UPDATE: **SOLD** (04/24/2011) It has some dings and dents, but otherwise appears pretty solid.
“1957 Jeep FC150 Forward Control 4×4. Jeep has the F134 4cyl engine, runs great. Transmission is a T90 3 speed, shifts well, and clutch works fine. D18 transfer case, 4wd works like it should. The truck comes with a Western snow plow and mount. Windshield has a crack, but I have a good replacement windshield. Small amount of rust on the cab corners, and above the windshield, but nothing major as this truck has been in dry Colorado its whole life.
UPDATE: Check out the pics on thefcconnection site.
Steve reports on the Ouray 4th of July Festival. Learn more at the Forward Forum. See all the pictures here.
“Here is Craig and Jason’s big day in Ouray (You-ray), Colorado. It’s the mountain town’s signature event of the year, The Fourth Of July. They asked Craig to bring his restored San Juan Mountain Tour Truck to join in their parade.
Jason found one of the other original tour Jeep Forward Control trucks and surprised them with twins. He just finished the restoration just last week and headed strait for Ouray. Jason’s truck has the yellow signs that say, “Think.”
This links you to the Town’s website describing their 4th of July Festivities. Here are photos of the Two coolest FC trucks ever restored joining their parade. The red FC trucks came from the states of Missouri and Texas to join the reunion in Colorado. They even went on a trail ride across the old routes where the trucks carried tourists through the beautiful San Juan Mountains of Southern Colorado. What a cool experience; I wish I could have been there.”
UPDATE: This is back on eBay

Jesse is selling a flatbed FC-170.
“This is an original 1961 FC-170, 226 / T-90 / D 18, 3/4 ton Flatbed, it has the overload spring pack, Previous Owner installed a sheet metal floor over the bed.
This truck has been in my shop area, since 2003, it was being daily driven and used for farming, until 1990, in Southern, AZ. I drove it up and off of my trailer, and drove it a little around here. It was popping out of gear, so I had the trans rebuilt, the radiator was leaking, it was repaired. It is not currently running. It is a good starting project, it is not pretty, brushed on house paint and needs some body work and some flat glass. It is fairly complete, it even has a good windshield. The best part is it is inexpensive. $1750.
We needed to use the gantry, so we pulled it out to clean up my shop area.
This is what we are doing on it now, the upright pipes on the bed have been removed from the bed, the drivers floor needed to be repaired, and has been welded in, the back of the bed had rust on it and the side rails, it has been repaired and reinforced.
For more details contact me. Memail@example.com”

“WILLYS FC150, 1959
The four-wheel drive FC-150 Forward Control Jeep has the cab situated well forward of the engine to provide more than six feet of cargo bed length despite the 81-inch wheelbase. Overall length was 147.5 inches, two inches shorter than the Nash Metropolitan and 38 inches shorter than a Chevrolet half-ton pickup. Classified as a 3/4-ton unit, though the chassis was basically that of a CJ-5 Jeep, the FC-150 was originally powered by the four-cylinder F-head Hurricane engine producing 75 horsepower and 114 pounds-feet of torque. It now has the 1985 Ford T-Bird fuel injected four-cylinder engine installed.

You can beat the buy-it-now price of $5000 by heading over to Jeeptruck.com where the price is only $4500. This is listed as a FC-170, but seems like a rarer M-667 to me. Am I wrong?
