“1963 Willys Jeep FC-150
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 (which has not been rebuilt). Radiator is rebuilt. This truck was sold new in the Phoenix, AZ area and remained there with the original owner’s family until I brought it to central Texas about three 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, a spare set of doors, rear window glass, bare cylinder head, spare disassembled 3-speed gear box, vacuum brake servo, plus various extra pieces of trim and small mechanical items.
I had begun restoring it but got interrupted shortly after starting the process and I now realize it will be years before I can get back to it. This is an opportunity to do an easy restoration on a very simple vehicle and end up with a rare and prized vehicle at a budget price. Photos in this ad do not show that rear fenders are removed (stored in bed of truck) and that I had begun to remove excessive body filler in both front doors.
You can research this type of vehicle via several websites but the best place to start is probably: www.thefcconnection.com/
Most of these trucks were sold in the snow belt or to government or road construction companies, so most of the survivors are severely rusted or simply were badly abused. Keep this in mind if you are thinking about bidding on one of these on eBay.
Price for vehicle, as is: $5500.00 Vehicle is located east of Austin, a few miles past the Bastrop County line near Utley.
I have other Jeep parts I wish to sell separately:
T-18 transfer case with extremely low “rock crawler” gears. Low ratio is 4.86:1 instead of the stock 2.46:1. $1000 or best offer
