February 1957 Motor Trend Article on the FC

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677, Features, Magazine

Motor Trend has a short throwback post about the February 1957 article on the FC-150. The author of the 1957 article made at least one error, accidentally indicating the engine was a Jeep six cylinder. I haven’t read the article, so I don’t know how through it is. You can view the short post here. Below is one of the story’s pics.

1958 FC-170 Ocala, FL eBay

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

Designed for carrying hunting dogs and more makes this an unusual FC.

“Up for auction is this unique 1958 Jeep FC-170. This is a Forward Control model with a 3-speed manual shift. The previous owner had the rear body fabricated especially for hunting. The hunting body features upper and lower seats that still have the original protectors on them. The body was designed for transporting and running hunting dogs. It features kennels for the dogs, coolers, a water tank, and racks for holding guns. This is a well designed and built unit, with solid doors, sturdy frame, it even has cushioned armrests on the hunting seats. The upgraded front bumper features a wench. Previous owner said that the mileage shown was original.

This Jeep has currently been started up and driven a small distance. The engine sounds great and the brakes seem to be working. The headlights are also working. The wench on the front has not been tested out. This is a solid and pretty complete Jeep for a 1958. The previous owner kept it in a garage since 1976 (the last time it was registered). It does need new tires and a brake checkup, once those are done it should be ready for use.

The cab is in good shape, the floor pans are solid.”

1960 FC-150 Cedar Springs, MI **Status Unknown**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE: Was $1200. Status Unknown.

Seller would prefer to see this restored rather than parted.

“I have a Jeep FC 150 for sale. This vehicle is rough but is restorable. The bed needs to be scrapped however the cab can be used. The rust damage on the cab is mostly limited to the lower corners which should be a reasonable repair. The engine and drive train is original and consists of the F134 Hurricane Inline 4, T90 Transmission and Dana 18 TCase. I have a lot of requests for people wanting parts however I would prefer to see it restored.
I respond to emails and texts quickly.”

1957 FC-150 Phoenix, AZ $4300

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

UPDATE: Still Available

(12/13/2013) It might be worth a look.

“Here I have an extremely rare 1957 willys Jeep Forward Control FC-150 pickup for sale. It has an excellent running Hurricane F-134 inline 4 cyl engine that doesn’t smoke and always starts right up. It has a three speed T-90 transmission that shifts greats and holds gear and a Spicer 18 transfercase that also shifts great. The front and rear glass is perfect but the flat glass on the doors could use some help, upholstery is good. All the turn signals, headlamps, hi/low beams, heater and electronic functions work. It is in pretty good shape, drives and stops nicely but it could use some more TLC and attention. I want to continue the restoration but I have too many vehicles and just don’t have the time for it. I recently replaced the battery, starter, all old hoses, stainless steel brakelines and rewired the entire engine bay with correct automotive wire, automotive heat shrink connectors, chafing protection and gaffer tape. It needs new gears in the front axle for 4×4, a speedometer cable and some bodywork but it drives fine as is. 100% clean and clear Arizona title.

Email only, I can take 4,300 cash or trade for a cleanish “daily driver” JEEP Gladiator Pickup J series truck 1962-1970 with the early style “rhino” grille and a manual transmission. No other trades will be considered.”

1959 FC-170 Phoenix, AZ $7700

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

UPDATE: Price dropped to $7700

“I’m selling a very rare 1958 Jeep FC-170! You might only ever see one or two of these in your life. They’re super cool and great fun to drive. I’ve listed this before but the motor was misfiring, turns out it needed a rebuilt carb. I spent $1000 making it a daily driver and now it’s as reliable as any other (1958) truck =)
Runs like a champ, I’m driving it everyday while the weather is nice.
Anyway, shoot me an email with a picture of ANYTHING you have to trade. This Jeep is literally the 15 or 16th secondary ride I’ve owned so I’m interested in anything with a motor and at least 2 wheels.
I love old trucks, and Volkswagens. VW Bus preferred.”
