Highways Across the Horizon by Dorothy Rogers

• CATEGORIES: Books, FC150-FC170-M677, Features, Women & Jeeps

Highways Across the Horizon was written by Dorothy Rogers, who previous wrote Jeopardy in the Jeep.  I received a copy of it in the mail last week.  I knew the book was about traveling through Asia, but there were two things I didn’t know.  The first think I learned was that she and her travel partner Louise, traveled all the way around the world, starting and ending in New York.  The second surprise was their vehicle of choice:  a FC-170 with a camper.   Craig confirmed today that Dorothy and Louise piloted only the third known FC to make it around the world.  I can’t wait to read about their adventure.

Here are FC related pics:

Year? FC-150 Shippensburg, PA $700

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

there appears to be some value in parts.

“Last chance on this old Jeep FC150 before it heads to the scrap yard, this is a BIG project that I have been holding onto for sometime now but I’m parting ways with the old jeep habit and cleaning up shop. NO TITLE, does not run but motor is not locked up, tires hold air and it does roll fairly easily to load onto a trailer. Major rust issues between the body and the roof line, no rear window. This has a hydraulic dump bed on it but have never tested the pump but the bed does move up and down. These are very hard to find and this would be a nice project but again…it will require a ton of work. If interested, best bet is to come and look at it in person as I will not be sending any additional pictures. It’s rough and if you think you may want it just send me an email with your contact info and I’ll get back to you so you can come and look it over. If it’s not sold by next week, unfortunately it will be heading to the scrap yard but I thought someone may want to give it a home before it heads to it’s grave never to be seen again.”

No, these aren’t real.  They are mockups using a photoshop posted by David Mosley on Flickr.  Still, they look intriguing.

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.”
