Roger Martin is hosting an FC Gathering and Swap Meet July 24-26, 2015, in Waynesville, Ohio. Ann and I had a very nice time with Roger at his place in 2013. He’s got plenty of space in a quiet area with lots to see.
Roger’s FC-150 Flatbed
2015 Jeep FC Meet, Waynesville, OH 45068
Gathering & Swap Meet: July 24 – 26
Contact: Roger Martin, 937-477-5270, firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a personal invitation to a Jeep FC-Only event in the “Midwest”. We hope to see all FC Owners and friends of Jeep Forward Controls and Jeep Fleet Vans in July. Come with or without your Jeep Forward Control or Fleet Van. See these rare vehicles, talk about your project, and meet other collectors.
There’s plenty of room for trucks, trailers, RV’s (no RV hook ups), primitive camping, and even semi-trucks. An RV park (hook-ups) with cabins, & campground is 1 ½ miles away. Waynesville (6 miles south ), Antique Capital of the Midwest, has a motel. Xenia (10 miles north) has three motels. I live 25 miles southeast of Dayton, Ohio. The Dayton International Airport is about 45 minutes away.
Watch for updates and comments on The Forward Forum.
Roger and I check out one of his DRW projects back in 2013.

MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer a very rarely seen, very unique 1963 Jeep FC150 Cab Over Engine. FC150 stands for “Forward Control,” which is often referred to as a “cab-over” and the model used a slightly wider chassis and wheelbase of the CJ-5. This particular example is equipped with an upgraded V6 engine, 4×4 and was totally restored in the recent past and looks absolutely wonderful! This Jeep almost looks quirky and is sure to demand attention anywhere it may go!
The body of this neat, little truck is in great shape while being very sound. The truck has a large stake-bed, complete with a “wood” floor that looks great. The body is painted with a bright red paint that looks awesome. The paint shows very well, showing only minor imperfections. There is a little bit of chrome on the truck and it all shines brilliantly! Overall, this is an awesome truck capable of driving on the streets or tearing up some logging trail or power line backwoods!
Ran last summer.
“Truck needs restoration, pictures show the details. Needs body work. Ran last summer, but have not tried to start it since. Mileage unknown”

(09/19/2014) Runs and drives with an updated motor.
“Am selling my 1960 Willys Jeep FC150 Forward control truck. Is an awesome condition truck for It’s age. These trucks are super cool and hard to find. Would be an easy restoration or drive it as is. Runs and drives well. Good windshield. 3 speed trans works well. Transfercase works properly. Has Dana 44 axles in both ends from the factory. Factory installed 11 inch brakes. Engine is a 153 Chevy 4 cylinder. Runs good with no issues. Is super fun to drive and will attract attention wherever it goes. Clean Colorado title. “
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.
“Body off frame restoration.
Rebuilt engine and drive train.
Fresh Red and White Paint interior and exterior.
New handcrafted shiny wood sideboards and bed.
New upholstery and foam.
New glass .

MIght be some value here.
“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

(06/09/2014) Just the box is for sale.
“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: Was $1600. **Status Unknown**
(07/14/2014) Unclear if it will run or not.
“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 Hoptown 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.”
