Buz was exploring SEMA today and happened upon this built FC. This jeep is part of the “Battle of the Builders”. Buz sent the description written by the builder.
“1958 Restomod Jeep. In the words of Mark Turner, CEO of Daystar Products International, “This vehicle was built to be driven.” To date, Turner’s classic cab forward 58 jeep has many trips including one down to the southernmost point int he United States, Key West Florida. The jeep is built to embrace both hot rodding and off-roading with specific parts that can handle both responsibilities. Under the hood is a late-model 5.7 liter Hemi engine which supplies power to a transmission and transfercase, suitable for on and off road use. The jeep also features 17-inch vintage wheels wrapped in interco tires. Inside, modern amenities such as air condition, leather seating, and cruise control help define the jeep as a dual purpose specialist.”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $1800.
(12/06/2015) May be worth a look.
“1965 forward control 170 jeep 3/4 ton 4×4 it is complete with good title could be used for parts or project it has rust on cab. frame is in excellent shape has hurricane 6 cyl last run in1996 has side dump bed on it would trade for older ford truck.”
Seller lists this as a FC-150, but it looks longer than that to me.
“this jeep is in good mechanic conditions, everything works ready to go.good proyect 30.000 only been made very rare, ”
It’s a project.
“1962 Willys FC170 4wd. I was planning on restoring this over the winter, however don’t believe that will happen. The frame is solid and the engine is not seized, but it does not run. Due to the year of the FC, it never had a title. I spoke with the NYC DMV prior to purchasing this project and they provided all the necessary paperwork required to register the vehicle once it is ready for the road. This is the late style cab to assist in the air flow for the engine cooling.
This is a project jeep. The cab needs work, however I purposed looked for a flatbed style to limit the amount of sheet metal work required.
Definably one of the more unique Jeep designs and would be a blast once she is completed. ”
Craig spotted this one.

(10/01/2016) Jim spotted this pair of FCs.
“We bought these a while back as projects for our shop. Well, we got caught up doing other things and these got pushed to the back burner and now they are just sitting here taking up space. It is going to be a long time before we get to them, so it is time to let them go to someone who can probably use them for parts or to rebuild. I was told that one was a 57 and one was a 58, but someone has since told me one is a widetrack and is a newer model. Not sure what year though. They both have a lot of rust. One has the doghouse and tailgate, the other does not. They are both missing the seats. One of them has a better body and one has a better bed, but they both have the complete 4-cyl driveline. One of them supposedly ran but we never got a chance to try it out.
No titles on these, came from out of state, sold on Bill of Sale. ”
Needs some work.
“Well here it is ready to be finished off the hole underneath was a body off or stored sandblasted frame went through the differentials check the motor had plenty of compression need to hook up brakes and drive shaft only needs body work to be completed almost all parts are there except for back windshield back window that’s flat that’s easy I’ll have a new Painless wiring harness and new carburetor ”
It’s a project.
“Jeep forward control. Very rare and hard to find. Will need complete restoration but it is all pretty much there. Some rust in the floors and bed. Must see in person to really get a good look at it so call me to set up a time or if you have any questions”
Hasn’t been run in two years.
“Rare 1959 FC 150 Willys Jeep. Original flat 4 engine. I have owned her since 2001. She ran fine and I drove her up until 2014. 3 speed tranny with Hi/Lo mode. She is red/white. She is in rough shape now, has body cancer, doors and windows not working, and more. She has not been run in two years so I can’t vouch for anything working. All offers will be considered. Any questions please contact Jeff.”
According to the seller, the frame has been altered to for an FC-170 bed.

“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”
