1964 FC-170 Flanagan, IL $28,000

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE Price dropped to $28,000.

Up for auction is a very rare (1 of 1,119) 1964 Kaiser Jeep Forward Control 170 3/4 ton pickup truck. 1964 was the last year of production for the FC-170 and the end of the Kaiser/Jeep era. This could be your only chance to ever buy a fully restored FC-170, no kidding they are that rare. 

This Jeep was fully restored by a professional shop in 2010, not some father son project in a back yard. The attention to detail speaks to this fact. Since restoration the Jeep has accumulated approximately 1000 proven miles.

The Jeep was restored to original with a few modern upgrades. The seats are a bucket type that are fully adjustable. Custom 33 gallon fuel tank with stainless steel filler neck. Custom made rear bumper with built in LED tail lights. LED side marker lights. Two storage lids were fabricated behind the seats to cover the battery and a storage area. Engine will run on unleaded fuel. 

The teal green is the original color as is the white grill and white wheels. An additional pin stripe was added around the white accent.

The front winch bumper was most likely a dealer add on. It has a Ramsey 8000 lbs PTO driven winch with 50′ of cable.

Engine and transmission were fully rebuilt and hardened valve seats were added to the engine so unleaded fuel can be used.

Runs, drives and stops well for 55 year old vehicle. New carb. kit, installed. New fuel tank and sending unit installed. All fluids changed. Good windshield.

A classic vehicle not seen often these days.
I DON’T NEED to sell it and I, sure, DON’T need any help to do so. 
I know what these are worth so save us both some time and don’t attempt a low ball offer, not going to happen. I’ll just keep it.
It’s a cool old truck! It needs to be driven and I don’t have the time. 
Local pick up only, will not ship. Have your money in hand. I have title in hand and it is current on registration. Registered in Iowa as “Antique”, includes perfect, vintage Y.O.M. (1959) Iowa, “Iowa County” (48), plates to drive with legally.

1958 FC-170 Delmont, PA $2000

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE: Still Available

(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.

One has title, one looks like a parts fc.

i have 2 jeep fc 170s, this is the forward cab 1 ton, super rare, not an fc150, these are the big boy 6 cyl 1 ton chassis

#1 1965 title, vinplate, ran and drove last year, look good (relatively) blasted and coated chassis, all mechanicals gone through, cab has rust but looks decent, drivetrain solid, complete, bed is rusted beyond repair, starts and runs great, brake fluid leaked out over winter so no brakes but besides that it runs and drives, 

#2 1962 no title, for parts only, engine locked up, no trans, cab cut up from previous owners “repairs”, no bed (this vehicle is stored at a seperate location)

i have a million things i could say about everything, but if you are truly interested you will know what they are and all about them, serious buyers only

these are not nice or restored, the one is a REALLY good vehicle besides the cab and bed, just rust,”

1961 FC-150 Loveland, CO $4600

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Needs a few items, but sure looks solid.

Here’s a most affordable RARE antique vehicle, made by Willys for farm/ranch use.

This little truck’s teeny 134 c.i. engine runs very well, top speed about 45 mph in high range. Same running gear as a similar era CJ, but it’s mid-engined, giving it great traction in 4wd. The little flatbed has a massive set of springs supporting it, 15″ tires are good, paint/body are decent.
Included is a 6′ Western snowplow, power lift only, that is currently not installed but its frame can be easily re-bolted. With chains on all wheels, I’ve pushed fresh snow high as the windows. The cabover design lets you see right where the blade is, for tight spots.

Strong Points:
Has a high Cool Factor. Everybody likes the Jeep.
Starts right up, and roars right off — is a good runner; a great repair manual and minor spare parts included.
Great running gear — no leaks, brakes are very good (for it’s era).
Driver’s window is just right for hanging your elbow out.

Weak Points:
Windshield has major cracks on the right side and both side glass is plexiglass (been that way since before I bought it in the late 80’s – I did see an ad recently for a cab with intact glass for $100, so this is solvable).
Runs hot in the summer (needs a bigger radiator fan and vents in the bed’s headboard), needs a speedo cable made up.”
