1964 & 1962 FC-170s Bedford, NH $2500 for both

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Either lots of parts or two projects.

“Two FC-170 Jeep Truck projects
Gray truck:
1964 – one of the last FC-170 produced – 1 ton – 4 wheel drive – 3 speed transmission – Dana 20 transfer case
Rebuilt original engine and axles, Frame has been sand blasted and painted.
Cab was sandblasted and primed years ago but will need to be done again. New floor pans and rear window panel included. Windshield, rear window and quarter glass all provided. Doors are included but door glass is missing.

Green truck:
1962 – 1 ton – 4 wheel drive – 3 speed transmission – Dana 18 transfer case
Engine is stuck, axles have been rebuilt
Cab has had some “quick” body work and paint by a previous owner. Looks good from a distance but could use some more work. All glass is in good condition. Front and rear lower cab corners are in excellent condition. Frame has been patched but seems to be strong. Has nice seats and door panels.

Together there are more than enough parts to make one good truck with lots of spare parts.

$2,500 obo

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.

Here are a couple pictures from the website:

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.

“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

Call Duncan at 512- nine-six-five 7583.

More pictures available upon request.

Note if replying via email: If you sound like a spammer or phisher, I will not respond, so in order for a real buyer to get my attention, please include the word “Willys” in the first line of your message.”
