmission was changed from the 3 speed to a Turbo 400 automatic.  There is no evidence inside the cab that it is an automatic.  The shifter is the original and the pedals are all the same.  The Brake and the Clutch pedal have been joined.

4.  There is a new wiring harness and new instruments installed in crinkle finish dash.  The interior is without headliner cardboard and doors do not have cardboard panels installed.

5.  New windshield and rear glass, one door has new glass.

6.  All NEW springs, not rebuilt. New Shocks, new Brakes.  Front axle has disc brakes.

7.  Body has NEW cab corners, NEW floors.  The cab was plastic bead paint removed and spray weld to treat any traces of rust.  There are no bondo patches anywhere.

No stories, I have had it long enough and I dislike interior work so I never finished the interior.  It is quite powerful and runs like a bear.  I have never had it off road in 10 years.  My Son needs a car and my wife insists on airbags.  I have over $15k in this at this point but it is time for it to go. There is no title as Vermont does not title vehicles over 15 years old.  Sold on a bill of sale.”

1961 FC-170 Lake Wales, Fl **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

“This “Go-anywhere,” “Tough-job traction” truck is on the market here for the first time in over 20 years.  Originally purchased from a glass co. in OHIO by the current owner.   He has done a complete frame off restoration as you can plainly see in the photos. Introduced in 1957 the Jeep Willys FC-170 was wider and carried a heavier load than the FC-150.  It has a Kaiser 6-226 motor inline 6 that is good on gas.  You won’t get stuck with high/low option 4WD and LT235/85R16 tires.

The bed is made of appatong wood said to be 5 times harder than oak for those heavy loads.  The truck has a 7,000 lb. GVW, a 103″ wheelbase with a 108″ bed.  The Cab-over design is very unique. There were approximately 2,000 FC-170’s built in ’61.  You will be guaranteed to be the hit of the car shows…”

1961 FC-170 Dually Marysvale, Ut **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  This was bought for the ‘buy it now’ price of $8000.  Thanks Dennis!

(11/24/09) I like it, in part because it looks like it still gets used.  Marysvale is deep in the middle of Utah.  I’ve never been there, but I’ve been jeeping out of Mt. Pleasant above Marysville.  I’ve also flown over that area a number of times and scoped it out pretty well (you can see a variety of trails from above) with the idea that I’d go jeeping there at some point.  Also, the San Rafael Swell is a good area to explore also and is ignored by most tourists (or used to be).

“Willys Jeep FC-170. Dually flatbed. Purchased restored & used as light duty ranch truck. Stored inside. Still in nice condition. Has stock engine & transmission, 4wd. Was previously used as a parade vehicle but now carries a Lincoln welder (not included). Interior is all redone with blue velour seats. Runs & starts good in warm weather. It is not run in the winter. There are external exhaust pipes on each rear corner of the cab – sounds great too. This truck shows 80,000 miles but seller cannot guarantee actual milage.”
