“Selling my 59 Jeep that I wanted to build just because you don’t see these anymore if ever! The odometer shows 42,360 which is probably correct for this type of truck. It looks to have a buick 6 cylinder in it out of a late 70’s or early 80’s car with a turbo 350 4×4 tranny. The front driveshaft is in it and the back is in the bed but the transfer case is missing should be able to find a chevy transfercase for 150 bucks not a hard or expensive item to find. This jeep has been sitting up and I have not tried to mess with it so it does not run which I figured whoever buys it would rebuild it or do a jeep motor which I have a cj5 with the motor and everything in it that I might would sell cheap if you need it just call me.

1958 FC-170 and Parts Bellingham, WA $1800

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Jeff’s got a project FC and several other things for sale.

“Selling my ’58 Forward Control FC-170 and parts collection. The truck has a 292 Chevy 6 in it, runs and drives – barely. It wasn’t a bad runner before the wiring shorted out. It has a NOS carb and a Warn overdrive. Comes with a bunch of parts including a nice windshield, one side glass and a drivers door. Asking $1800

Also have another very nice rust free 9′ bed with fenders and all the other bits. Asking $1200
Last but not least I have a rare Forward Control T-98 4 speed with shifter, spacer – all the parts to install it except the main drive gear, I was going to put the overdrive in it. Herm the overdrive guy rebuilt it along with the transfer case and it’s hasn’t been installed. He didn’t much like the condition of the gear cluster so had to source a donor T-98 for those parts and it ended up costing me $1400 I even have the dog house cover with the 4 seed shift pattern plate on it. Asking $1600

I will take $4000 for the whole lot if someone will take it all.
There are more parts than shown in the photos, an original engine, another fuel tank, seats, wheels and tires, axles….. More photos available upon”

Year? FC-170 Beaver, PA $1100

Parts FC.

“Complete frame and drivetrain from a Willys Jeep FC170. This frame is immaculate. If you are restoring an FC170 that needs frame work, save yourself the trouble and just swap your body over to this one. While I have no way to verify, the drivetrain is reported to have only 30,000 miles; it at a minimum at least looks the part of a 30,000 mile unit. As the story goes, this Jeep was bought new, brought home and shortly afterwards, a tree fell on the cab. The owner decided to cut the cab away and use it on his farm as a tractor which means nothing from the road has had a chance to eat away at it. Look at the pictures carefully, the condition is truly excellent. The motor has been stored properly and should fire with relative ease. Please note that this frame has no title and I do not know the exact year”

2017-03-24-fc-roundup2

Jason’s tour jeep parked in front of the Grand Canyon University Restaurant

Our travels southward were finally rewarded yesterday with a gloriously beautiful, cloudless sky with temperatures in the high 70s. It was a perfect day for traveling from Kingman to Phoenix.

Our trip from Kingman to Phoenix with a stop in Wickenburg.

Our trip from Kingman to Phoenix with a stop in Wickenburg.

Of all the routes we’ve taken on our drives to Phoenix, one of the most obvious, Highway 93, we’d yet to undertake. I thought it would be a flat, dry, dusty drive, but it turned out to be filled with rolling hills of sage, cactus, and (due to the time of year) colorful flowers.

Our one stop of the day was in Wickenburg. I did zero research on the town, instead letting serendipity guide us. By following the signs, we quickly found ourselves in old town, a delightful place with a cowboy vibe its citizens embrace.

2017-03-24-wickenburg

An example of the western theme seen around town.

One of the first things we saw we mistook, at first, for a homeless man perched on the ground. Unsure if he was real or not, we made our way over to what was soon obviously a sculpture. It turns out that due to a lack of funds, Wickenburg didn’t have a jail during its early years, so anyone needing a jail cell found themselves chained to a tree until their sentence was complete.

2017-03-24-wickenburg3 2017-03-24-wickenburg4

There was even a audio presentation, which provided some great background on the “Jail Tree”. It’s a nicely done work.

Next we walked a block to a second sculpture that celebrated an upstanding Wickenburg citizen named Everett Bowman and recognized his mule training prowess, among other accomplishments.

2017-03-24-wickenburg2

With Ann slow going, we decided to skip exploring town and instead check out the downtown museum, a well regarded (on Yelp) place called the Desert Caballeros Western Museum.

The museum was $12, but active military get in free (the Air Force will never fully release her). That’s a price we could work with. Inside, there was the usual western history showing pioneer history. The two photos below were from this collection: http://www.boydranch.org/western-museum/

Museum-Street-Scene-with-Wagon_small

Ranch-View-Master-Shot_small

Naturally, of all the things that caught my eye, the mining section drew me in the most. One sign really interested me. It claimed that in 1871 a US House of Representatives report noted that Wickenburg was “the Most Important District in Arizona”.

1870-report-pg-257-wickenburg2

When I saw the date, I guessed right away who wrote that phrase: my great great grandfather Anton Eilers. Because of my research on SLAG, I knew he’d been in Arizona in 1870 and published his findings in the Spring of 1871. This called for some research ….

When I returned to our hotel yesterday evening I pulled up the report he and Rossiter Raymond produced for 1870. On page 259 the first sentence jumped out:

1870-report-pg-257-wickenburg

It was very satisfying to be able to identify Anton’s handiwork. Anton later mentioned that while the mine proved important in comparison with the rest of Arizona, the territory wasn’t producing all that much gold. Conflicts with the Apaches coupled with a lack of water and no railroad retarded the development of mining in Arizona for years…..

The Desert Caballeros proved to be an interesting museum. And, I bet on a hot day, it’s a wonderfully cool retreat for a few hours. If you are nearby, check it out sometime.

With the museum completed, we ate lunch and drove to Phoenix. We soon arrived at Jesse and Andrea’s house, where we caught up with everyone. Later, we headed out to dinner at the Grand Canyon University Restaurant in a train of FCs. It was quite a site to see the FCs parked in the circle near the main doors:

IMG_2797

That’s it for this report. Tomorrow I’ll have many more pics of the FCs.
