1962 FC-170 Project Portland, OR **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE: Status Unknown. Was $14,500.

Still some assembly required.

1962-fc170-portland-ore7 1962-fc170-portland-ore8 1962-fc170-portland-ore9

“This Forward Control 170 is just about ready for final re-assembly. Her body is almost fully prepped for paint and the running gear needs a few more pieces. She’s rust free and just needs wrenching time. Located in Portland, OR she is part of collection of projects owned by a serious restorer of everything Willys.

The body is in fantastic shape with 90 %+ of the work completed. The undercarriage looks fabulous, and no rust can be detected. The cab is ultra-solid, one door needs to be reskinned and she is missing the windshield. Previous owner engineered a forward tilting cab using a hydraulic ram, allowing access to the running gear. Most every item is available to finish the exterior, from bumpers to emblems.

FC-150 Bed West Point, NE **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $399.

(06/03/2021) No pics provided.

“I bought this FC bed out in western Nebraska with the intent of using it behind a cj10 cab.
That project changed hands and directions several times, and now I have an FC bed with no home for it.

I do consider chopping it to make it a different size for some other Jeep based pickup project.

But if someone needs it for an actual FC, that would be best.

It’s not pristine, so modifying it wouldn’t be a huge sin. But it’s solid enough that a real enthusiast might want or need it. Not many folks can say they’ve ever owned any forward control Jeep parts at all, so maybe you want it for bragging rights or to build a trailer for your flatfender.

I paid 500 several years ago, so I guess we can start there. Just my luck it’ll be worth 3000 and I still let it go for 500…”

Highways Across the Horizon by Dorothy Rogers

• CATEGORIES: Books, FC150-FC170-M677, Features, Women & Jeeps

UPDATE: This ad published in the Los Angeles Times, June 15, 1962, by the Alaskan Camper Factory, welcomed Dorothy and Louise back into the United States after their trip around the world in an FC-170 (with an Alaskan camper, of course).

1962-06-15-losangeles-times-rogers-ostberg-alaskan-camper-ad-lores

===================

Originally Published October 06, 2021: Highways Across the Horizon was written by Dorothy Rogers, who previous wrote Jeopardy in the Jeep.  I received a copy of it in the mail last week.  I knew the book was about traveling through Asia, but there were two things I didn’t know.  The first think I learned was that she and her travel partner Louise, traveled all the way around the world, starting and ending in New York.  The second surprise was their vehicle of choice:  a FC-170 with a camper.   Craig confirmed today that Dorothy and Louise piloted only the third known FC to make it around the world.  I can’t wait to read about their adventure.

Here are FC related pics:
