Year? FC-170 Paw Paw, WV ***sold***

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE: ***sold*** was listed at $300.  It sold quickly.

This ran just fine when the seller parked in eight years ago.  It looks like a great price a parts FC.  Unclear why the name “Patricia Cardran” is included in the picture.

“they made to models of these the FC-150 and FC-170 not real sure witch one it is. It is 4×4 and it will go anywhere when locked in. it has manual trans, 6cly flathead, we used it for hauling fire wood and it’ll hold around 2 cords of firewood. it has a large wooden bed on it that the boards are gonna need replaced. It will need work it would be a great restore project cause the parts are pretty cheap, last time I looked at a rebuild kit for the motor it was around 150.00. it ran just fine when I parked it about 8 years ago. I do have the title for it also if you have any question call or text me at 240-522-two87one NO EMAILS”

To me this looks pretty restorable.  I do wish Forster-Stewart Lumber had developed a nicer logo though. It does not have a title.

“Up for auction is a vintage 1960 or 1961 Jeep Foward Control stake bed. The vehicle starts and runs. It yard drives. As it sits it has the following problems.

2 Modified M-667s Phoenix, AZ SCAM

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

UPDATE 2:  We are certain this was a scam.  Contrary to what the ‘seller’ reports, no LoJack activation has never occurred on a Willys in AZ.

UPDATE:  Thanks to Craig for managing to get a response.  The seller claims these are sold.  And, thanks especially to Jesse for his detailed analysis on this.  In between tearing down my parent’s rotten deck and getting ready to build a new one I’ve been following the comments on this ad/scam/?? with interest.

“I have two modernized like new except for paint m677 FC Kaiser Jeeps with 4 door crew cabs, full skid plates, new motors, new drive train, or professionally rebuilt. Modern features like PS, PB, AC, locker Eaton Rear end. One is Gasoline powered Chevrolet LT-1 350 the other is a 6 cyl heavy duty diesel. To much to mention. $65,000 takes both and plenty of original parts. I had the custom paint jobs blasted off when the company who contracted their build at a cost of over $100,000 defaulted and we repo’ed these.. Both have new interior, AC, 24 12 and 120 volt power. Both have heavy duty winches, and one comes with a PTO winch and hydrostatic plow drive als all hoses drive lines etc. They run and drive great. Suspension is all new and engineered for the load of the new running gear. Running gear was regeared to maximize the HP torque and RPMs of the power plant(s). Paint is all these lack. They are in a climate controlled storage. Look up this model on Google. These are primer gray and all they need is a final paint job. These are rare, and unheard of in this condition. Email for a viewing time and location, as well as questions and a an extensive list of original spare parts, engines, transfer cases, glass, etc. One mor could be made original from spare frame body parts engine X fer case front and rear end etc. Zero rust. Interiors are new Taurus Burgundy colored vinyl seats. New tires, new heavy duty brakes. These cost almost $130K to build. They were meant to service cell towers in remote locations. The buyer skipped town. They had LOJACK and I went and got them back. Too many upgrades and options to list. The gasoline model is more of a toy as the engine is high compression high horsepower. They have dual 24 and 12 volt electrical, all new rubber body gaskets, no leaks. They are in line in a storage unit, and photos will be difficult. After I take them out to allow a test dive photos will be available. These were driven every 4-6 weeks to keep seals from leaking and fluids changed every 3 months regardless of use. We are using Mobile One with extra filters engine oil coolers, A two regeared 2 speed overdrive was added between the 4 speed tranny and transfer case for 16 forward gears 2 reverse. All computer modeled to avoid clearance issues, binding ill fitting parts etc. Enough parts are on hand to make these original again too. THe Cat Diesel is the true work truck. I got 27 MPG with it HWY. $35K each $65K takes everything. Parts are available with further negotiation on one truck. Both trucks you get extra frames, cabs, mounts, etc. These are very very nice inside. Dunbar did all new springs and an airbag ride was installed. Email with a number for serious buyers ONLY> This will be listed in other locations I am willing to deliver to.”

1960 FC-150 Arvada, CO eBay

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

No reserve auction starting at $1850.  No Title.  Some rust.

“Well I’m sure no expert on Jeeps, but I aquired this 1960 FC-150 from a 82 year old farmer. This is what I call a true “Barn find” It has been stashed away in an old barn for over 20 years. It has all the typical rust in all the typical spots.

This was a running and driving jeep when he last parked it into storage. He had planned to put his portable welder in the back, but never got that far. He lost the title so I can only give you a bill of sale.

With the exception of a sunroof, and a missing radio, I would say that this FC-150 is almost 100% complete and original.

This would make a nifty restoration project, or perhaps A good a parts vehicle. I have no doubts that someone more mechanical than myself could have it running again in fairly short order?

This jeep is old and ugly but it has just around 63,000 original miles on it. The engine/transmission,differentials, etc. are all original. I have turned the engine over by hand and it’s free.

This jeep is over 52 years old, and I I am selling it as is.

I would much rather you plan for the worst, and hope for the best than be dissapointed in any way. And remember… no title.

My opening bid is 1,850.00 with no reserve… I do know that these are getting fairly hard to come by.

Now all that having been said… I can’t imagine finding a more complete, or lower mileage, or a more un-molested 4×4 FC-150 forward control Jeep like this for the price. I only want the buyer to be as excited as I was when it came my way. I have a feeling that whoever ends up with it will be pleased with it…But those are just my thoughts.”

No title nor VIN tag.

“True Barn Find I believe is from the 60’s Complete vehicle

There was metal repair near the Passengers wheel well, at the time the Vin tag must have been removed and never put back on. I do not have it, I do not have a Title and I do not have a prior registration and no way to get one. So Bid accordingly.

The Jeep is complete, its a 4 cylinder F-head, cleaned out the gas tank and Carb and put in fresh gas. Cranked it a few times and it fired right up. It runs smooth, no noises and no smoke issues.

It yard drives, 4 wheel high and low work. Brakes will need work, has a 4 way plow set up but no blade. Hydralic pump on the motor.

Custom made welders body with factory counter weight over rear end.”

Green truck:
1962 – 1 ton – 4 wheel drive – 3 speed transmission – Dana 18 transfer case

Work’N Woody FC-150 Sprint Car Pusher

I ran across this unusually modified FC named Work’N Woody.  According to this website, it’s a modified FC that has been a fixture at race tracks since 1978.  It even has its own website.  You can see a gallery of pictures here.  Pretty cool!  It must be a great place to watch a race.

1963 FC-150 Elgin, TX eBay

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

This needs assembly (drivetrain removed) and some work.

“This is a rare cab-over style Forward Control Jeep with a 2.3 liter F-head 4-cylinder engine, 3-speed T-90 manual transmission, and two-speed T-18 transfer case. I have a clear Texas title in my name. These unusual trucks draw a lot of attention.

The engine and transfer case have seen no use since being rebuilt and they are out of the vehicle, along with the gearbox (in other words, the truck is not drivable as is). Radiator is rebuilt. This truck was sold new in the Phoenix, AZ area and remained there with the original owner’s family (they owned the Jeep dealership) until I brought it to central Texas nearly six years ago, so body corrosion is minimal. Brakes are rebuilt with no miles on them. All window glass is good. Comes with new hoses, wiring harness, clutch, pressure plate, brakes, an alternator with conversion kit brackets, and the following extra items: a pair of doors in good condition, rear window glass, a bare cylinder head, an extra disassembled 3-speed gear box, vacuum brake servo, extra rebuilt generators, an extra starter motor, and various extra pieces of trim and small mechanical items.
