2 FC-170 Tellico Plains, TN **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500.

(12/13/2014) Both are projects.

“I have two Willys FC170’s for sale. I would also consider trading even for a J series pickup truck or a toyota 4×4 truck. I have 3 of these forward controls and I have come to realize I will never fix up all 3 of them. I am keeping the one I have the most money and time in and letting the other 2 go. They are projects and I have not messed with either of them or tried to get them running. They are both fairly complete with enough to make one complete truck if you combined the two easily. The orange truck is in really nice shape body wise (if I had got it first I would have used it as it is worlds better than what I am working with). The green truck has some body damage but its not very rusty either. Both are flathead 6 with the t90 three speeds and dana18 transfer cases. Green one is 1959 and Orange is a 1960.”

Video of the Swedish FC-150AM in Action

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677, Features, videos

As Craig put it when he forwarded me the link, this is FC Gold. Below is a video of an original Swedish Scania Vabis FC-150AM. Learn more about the existing FC-150 AM at http://www.thefcconnection.com/fc’s_from_norway.htm. Also, look for glimpses of the FC Minibus as well.

As you watch the video, you’ll be able to view the point at which this photo was taken, though the scene of the photo being taken is cut. The photo comes from the book the “Jeepen i Sverige”:  http://cj3b.info/Finds/FindsSweden.html (looks like a very interesting book!)

According to Even Erlien, both the FC-150Am and the Volvo c202 were built with specification given by the Swedish Army. The Jeep-Scania got round fenders and the Volvo got square. Here’s a comparison of the two:

1957 FC-150 Sparks, NV **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , , .

UPDATE: **SOLD**

(11/29/2012) I like the company’s logo.  Neat truck.

“1957 Willys Jeep FC150. First year made and very hard to find truck. Has the great V6 oddfire engine with less than 2,000 miles since rebuilt. Lots of gears for on/ off road- 3 speed manual transmission, overdrive and then transfer case. In case you are unaware the FC’s are built on same frame as CJ5 so they are not a large truck. Does highway speeds at 65 very nice. Complete drive-train recently gone through and professionally done including transfer case, transmission, overdrive, axles, brakes. Paint in good condition.”

1957 FC-170 Keller, TX **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE: Was $2500. Status Unknown.

“Up for sale is our 1957 Jeep FC170, forward control. This was to be a project for my son and I but the body work is over our head. This truck is highly collectible and complete, everything is here including a new windshield and service manual. This is a 4wd vehicle with locking hubs in the front. The engine is the 6 cylinder with a 4 speed manual transmission and 2 speed Dana Spicer transfer case.

This would make a great father and son project, or can be used for parts. The body is extremely rusty and will need extensive work. I’ve attached as many photos as possible so that you can see everything.

We would consider a trade for something of equal value, possibly another Jeep CJ, Wrangler, Land Cruiser, Trooper, MG, sports car, Triumph, or other 4×4.”

FC Parts Cedar Springs, MI

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Still lots of FC parts.

“I bought several Willys Jeep FC150 & FC170 forward-control trucks this summer as a package purchase. I still have a LOT of small FC parts on the shelf, and included photos of just a handful of them. Just a handful of the extra parts I have include:

Very nice 1961 FC170 “rolling frame” (frame, springs & axles, but NO wheels/tires) INCLUDING A TITLE. No rust damage whatsoever…perfect foundation for a clean-up/restoration while you continue to drive your FC170. Closed-knuckle Dana 44 front axle, Dana 53 rear axle (should be stock 4.88 gearing in both). $200

1960 FC150 cab: This is my friend’s “fixxer-upper” cab (I sold him a better-condition cab for his project). Includes doors (not shown). No glass, but I may be able to help with some of that for additional $$$. $300 cab-only. If you’d like to pair it with the FC170 rolling chassis (minor body mount changes would need to occur), or one of the two Super Duty frames I also have listed on CL, price will be a little lower.

FC dash panels (multiple), $35 each.

Early FC150/FC170 heater assembly. $40.
Spare tire carriers. $40 each.

Door handles/hardware (open to offers)

Spare metal window frames (bolts to door panel). $35 each.

T150A (with T150J input shaft) 3-speed manual transmission with side-shifting & linkage. $100.

FC150 & FC170 interior hoods. $35 each.

Two (2) extra FC roofs, including drip rails (great for your damaged/rusted drip rail repair). (open to offers)

Various other FC sheet metal (good for patch panels)

Many, MANY other FC parts…just ask.”

February 1957 Motor Trend Article on the FC

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677, Features, Magazine

Motor Trend has a short throwback post about the February 1957 article on the FC-150. The author of the 1957 article made at least one error, accidentally indicating the engine was a Jeep six cylinder. I haven’t read the article, so I don’t know how through it is. You can view the short post here. Below is one of the story’s pics.

1958 FC-170 Ocala, FL **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677, Unusual • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Was on eBay. **Status Unknown**

Designed for carrying hunting dogs and more makes this an unusual FC.

“Up for auction is this unique 1958 Jeep FC-170. This is a Forward Control model with a 3-speed manual shift. The previous owner had the rear body fabricated especially for hunting. The hunting body features upper and lower seats that still have the original protectors on them. The body was designed for transporting and running hunting dogs. It features kennels for the dogs, coolers, a water tank, and racks for holding guns. This is a well designed and built unit, with solid doors, sturdy frame, it even has cushioned armrests on the hunting seats. The upgraded front bumper features a wench. Previous owner said that the mileage shown was original.

This Jeep has currently been started up and driven a small distance. The engine sounds great and the brakes seem to be working. The headlights are also working. The wench on the front has not been tested out. This is a solid and pretty complete Jeep for a 1958. The previous owner kept it in a garage since 1976 (the last time it was registered). It does need new tires and a brake checkup, once those are done it should be ready for use.

The cab is in good shape, the floor pans are solid.”
