This has potential.
“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.”

“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.”

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1000.
Looks like it has a tow package on the back. Some good parts value if nothing else.
“1969 FC150 Jeep with winch. Mechanics Special.”
Both are projects.
“I have two Willys FC170’s for sale. I would also consider trading even for a J series pickup truck or a toyota 4×4 truck. I have 3 of these forward controls and I have come to realize I will never fix up all 3 of them. I am keeping the one I have the most money and time in and letting the other 2 go. They are projects and I have not messed with either of them or tried to get them running. They are both fairly complete with enough to make one complete truck if you combined the two easily. The orange truck is in really nice shape body wise (if I had got it first I would have used it as it is worlds better than what I am working with). The green truck has some body damage but its not very rusty either. Both are flathead 6 with the t90 three speeds and dana18 transfer cases. Green one is 1959 and Orange is a 1960.”
UPDATE: Was $2400. **SOLD**
(10/03/2014) It’s a project.
“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.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $7500.
This Fire truck looks to be Jim Dobson’s FC. In the newest ad, there have been firetrucks from Dobson’s Antique Toy and Firehouse Museum that are now for sale. You might have remembered our visit to the museum in 2013.

Looks ready to roll (as in drive, not roll over — poor word choice).
“Must see many updates 1 of a kind”
Includes a PTO, dump bed and 4speed trans. Might be some value here.

Roger Martin is hosting an FC Gathering and Swap Meet July 24-26, 2015, in Waynesville, Ohio. Ann and I had a very nice time with Roger at his place in 2013. He’s got plenty of space in a quiet area with lots to see.
Roger’s FC-150 Flatbed
2015 Jeep FC Meet, Waynesville, OH 45068
Gathering & Swap Meet: July 24 – 26
Contact: Roger Martin, 937-477-5270, email@example.com
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 Van. 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 (hook-ups) with cabins, & campground is 1 ½ miles away. Waynesville (6 miles south ), Antique Capital of the Midwest, has a motel. Xenia (10 miles north) has three motels. I live 25 miles southeast of Dayton, Ohio. The Dayton International Airport is about 45 minutes away.
Watch for updates and comments on The Forward Forum.
Roger and I check out one of his DRW projects back in 2013.

MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer a very rarely seen, very unique 1963 Jeep FC150 Cab Over Engine. FC150 stands for “Forward Control,” which is often referred to as a “cab-over” and the model used a slightly wider chassis and wheelbase of the CJ-5. This particular example is equipped with an upgraded V6 engine, 4×4 and was totally restored in the recent past and looks absolutely wonderful! This Jeep almost looks quirky and is sure to demand attention anywhere it may go!
The body of this neat, little truck is in great shape while being very sound. The truck has a large stake-bed, complete with a “wood” floor that looks great. The body is painted with a bright red paint that looks awesome. The paint shows very well, showing only minor imperfections. There is a little bit of chrome on the truck and it all shines brilliantly! Overall, this is an awesome truck capable of driving on the streets or tearing up some logging trail or power line backwoods!
Ran last summer.
“Truck needs restoration, pictures show the details. Needs body work. Ran last summer, but have not tried to start it since. Mileage unknown”

“I am selling my 59 FC150. It is fully restored with less than 200 miles on it. It is a dump body. I spent almost. 3 years building it.”
Craig forwarded this article from jpfreek.com that highlights the top fifteen jeeps at SEMA this year. Taking best jeep was the FC-170 with tracks and a hemi engine.
UPDATE: Still Available.
“Has been sitting,not running, rusty,in need of restoration.

Would need to be towed.
Call text or email”
Runs and drives.
“For sale is a 1961 Jeep Willys FC 170. The truck runs and drives just fine. It was used as cabin truck the last 20 years or so. The truck starts perfect and shifts and drives good. Drivers door has fallen off but I still have it. Still have the title. Would be an awesome project.”
UPDATE: Was $6000. **SOLD**
(09/19/2014) Runs and drives with an updated motor.
“Am selling my 1960 Willys Jeep FC150 Forward control truck. Is an awesome condition truck for It’s age. These trucks are super cool and hard to find. Would be an easy restoration or drive it as is. Runs and drives well. Good windshield. 3 speed trans works well. Transfercase works properly. Has Dana 44 axles in both ends from the factory. Factory installed 11 inch brakes. Engine is a 153 Chevy 4 cylinder. Runs good with no issues. Is super fun to drive and will attract attention wherever it goes. Clean Colorado title. “
UPDATE: **SOLD** For $3950 on eBay.
This ex-American Legion FC sports a rear PTO. It does need some work.
“Here’s a very hard to find FC-150. Used as a parade vehicle by the American Legion years ago. It was towed from event to event and the tow bar comes with it for easy pick up. Very cool looking paint job. Hurricane 4 cylinder engine. Comes with white spoke wheels and original rims with tires. PTO in rear! The photos show the condition of the FC-150. Having owned a couple of these it’s hard to find one with such a clean undercarriage. It’s been off the road for several years so it will need some work to be driver.
Good looking FC.
“Body off frame restoration.
Rebuilt engine and drive train.
Fresh Red and White Paint interior and exterior.
New handcrafted shiny wood sideboards and bed.
New upholstery and foam.
New glass .
New tires and shocks.
Always stored inside.
Your 4WD for go in the snow this winter. Great parade vehicle. Load the family in the back.”
MIght be some value here.
“This is what I believe to be a 1958 Forward Control Jeep 150 4×4. I am not sure of the exact year. These are super rare antique forward control jeeps. This vehicle is complete, but in poor condition. The engine (hurricane 4 cylinder) turns over and the transmission shifts through the gears. I have not tried to start it. I am selling this vehicle for parts or restoration. The pictures describe it better than my words can.
I am asking $899 or best offer. If you are interested, please email me and we can setup an appointment to view it. The jeep is located in Glens Falls and we can help to transport for a nominal fee.”
Craig posted this photo from Alaska to the FC Forum that shows an FC trapped among some trees … or perhaps encouraging their growth.
