“Here is a one of a kind ’59 FC170. First of all, I do sell some vehicles on Ebay, almost always old farm trucks, as I live here in the middle of Kansas. I enjoy dealing with the farmers I buy them from, love getting them running again, and also enjoy meeting the people who buy them and seeing where they go. I’ve rescued a lot of old farm trucks. But this one is definitely different. First of all, I’m a little bit of a jeep nut. I have 2 49 jeeps, a 76 Cj7, and numerous AMC vehicles as well. I have never, however, owed a forward control jeep. I was offered the chance to purchase this one, and immediately snapped it up.
The only reason I am offering this for sale, is that I’m more of an original vehicle type of guy, and although this truck has had a ton of money spent on the be and winch, I would prefer one with the original bed. Without exception, until now, I always list my vehicles with a starting price of $10.00 and no reserve. I’ve noticed that there is an ebay law of averages. Sometimes they sell a little high, or a little low, but usually sell for about market valve. This one is a little different, as it’s pretty hard to value, so, I decided if it sells for $4500, o.k. if not, o.k. I’ll put it in my collection.
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was on eBay.
“I am 80 now and the wife says all the project have to go–. This is another project I just do not have time for.
Cab Forward Jeeps were produced from 1957 thru 1965 this one is a 1959 model, short wheel base (81″), the four cylinder motor is 134 cubic inches and rated at 75hp. The first thing I did with this vehicle was to disassemble it and take all sheet metal inside and out to the blaster once that was done red oxide primer was shot on all the bare metal. The cab was then placed back on the chassis. This is as far as I have got on this project. This vehicle when I purchased it did not have a bed, we drove it 8 miles from the purchase site to my place of business. All the gears and the 4wd worked as they should have. This is a roller”
“Rare Jeep FC-170, complete truck, but realize this is a project, I pulled it out of a field in Kansas this last April, where it sat for 22 years. I have a title but it is a Kansas title in the original owners name. The truck has some questionable body work(Bondo) but it is all there. IT DOES NOT RUN NOR DOES IT HAVE BRAKES. The original 6 cyl motor is free and with some gas and a battery it should start, as the carb has been rebuilt, has new wires and plugs, and fresh oil. I have the original Jeep Rims and other parts that will go with it. I lost interest in this and just would like to move it along, price is negotiable but don’t make any offers with out coming to look at it, Cash only!! ”
UPDATE: **Status Unknown** Was For Trade.
It’s a project.
“I’ve got this cool old truck ive been tinkering on for a year now. Ive replaced various things and though it runs good when it runs, i just can’t get it right. Its got lots of rust and some body damage but all the parts are there except for the bed. Original gas tank was hopeless so it’s running off a fuel cell. Its got 2 inch wheel spacers to accommodate the larger tires but still have the original rims. Its a one ton.
This truck would make a really cool hunting rig or just something to drive around in the mountains if you want to put the work into it. It IS a project. They’re quite rare. Have clean title in hand.
Id like to trade this for a good running 3/4 ton or better truck.
The bigger the better, needs to pull a travel trailer. Im open to an suv or even a van if its heavy and in good shape.
I don’t know what the truck’s worth but i dont want to trade for anything with major issues. I don’t mind something ugly. Just depends what it’s worth to you. Please send pics. Thanks for reading.”
It needs a new master cylinder, but could be worth a look.
“Amazing and Cute head turning pickup truck .This rare 1961 Willys Jeep Fc 150 for sale. I have owned this truck for 28 years and am forced to sell. It has a Buick 225 v6 engine, Three speed transmission. not a rust bucket.Current tags and registration. runs well but needs master cylinder work ( brand new part but not kept filled with fluid ) common problem when jeep is not driven. No front wheel drive differential was removed for larger engine. This was my baby and has custom radiator work to prevent overheating. Way worth restoring FC150s are bringing great prices at auctions. Please dont contact me with low ball offers I am not interested in giving the truck away.”
It runs. For some reason this landed on an east coast craigslist rather than a Montana one.
“runs and drives, includes extra cab call”
It’s a project.
“1961 Willy’s Forward Control Pick-up for sale. Newer tires. Rancho shocks. Seats have been recovered. Glass is good.”

“Great old classic Willys cab over FC170 Forward Control for sale. These old trucks are getting extremely hard to find in any condition, let alone with all the body panels, bed, and tailgate. This one was pretty well taken care and has you can see from the pics, still has a lot of potential to restore into a nice old rig.
The body is better than most of them you will find. Sheet metal is fairly straight with exception of drivers door. The bed sides are pretty solid and the bed floor only has minor rot, not shot like most of them. The floors have been patched but the seat pans are mostly solid with a few holes but hold my 240lb rear just fine. The windshield surround only has surface rust and not rotted out like most.
“Rare 1959 FC 170 Willys Jeep Truck came from California. Rare to find in this condition! Very old! Red/ white Truck does come with the box. The box is in fair condition with some surface rust but no holes. The pictures show that this truck has rust just on drivers corner and small spot on very front of the cab! Project truck.
Started right up after first try. Runs a little rough but it does run. Decided not to take on this project on due to too many others. Purchased new U- Joints, new water pump, and a new alternator comes with the truck but these have not been replaced or installed! Has new electric fuel pump installed, new oil in the rear and in front ends. I have removed soft plugs, water pump and radiator off the truck but still have them.
Invested much more than starting price already. Shipping is buyers responsibility and buyer to pay all costs. Prefer local pick up!”

Doesn’t run at the moment. Seller has a variety of extra parts.
“1957 FC150 narrow track.
I have all of the flat glass for replacement crated and will come with jeep. I replaced the wheels and tires when I bought it. I was going to make it a flat bed, but I’ve got too much going on.
Driveline is complete. Motor is not locked up and should run with a battery and gas tank. (I have a truck tank that can go)
Still has original 6 volt system.
Some sheet metal damage on rear of cab and lower cab corners, but I do have replacement pieces from another FC to complete the project. Floors and interior are in fair shape with only a little rust below gas pedal. I have both seat frames. Lost Title but I have Bill of sale from the estate of the deceased. In Texas, this is not a difficult situation. I also have another FHead engine from an FC that can go with it for the right deal.
I have many other jeep parts for FC, CJ, Truck, and MB also.”

Both are projects.
“For sale is a pair of Willy’s Jeep Forward Control 170 1 ton pickups. I bought both hoping to make one out of the two. They both have their pros and cons but together would make a nice FC170. I have decided to sell the two of them as a package deal but I’m not oppose to selling them separately also.
Both have clean titles in my name and are currently registered with collectors plates
$3500 or best offer, cash only, no shipping”
Seller will take offers.
“”Barn Fresh” FC 170, overall looks to be complete and all stock minus the wheels & and sunroof addition. Could be a complete restoration or just a mechanical / cosmetic one. I just got it running and I’ll see if I can attach a video of the motor running – runs really good for having sat for a long time, I haven’t driven it as I have two wheels up on stands so the tires could go to the shop for rim cleaning and tubes. (have to email you engine video – cant upload)
In really good shape overall, has minor rust thru in the drivers inner floorboard – gas pedal area – lower cab corners appear to be pretty decent as do the door / window posts. One never know the extent of minor metal repairs until its all stripped but it all looks pretty decent and really straight. Bed frame’s in great shape(no boards on it), this would make a great restoration project I just dont have time for as I’m building a house currently. Windshield is perfect – rare and expensive! both driver and pass door glass need replacing, quarter and rear windows are fine. Seats complete (need upholstery).
what I’ve done:
plugs, points, condenser, cap,rotor, plug wires, tires w/tubes and carb rebuild. It needs a fuel pump and at a minimum the tank cleaned properly prior to attempting to fuel from there. All this got it running again pretty well.
I may post on ebay but only on here currently. As much as I’d like to take this on and do a complete makeover into something really cool I know I wont get to it for a very long time so better to let someone else have a go at it. Make me an offer if you think the ask price isn’t reasonable.
Thanks for looking, call for details – dont text inquiries please. Clear title”
An FC Chassis with updates and a PTO.

“This rare truck was found in Virginia by one of our good customers who loves interesting, vintage vehicles, especially domestic trucks. 3 more are coming soon…This one is very crusty and obviously not operational. It’s either a project or a parts car, but does have a good title. It belonged to the Jeep dealer in Galax, VA and we believe it may have been used as a snow plow. Other than fit a used tire, we have performed no service. We normally inspect and service everything we sell, but with this one, it seemed better not to start. Due to the age, it is exempt from inspection and odometer reporting. We can deliver it if you are local, otherwise, bring a trailer. Additional photos can be seen on our website www.myautofocus.com”
Given the duallies, there is plenty of value here.
“I have a jeep fc170 with a factory service bed and dually rear wheel. Truck needs restoration. Has lots of extra parts to go with it including the rare 4 speed transmission.”
