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. Mfirstname.lastname@example.org”

“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?

“I have a RARE 1966 Jeep FC150. Restoration has been started doors being repaired and primed, and new fenders made for the bed. The glass is all intact. The truck is complete (as far as I can tell) although the bed and front bumper have been removed. The motor ran when it was parked several years ago. The duals in the picture are just two rims bolted together for greater stability when it was towed, the truck was not altered to mount them. I also have the title.”

“Here is a 1958 FC 170 that has been in the shed for 30 yrs. It was my grandpa’s and he has passed away so now it is up for sale. I don’t know what year he bought it and i don’t know much about the history except that the last job he used it for was to fix the pasture fence. I know this because i cleaned out the fence posts and barbed wire. My mom said he always really loved this truck b/c it was his first four wheel drive. the last date on the tag is 1980 so i would say that is when he quite driving it. I got it out a week ago to get it ready to sell. I blew off the motor, checked the oil and air filter, oiled the pistons, put in a battery, checked for spark, rigged up a small gas tank (i did not was to run any old gas through the carb) and then i turned the key. It started right up and my brother and i were taking turns driving it around the farm! this is a cool old truck. So needless to say the vehicle runs and drives. I shifted through all the gears in the transmission and it all felt good. looks like the back seal on the engine is leaking. the brakes do not work. tires are old but hold air, one goes down in a day or so. I can start it for you if you buy it, but i am keeping the battery. I am not sure of the actual miles on this jeep and i don’t recall what the odometer reads so give me a call and i’ll go look at it. the bed is pretty rusty, especially in the front and on the side tubes. the cab looks to be in good shape except for down low on the back sides, see pics. No rust to speak of around the windshield. a dent in the front and some other digs and dents around the vehicle, see pics and call if you want more info. the glass is all good except for passenger window. If that is not enough info I would be happy to tell you more. call me, Jake, @ 620-339-0580. I would like a deposit of $50.00 within 48 hr and and would prefer the remainder in cash. Please no scams and i can’t tell you what the reserve is. If you like please bid.”

“”This Willys Jeep FC 170 Forward Control was purchased by me from an elderly (80s) owner who used it for elk hunting for over 30 years. I drove it home to the ranch, rebuilt the entire rear end body work with boiler plate rails and had it repainted in fire engine red and took it to Olathe Glass in Olathe, Colorado for all new windshield, side windows, vents, rear window and quarter windows with all new rubber around all the new glass. Then I drove it to engine builder Sean Cleary in Aspen, Colorado who had it for several years, along with several of my old cars. Sean started off by replacing the entire suspension with 1/2 ton Chevy suburban axles and springs which have disc brakes and a wider (but not extreme) stance. It has a Chevy in line 6 cyl of about 180 to 210 HP. Never turned over. Fresh. Jeep is now with Robert Moen in Huntington Beach.”
