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!

1963 FC-170 Eden, UT **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.

Looks ready to roll.

“This 1963 Willys Jeep FC-170 is a strong running example of the companys medium wheelbase Forward Control model, This FC-170 is powered by a super reliable and ready for work and fun 226ci Super Hurricane motor.

It is rare to find these trucks in nice condition today as most were worked very hard and then cast aside. This FC-170 was expertly painted in the popular factory offered combination of red and cream. This example retains its proper tailgate markings and factory badging. Glass is in good condition as well, a big plus as good replacements are difficult to find. The side-mounted spare and un-incorporated tail lights complete the look.

Used primarily for fair weather weekend driving this truck looks just as it did when restored. The FC-170 model offered a nice compromise between looks and utility, as shorter 150s have less cargo space and longer 180 and 190s tend to look a bit stretched and ungainly.

Inside the cab things are nicely kept and almost entirely OEM. All gauges, lights and switches work as designed, including the interesting single digit scaled speedometer.

Power comes from a Continental Super Hurricane L-head straight six. Displacing 226 cubic inches and rated for about 110 HP and 190 lb. ft. at very low revs, this one starts easily, runs smoothly and offer excellent reliability. Power is distributed through a floor-shift 4-speed manual and hi/lo range transfer case, and all four tires are new.
This Unique Willys FC-170 amazingly comes with its original New Jersey Title. This is an outstanding opportunity to own a unique and highly sought after chapter in Jeep History.”

1958 & 1962 FC-170s Columbia Falls, MT **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $2950

Neither runs.

“I have 2 forward control FC 170 jeeps for sale. One is a 58 and the other is a 62. The 58 is missing the bed but otherwise they are both complete! They each have their rust issues as they all do but the 58 is by far the best body. They both still have the factory flathead 6 cylinders in them and 3 speed trans. It looks like neither one has ran for a long time and I don’t know the condition of the drivetrain. But they are pretty rare and collectable. They are sold on a bill of sale as I have no titles. 3,750.00 for both. ”
