1957 FC-150 Jefferson County, Tx $10,000

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

This looks nice.

“FC-series trucks were produced through 1964, but never in large quantities, so that makes this baby a collectors item. More importantly it’s so FUN to drive!!! She looks great and runs even better!!!!!!!

The Jeep Forward Control (FC) is a truck that was produced by Willy’s and then Kaiser Jeep from 1956 to 1965. The design of the truck is also called a cab forward or better known as a cabover or COE for “cab over engine”.

This truck is easy to drive, feels safe and secure and the cab-forward design gives the driver great visibility and excellent maneuverability. They are very rare, very collectible vehicles……and this is a very rare opportunity……don’t miss out!!! E-mail me today!

benbev77619@gmail.com.  I am asking $10k OBO. I also have video footage of it running for those who want to see it.”

Civil Defense FC-150

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

I accidentally wandered across these unusual photos from the Timberlane’s thoughts blog.  I’ve never seen a Civil Defense FC. Maybe someone out there knows more about it?  I *think* this is in California, based on the front license plate.  I have lightened all four shots.  You can see the originals in the original post at the website.

1959 FC-170 Orange County, Ca $8500

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

According to the seller, that is the original paint.

“For sale is a original and rare 1959 FC170 with the 9 foot bed option. Original paint, never been repainted. Two previous owners, complete and fully documented ownership history, including the original dealership bill of sale. Everything works. Everything on the Jeep is original, the interior is complete, seat upholstery is original, the running gear is refurbished and works as it should, including the engine, the 3 speed manual, the transfer-case, 4 wheel drive, axles, diffs, all in good running condition. Rebuild gas tank and rebuild the sending unit. This Jeep drives real nice, and everything works, the heater, all the electrical, the turn signals, lights. Complete with original headliner, original door panels, original sun visors, and a few rare items like a vinyl cigarette box holder attached to the visor. The stencil “Jeep” and “4 Wheel Drive” insignias on the tailgate are original. The tires are original old stock, most likely the second set, dating early 60′s. A true survivor, this Jeep spent 90% of her life in one family, who owned a RV business in a small town in Washington State. The Jeep was mostly used to plow occasional snow on the RV lot, otherwise the Jeep parked in the dry. The body is completely stock and original, no accidents, no rust with the exception of pitting and surface rust on rear fender flares and surface rust on the bed floor. Because it is so original I never had plans to repaint or frame-off restore this Jeep, I always loved the original condition it is in. I just made everything work properly, with the goal to avoid any modern upgrades or parts replacements that are not era correct. This Jeep drives real nice, it breaks properly, shifts nicely and the engine sounds very healthy. This FC170 is a true survivor. Your chance to own a piece of Jeep history. Original West Coast Jeep all her life! The snow plow mechanism works, but I do not have the plow blade. This FC170 is incredible. West Coast Jeep all her life, documented ownership history, I am the 3rd owner. I even have the original dealership bill of sale from 1959! Original paint!!!!! Surface rust on bed, fenders, but NO critical rust in all the common areas!”

1959 FC-170 Jaffery, Nh eBay

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

This was formerly a Fire FC.

“This ’59 has a rare cab with 16,900 original miles. Was originally a fire truck, was disassembled and kept in a barn for years.  Previous owner sandblasted frame and undercarriage which is in excellent condition.  265 engine was completely rebuilt and a very rare 4-speed transmission was added.  A steel dump body with dual pistons was custom made. Dump works perfectly.  Chrome dual pipes were added for charm and a great sound. Truck goes like crazy!  What it needs:  a bumper, needs wipers connected, and the heater hose needs connecting.  It won’t take much to finish it off!  I don’t have the time or energy to do it myself.  Call if you have a question – 603-532-7645 or email.  Paypal or certified bank check”

Pics from the 2nd Annual Northwest FC Get Together

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

The 2nd Annual Northwest FC Get Together was this past weekend in Olympia.  Josue was kind enough to forward some images from the event and give his take on it.

Josue writes, “Last weekend was the first opportunity I have had to visit a Jeep get-together. It wasn’t a huge turnout but it was definitely worth visiting. The meet-up was in Olympia, WA and it was specifically for Forward Control Jeeps. This was the second year and only about 8 showed up, although I’m sure it will get bigger with time. It was fun talking to a few people and seeing a couple of them run.”  Thanks Josue!

Brett spotted this solid FC-170.

“1962 Jeep FC-170. This is a bone stock truck with the exception of the wheels and tires. Has had alot of work done to bring it back from the dead, runs and drives as well as an old jeep would. 226 Super Hurricane flathead 6 engine, T90 3 speed trans, T18 Transfer case. Since owning this I have cleaned and flushed the fuel system, rebuilt carb, rebuilt the rear brakes with all new parts, including new model backing plates to be able to move the E-brake to the wheels instead of the drum behind the transfer case. Brake is still on transfer case, this was done for later powertrain upgrade. Read diff has had the posi unit rebuilt with OEM clutches, and new axle bearings. Front wheel cylinders are replaced and a new master cylinder. New water pump and clutch. I hate to let this go, I was looking forward to putting in a modern powertain and having a completely unique truck to use, but priorities have changed.”

“Wow…..here’s a very rare and very unique piece of American Automotive History!!!! 1957 Jeep FC-150 4×4 Pickup. This gem is a well-preserved, 2-owner, ultra-low-mile vehicle fresh out of a private collection, available here to the general public for the first time since in was new!!!  The original owner of more than 50 years lived in a remote area of the Northwest and owned 2 vehicles……..an air-conditioned Cadillac and, you guessed it, this 1957 Jeep Pickup that he special-ordered and bought brand new. One vehicle he used for his weekly commute to town in the summer, the other, in winter. The Jeep lived a privileged life, clocking just a tad over 13K original miles on the odometer!!!!!! The truck has been regularly maintained over its entire life, and looks, runs and drives great. The Hurricane 4-cylinder motor starts easy and runs like a watch. It is easy to drive, feels safe and secure and the cab-forward design gives the driver great visibility and excellent maneuverability.

1960 FC-150 Dublin, Ca **SOLD**

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

UPDATE:  Price dropped to $2750 … it appears this was SOLD

“This little sucker is COOL, with a capital K! This is a running registered and stopping Willys Jeep FC-150. Rare little gem that she is, she is the last car I want to sell of the many cars I will be selling to meet this months mortgage, so the price is more than I think it would probably sell for locally unless it went on ebay, but I really dont want to sell it. It does have bad rear cab sorners, and some rust in the floor of the bed, and some at the flat floor areas and door corners etc, but overall is really really cool. I wouldn’t do a dan g thing to her except tinker and drive. She is a blast to drive around town, though she isnt super fast do to really low gears , and the anemic 134? 4 banger. Shoot me offers, but keep in mind I really want to keep it, so I am going to try an sell the others cars cheap first. Willy’s or Willys works also.”
