The links to posts below show jeeps grouped by models, condition, and other ways. Some of these jeeps are for sale and others have been sold. If you are unsure whether a vehicle is still for sale or not, email me at d [at] ewillys.com for more info.
Importantly, the allure of buying a project jeep can be romantic. The reality of restoring a jeep can be quite different, expensive and overwhelming without the right tools and resources. So, tread carefully when purchasing a "project". If you have any concerns about buying a vintage jeep, or run across a scam, feel free to contact me for help, comments or concerns .
“I found this sitting in a field here locally in Enterprise very good shape for sitting outside for so long but is by no means a perfect 10 . This would be a good base for a restoration project or just a good all purpose work vehicle around the farm or ranch or whatever. I have got the unit sitting at a local shop where it is currently awaiting some repairs, work done so far rebuilt carb, fuel filter, oil change, new spark plugs, distributor repair, is awaiting front brake repair for they are alittle sticky. I have driven this but it will be a lot better when the brakes get repaired. It had some bad fuel in it and while most of it was drained it does run alittle rough but I feel as more good gasoline is added it will smooth out . It currently does not shift into third but am working to trace this problem out but it may not all get done by the time this auction is over. This jeep does put a smile on your face to drive just because its a great ol’ classic and you just do not see many of these that much anymore. I do have the title for it and it is clean.”
“Good luck trying to find another one like this. Even a project! RARE RARE RARE. This is the 170 model that has the larger 6 cylinder motor in it. Unlike the FC150, this will do 50 MPH and is a blast to drive.”

A very cool unusual jeep. 95% complete, original engine, trans, t-case, narrow track axles 81″ wheelbase, 74″ bed with tailgate. Sheet metal is very very good. almost no rust. All surface patina type rust. A great start for restoration. Does NOT run at the moment. Title in hand. $2000.00″
“This is a rare, 1958 FC150 narrow track. It is in very good condition, being 95% complete and original. Odometer reading indicates just under 8K original miles. Body is solid with a few minor dents. F-head engine had the head removed and replaced by previous owner, with reassembly about 80% complete, and as such it is not running. This is a great vehicle for someone looking to do an original restoration since the vehicle is so complete. Clean title in hand. Feel free to contact me with questions.”
“THIS FC170 HAS BEEN RESTORED AND LOOKS INCREDIBLE. IT HAS A BRAND NEW GREEN METALLIC PAINT JOB. THIS FORWARD CONTROL HAS A FULL 9 FOOT BED AND IS A ONE TON SO IT IS EXTREMELY RARE! THE RIMS HAVE BEEN POWDER COATED.
MECHANICALLY THE HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER SUPER HURRICANE 6 MOTOR RUNS GREAT AND IT IS ACCOMPANIED BY A T-98 FOUR SPEED AND TWO SPEED TRANSFER CASE. THIS TRUCK NOT ONLY LOOKS GREAT BUT IS DESIGNED FOR GREAT FUNCTIONALITY AND USE.
THE INTERIOR IS NEW AND IMMACULATE! IT INCLUDES NEW HEADLINER, SEATS AND DOOR PANELS ALL IN GRAY VINYL. IT ALSO HAS NEW CARPET. THE FACTORY GAUGE CLUSTER AND AN UNMOLESTED DASH FINISH OFF THE CLEAN LOOK.”
“We have a rare 1958 willys fc 170. Cosmetically a little rough. Runs and drives. Would make a great restore project. Has working auxiliary pto on transmission, options are endless. Great farm truck or hunting wagon. Bought with lost title so there is no title. Four wheel drive works. Located in Pagosa Springs Co.”
UPDATE: **SOLD* Was $1000. This one sold quickly! I considered this one for myself.
Looks like a good price. It runs.
“Great unique jeep project. 4cyl engine, 4×4.
Engine does run and it will drive although it has no brakes.
Cab is in decent shape, bed is rusty
come take a look and make me a offer.
I have to get this out of my yard.”
Yesterday I noticed an FC commercial making the rounds on Facebook, one I hadn’t previously seen. It turned out to be a shortened version that Brendan from the-old-jeep has posted back in 2010. I’m sure some others out there didn’t see it either. It’s a good one that starts with a comedy routine and then shows an FC-150 & 170 hard at working towing vehicles.
The tow package is not included. It’s a 170 not a 150.
“For sale or trade is a 1957 Willys Jeep FC150 Cab Forward pickup. The Transmission was taken out prior to my buying it, unknown why possibly clutch ??? Trans is in the back. I have not had this vehicle running. The windows are out, and I have them. Will accept best cash and or trade offer. Feel free to come see it, Clear Nevada title.
Note !!! The tow boom does NOT go with the sale. It will be pulled off prior to completion of this sale or trade.”
“This is a clean project truck that my dad has had for about 6 years. Clean Title and Current CA registration. He sourced it from J&W Jeep in Antelope CA and they in turn hunted it down in the high Northern deserts of Nevada. This truck is in amazing shape for its history and age. Was used for years at a small airstrip for fuel delivery. We have had it running and driving. A good once over on the fluids, charge the battery and she should come to life again. My dead owns 2 of these and realized that he doesn’t need 2. Brakes need some attention. Will assist with shipping and international buyers.”
UPDATE: Was on eBay for $17,000. **Status Unknown**
“1959 WILLYS JEEP 1387 PRODUCED , Approximately 87 left in existence. This rare beast runs and drives perfectly and needs nothing with the exception of minor body work. this would make a great museum piece or a really cool swamp buggy if your looking for something built that no one else has,or a great work horse. buyers responsibility to have it shipped but it can be driven. low opening bid, low reserve no reasonable offer refused.”
“1960 Jeep FC. I have no idea what I have. I have acquired this. It’s a 4×4. It hasn’t run since 2001. Asking $2900 or best offer or trade. I’ll trade up or down. have cash to go with it. Will trade (anything) for nice 4x4s, 4 wheelers, side by sides, car, trucks, bang bangs.. etc.”
