UPDATE: **SOLD** For $3950 on eBay.
This ex-American Legion FC sports a rear PTO. It does need some work.
“Here’s a very hard to find FC-150. Used as a parade vehicle by the American Legion years ago. It was towed from event to event and the tow bar comes with it for easy pick up. Very cool looking paint job. Hurricane 4 cylinder engine. Comes with white spoke wheels and original rims with tires. PTO in rear! The photos show the condition of the FC-150. Having owned a couple of these it’s hard to find one with such a clean undercarriage. It’s been off the road for several years so it will need some work to be driver.
Good looking FC.

“This is what I believe to be a 1958 Forward Control Jeep 150 4×4. I am not sure of the exact year. These are super rare antique forward control jeeps. This vehicle is complete, but in poor condition. The engine (hurricane 4 cylinder) turns over and the transmission shifts through the gears. I have not tried to start it. I am selling this vehicle for parts or restoration. The pictures describe it better than my words can.
I am asking $899 or best offer. If you are interested, please email me and we can setup an appointment to view it. The jeep is located in Glens Falls and we can help to transport for a nominal fee.”
Craig posted this photo from Alaska to the FC Forum that shows an FC trapped among some trees … or perhaps encouraging their growth.
UPDATE: Was on eBay. Now on Craigslist.
“Up for auction is my SUPER RARE 1963 Willys 4×4 Jeep FC-170 forward control pickup truckwith full light bar. It has a desirable, 6-cylinder motor that was rebuilt 10 years ago. It has a manual transmission. The Jeep has been garaged and has not been run in the last 5 years due to the clutch going out. It needs brake work. I have not tried to start it since I parked it a few years ago. There are small, minor rust spots at random around the vehicle; also, the floor pans on driver’s and passenger sides needs work. This vehicle has always been garaged. This would be fantastic as a restoration project, or to do some work and drive around as it is now!
It has a current 2014 tag and registration. It is not required in the state of Georgia to have a title for this old of a vehicle. The truck is located 35 miles south of Atlanta, GA. Buyer is responsible for pick-up/transportation.”
UPDATE: Was $1500. **SOLD**
This runs and drives.
“1957 Forward Control Jeep FC-150 runs and drives and steers very well. The lights, turn signals, and wipers work. The clutch is a little grabby but it shifts fine. The engine sounds good with no knocking or smoking. It is 12 volt and has electric wipers. The wheels are powder coated and it has new BF Goodrich T/A KO tires. The carburetor, fuel pump, intake manifold, stainless surge tank, e-brake cable and shoes, and transfer case output seal are recently new. It has the usual rust problems in the cab corners, bed, and floor, but the roof gutters are solid and the bed rails are straight. There is a PTO with a sprocket and chain that probably drove a hoist at some point. It does also have the rear ballast weight in place. I can assist with shipping if you make all the arrangements.”
UPDATE: Still Available

“Utility bed ONLY… No truck. 1962 Stahl utility box bed, From 1962 Jeep FC170. 4X9 between boxes. All doors latch but no key for locking. VERY HEAVY steel construction. good condition. ….http://youtu.be/rt6Oh_GbV-o“
UPDATE: Price dropped to $1600.
(07/14/2014) Unclear if it will run or not, but currently doesn’t.
“For sale : Super cool Jeep FC-170 4 wheel drive. Has been re-powered with a Ford 6 cylinder , looks like a 300 but not sure. Has Jeep trans and Dana 44’s front and rear. I bought it with the intent of restoring it or putting the cab on a late model GM van chassis, but have no time. I’ve been too busy to take a battery and gas can to it so I don’t know if it runs or not. Everything looks complete, body is not perfect but not junk either-minor rust in the usual places. Doors open and close nicely. The flatbed is wood with corrugated steel over,wood is pretty rotted. Frame has light scale but is real solid. Rolls nice and steers well. Have clear title but didn’t change it into my name.“
It’s a project.
“This is a project. It needs to be seen in person. The Chevy Vortec engine came out of a 2002 Chev truck and is the same engine used in the Blazer. It includes automatic transmission and 4wd output. The frame has been modified for this engine but some work remains to be done. The frame was sand blasted to bare metal, then primered and then painted with Imron. The two seats have been reupholstered. It will take a couple trailers to transport everything. It is stored in a storage garage in Los Angeles.”

My wife went with her uncle and aunt to Ellensburg to check out some antiques. While there, she encountered the owners of Hop Town Pizza (the FC makes the website, too), a new mobile wood-fired pizza company. They decided to buy the FC-150 you see below (found in Yakima). Apparently, they know little about FCs, but they thought it was cute and practical. They still need to repaint it and rebrand it for their business.
Ann tried their pizza and told me it was outstanding! So, if you are in the Ellensburg, Washington, area and you see them at an event, make sure to grab some pizza!
It’s a project. It includes a parts rig.
“These old Jeeps are cool, ugly but cool. When was the last time you saw one of these on the road? You don’t even see them at the local hot rod cruise in’s. Ugly or cool, they are very unique! When I was driving this beast around it always drew a crowd – at the gas station, at the store and got waves on the road all the time!
This is a great project, all the parts and pieces are here and ready for your attention. It has been in my garage for 12 plus years, time for me to move along and transfer this to someone who is going to finish it!
“959 Jeep FC-170. 4 wheel drive pickup, 6 cylinder engine, turns over, not running.
Has a title. rusted out floor boards cab corners and bed.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $1200.
(01/14/2014) This might make a good parts vehicle or more.
“Vehicle is all there except rear fenders. Got hit by a tree in the bed and it needs recycling. Tranny and engine were rebuilt but seized now. Windshield cracked, some rust, on rubber, can be towed.”
“Fc150 jeep in the 1960s
Frame and axles rebuilt already needs body restro
Started project no time to finish
Unclear if this runs.
“Testing the waters on this unique piece of equipment. Email with questions or offers.”
May have some value in parts.
“Very rare combination! 1958 fc170 straight 6 4wd straight shift w/PTO drive and Ramsey 8000 winch. Body seems no good very rusted but chassis has a lot of potential. Does not run. Great winter project. Obo will consider trades”
Both are rough.
“I have a 1961 willys cab over fc-170
Can be used for parts

1961 6226 pickup
Can be used for parts
“Rare and interesting Foward Control Willys 1 ton truck with a 9′ cargo box. Inline six “Hurricane” engine and T-98 four-speed trans. 5:38 gear ratio 4 x 4 + Hi-Low transfer case and PTO winch. Said to be an ex-government truck.
Truck has been restored by an unknown party but appears to be a frame-off. Everything is redone top to bottom. Frame and running gear are clean and freshly painted. Interior is amazing, with fresh vinyl everywhere and even a complete headliner. Needs new door seals. (Available). Has new floor mats. New tires on coated rims. New gas tank. Must have been a ton of money spent on this.
Over $2000. in recent work by me with complete new brakes and tune-up, carb rebuild, etc. Has new electric wiper system that works perfectly. The body is very sraight and I can’t find a hint of rust anywhere, but there was a problem with paint prep, and the new paint is coming off. Will need prep and paint to be perfect.
Be the only one on your block with one of these. Everywhere I go people tell me they’ve never seen one before and run past Camaros to see it at shows.”
Hook up a battery and this is supposed to run.
“I’m selling this for my father. it’s a Forward Control 150 front and rear dana 44 axles with factory 5.88 gears, 3 speed manual 4×4 locking front hubs. he bought it to plow and now uses something else so this rare Willys just sits. put a battery in it and a starter and use it as is or restore it or turn it into a trail rig. the cab corners are rotted but if you turn it into a trail rig you’ll want to cut those put to fit bigger tires. these are very rare if you can find one in better shape running and driving with a title buy it but good luck. anyway price is $1500 but may entertain serious offers plow comes with for the right offer. might trade for something 4×4 but other offers considered.”
Runs and drives.

(08/22/2014) Brian forwarded this ad for a running and driving FC that needs some finish work.

Whole jeep is painted with spray paint for quick and easy touch ups if needed.New tires less than 500 miles on them. Runs good and and drives nice. Has 4 cyl hurricane motor with a 3 speed manual tranny. Missing the windshield as u can see in pics.Needs a little more work to be finished but is drivable the way it is.”

Looks like a good FC.
