1960 FC-170 Chicago, IL eBay

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Lots of photos on eBay. This looks good from a distance, but the close up photos show it’s not so nice as it first appears. Along the front there are bubbles underneath the paint for example. The windshield wipers could use polish (for the price they are asking).

I’ve included part of the text of the ad, because there’s a lot and it’s a bit over the top. For example, “As we climb into the cab of this cumbersome conundrum, we quickly realize that the restoration wasn’t just an exterior one. Sliding into the newly restored leather seats is a pleasant experience, as your eyes can’t help but take in the view across the span of this giant windshield. Of course the lack-of-hood also helps increase your viewing experience, and also makes maneuvering this rig just a little easier (mind you, we’re test driving down one of the busiest streets in Chicago..). Grip the oversized steering wheel, wiggle the 3 speed gear shifter to make sure she’s in neutral, and take stock of this wonderfully done interior! So basic and raw, yet something about it makes you feel like a kid on Chirstmas, trying to wipe that goofy grin off your face for a good 5 minutes before you realize it’s actually yours to play with.”

1957 FC-150 Redding, CA $4500

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Steve’s selling this FC.

“1957 FC-150 Jeep Pickup 4×4. No engine or transmission in this project vehicle. Electric/Hydraulic flatbed dump. The 7′ bed makes it seem longer like its FC-170 cousin with a 9′ bed. The original pickup bed in an FC-150 is 6′ long.

The condition of the cab is in the top 10% of the surviving FC’s in my estimation. The cab corners are solid. The only rust is along the front edge below the grill, see photos. It doesn’t look like it was repaired before a previous owner painted it. The doors close very nicely. No typical crease in the driver’s door. And the floors are solid.

It’s an easy project waiting for your engine/transmission combination. I have an original F4-134 engine and T-90 transmission from another FC at an additional cost. The truck still has the original 4 cyl. motor mounts. I planned to install a Ford Mustang 6-200 cu. in. engine adapted to a Willys T-90. I would sell the Ford small six with adapter & T-90 for what I have into it. Or use your own engine preference. A V8 is not recommended in this little truck. V6, yes!

If you don’t like the dump bed, I also have an original bed from a 1960 FC150 that needs the rails straightened and some rust repair, and can easily be adapted to the earlier frame if you prefer an original bed, for a little more cost.

Texting is not good communication, so CALL or EMAIL with your phone number please. When it comes to texting, I’m all thumbs. The phone is from OR, the truck is in Redding, CA. ”
