1963 FC-150 Tavares, FL eBay

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

It does not run.

“This is a late model FC150, with the improved cooling, and wider axles. Truck is from Montana and has very little rust. Look at pictures of frame, inner fenders, gutters, etc This is an ideal candidate for restoration – best year, solid body, and very complete. This FC is not rust free, as it does have the typical rust through although small on floor boards and behind inner wheel wells where water collected. Overall – this one is better than 90% of those available.; The engine does not run, nor have I tried to fire.; Body issues include multiple dents and some tears in the rear fenders, the roof is dented in, and the pass door skin is peeled back where it meets the A pillar. I purchased this truck in Montana 2 years ago with the intent tu restore but it has been bumped by a Super Wagoneer.”

2017 Southwest Ohio FC Gathering July 14-16

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

2016-sw-ohio-gathering-the-group

Roger Martin will be hosting his 3rd Annual Southwest Ohio FC Gathering on July 14-16 this year.

He writes, “This is a personal invitation to a Jeep “FC only” event in the “Midwest.” We hope to see all FC owners and friends of Jeep Forward Controls and Jeep Fleet Vans in July. Come with or without your Jeep Forward Control or Fleet Vans. See these rare vehicles, talk about your project, and meet other collectors.

There’s plenty of room for trucks, trailers, RV’s (no RV hook-ups), primitive camping, and even semi-trucks. An RV park that, also, has cabins is 1 ½ miles away. Waynesville (6 miles south) is the Antique Capital of the Midwest and there is a motel there. Xenia (10 miles north) has three motels. I live 25 miles southeast of Dayton, OH. Dayton International Airport is about 45 minutes away. Watch for updates and comments.”

Hop Town Pizza is Opening A Restaurant

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677, Features

In 2014, Ann ran into two women who operated a mobile wood fired pizza truck called Hoptown Pizza. The two, Carrie Wright and Lori Roy, didn’t know much about their funky little truck, so Ann explained to them that it was an FC-150 and that there was a whole network of folks who owned FCs.

In 2015, Mark Smith published an article about them: http://jeeptruckstories.blogspot.com/2015/02/hopping-along-in-fc-dream.html

This winter, the pair plan to open up a rustic wood fired restaurant about a 50 minute drive west of us near Yakima, Washington. As part of their efforts, they are running a kick starter campaign. You can learn more and watch their video  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/308695668/help-us-grow-from-food-truck-to-rustic-wood-fired or visit their website here: http://www.hoptownpizza.com. We plan to contribute and visit their place as soon as it opens. Go Hoptown!
