UPDATE: Still Available
(12/13/2013) It might be worth a look.
“Here I have an extremely rare 1957 willys Jeep Forward Control FC-150 pickup for sale. It has an excellent running Hurricane F-134 inline 4 cyl engine that doesn’t smoke and always starts right up. It has a three speed T-90 transmission that shifts greats and holds gear and a Spicer 18 transfercase that also shifts great. The front and rear glass is perfect but the flat glass on the doors could use some help, upholstery is good. All the turn signals, headlamps, hi/low beams, heater and electronic functions work. It is in pretty good shape, drives and stops nicely but it could use some more TLC and attention. I want to continue the restoration but I have too many vehicles and just don’t have the time for it. I recently replaced the battery, starter, all old hoses, stainless steel brakelines and rewired the entire engine bay with correct automotive wire, automotive heat shrink connectors, chafing protection and gaffer tape. It needs new gears in the front axle for 4×4, a speedometer cable and some bodywork but it drives fine as is. 100% clean and clear Arizona title.
Email only, I can take 4,300 cash or trade for a cleanish “daily driver” JEEP Gladiator Pickup J series truck 1962-1970 with the early style “rhino” grille and a manual transmission. No other trades will be considered.”
Bob spotted this photo of a FC-170 built for airports. It’s caption read “New for 1957”. Like the CJ-5 and Jeep Truck airport vehicles, this likely had dual tanks, possibly for water, de-ice or refuse. Here are more examples at the CJ-3B page: http://cj3b.info/Literature/AircraftSupport.html
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was listed at $1000.

“I’m selling a very rare 1958 Jeep FC-170! You might only ever see one or two of these in your life. They’re super cool and great fun to drive. I’ve listed this before but the motor was misfiring, turns out it needed a rebuilt carb. I spent $1000 making it a daily driver and now it’s as reliable as any other (1958) truck =)
Runs like a champ, I’m driving it everyday while the weather is nice.
Anyway, shoot me an email with a picture of ANYTHING you have to trade. This Jeep is literally the 15 or 16th secondary ride I’ve owned so I’m interested in anything with a motor and at least 2 wheels.
I love old trucks, and Volkswagens. VW Bus preferred.”
UPDATE: Was listed at $1500.
This project has some value here.
“1960 Jeep / Willy’s FC-150, Forward Cab FC150. I purchased this about two years ago and it has sat on my property ever since. I had planned on restoring, but, never really got around to it. I have so many projects I figure it’s best that this get in the hands of a collector. The interior and engine have been removed. I believe that most of the parts are in the bed of the truck, however.. there really is no way of telling. There is an engine block in the back.. looks like a Ford V8. These FC’s are really neat and very rare… the 1960 Jeep CJ-5 shares a lot of parts with this FC. I’d say this is a good candidate for a restore for the right individual. Most glass is ok, but some of the windows are cracked. Doors function as they should. You will need a flatbed trailer or truck with a winch to remove this from my property. I know how rare these are and I certainly am in no rush to sell.”
UPDATE: Sold. Was listed at $750.
Looks like a good price. Brewster is in Eastern Washington north of Chelan on why 97.
“1960 FC170 Jeep 4WD 296 Chevy Engine. Lots of spare parts: transmission, transfer case, axels, extra cab and chassis, does not currently run. Good for parts. $750 OBO..”
Walter spotted this. It seems longer than a 150 and shorter than a 170. I’m gonna go with 150.
“This jeep was running last year. My grandpa passed away and now I cant crank it. Needs work”
Marc found these parts for sale.

This does not run.
“Up for auction is my 1959 Jeep FC-170. It does NOT run. I bought it to be the “shop truck” for one of my business’. I can use the space now more than the truck.
I have a clean California title for it. On the title, it states that the truck is a 1959 model and first sold in 1959. The license plate and vin numbers match what is on the title.
I found this truck sitting on a large ranch here in Northern California. There is 60,500 miles on it and is ok condition for being an old ranch truck.
So far I have done the following; New spark plugs, New points, New condenser, New cap and rotor, New choke cable, Rebuilt the carburetor, Brand new dual diaphragm fuel pump (fuel and suction for windshield wipers), New fuel filter, Pulled the fuel tank, cut open, cleaned to new, welded back up, re-installed with new rubber straps, cleaned all hard fuel lines, and New ignition switch. All that is left is to address the cooling system. I would flush and replace water pump and thermostat. Im a firm fan of doing everything correct. I restore and build motorcycles so I bring that same attention to detail to everything I work on. (caseyandersonmotorcycles) to find on the net. The engine turns over nicely and the transmission and transfer case shift just fine. From what I can tell all gauges work (at least, not broken).
Body is ok. The worst is the bit of rust on the roof where it meets the front windsheild (driver side). The glass is great. Yes, little dents here and there. Doors shut nicely. All linkages (steering, shifting, accelerator, etc) all move nicely”

Glenn spotted this non-running FC.
“You are bidding on a 1959 FC-170 Willys Pickup.. It came out of Boulder City, Nevada owned by a miner. Been sitting for 20 years before I bought it 2 years ago. I have not tried to start it to see if it runs. It is a 6 cylinder flat head. Everything on the motor and running gear is original. Has custom made stacks. One is an exhaust stack and the other one is a coolant reservoir. It looks like it is all there as far as running gear goes. It has slight rust. Clear California title. It is registered in op. Couple of the side flat glass is cracked. What you see is what you get”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2000
Unclear if the engine runs.

This appears to have potential.
“1959 Jeep FC 150 4×4
***IOWA LIFE VEHICLE – not going to be a rust free southern state vehicle
*** Project Vehicle
Hurricane F4-134 Engine – 3 Speed Transmission – 4×4 works great.
12V Generator – Headlights, taillights, turns, breaks, blower for heater, and wipers, and gauges all worked well. Ignition switch went out and it controls most of these so I disconnected them and clipped some of the wiring and did not re connect. My plan was to rewire the entire unit with new wires and I never got around to it. All the wires are hanging and could be hooked back up.
Runs and drives great. Have been driving it around town – starts up perfect every time and runs strong.
Unit does have some body and cosmetic work the COULD be done, if you chose. From looking at the pictures you can see most of the bad spots. All 4 corners have some issues – need work. I stuck a magnet to them and beat around on them – magnet stuck well some bondo in them. Floors are ate up pretty good and have temporary replacement steel over them.

“1961 Jeep forward control (FC170) Not currently running. Ran 20 years ago but were not wanting to put forth the time and effort. Bring your trailer! Would make a great restoration project. seats and back window have been removed but are sitting in the bed of the truck. VERY RARE!

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3450.
Unclear how serious the seller is about selling this project.
“I am contemplating getting rid of my 1957 Willys/Jeep FC150. FC stands for Forward Control, the engine is mounted right inbetween the passengers below the cab. This vehicle has the original 134 cubic inch 4 cylinder “F” head Hurricane engine, a T90 3 speed transmission and a T18 transfer case with lockout hubs up front. I had this vehicle shipped down from Minnesota 2 years ago and have done the following: cleaned/painted the back half of the frame, installed a new brake master cylinder, rebuilt the carburetor, installed new belts, and installed new leaf springs and shocks. This vehicle runs and drives and is truly unique. Not many of these vehicles left, even fewer located in the south. I also have an extra cab from a 1964 FC150 that is included in the trade/sale with just about all extra cab parts, such as doors, headlights, turn signals, dash, instruments and also includes a new $150 steering wheel. About 75% of the sheet metal work has been completed on the ’64 cab, which is almost finished. I also have a total of two regular single seats and brackets, and also an additional “dual” bench seat that can be installed on the passenger side. The windows are complete, as well as an extra plexiglass rear window. The windshield has some fogging, however a new windshield can still be purchased for this vehicle. All parts are included with the sale. Maybe interested in trading for another F100 project or an American V-twin bobber motorcycle or a possible ratrod project. Of course cash is king. This project definitely still needs a lot of work, however all parts are included. Two titles, a ’57 and ’64 also comes with this vehicle.”
