(06/28/2014) Seller would prefer to sell these as a lot.
“I have a 1961 fc-170 and 2 1957 fc-150s. One is disassembled but has the pieces to be put back together. Tons of parts and pieces not pictured, including some new windows and a newly rebuilt engine. Would prefer to sell as a whole lot. Make an offer, email for more pics/ info”
UPDATE: Photo added.
(08/05/2014) Make sure to put “Cab Over” in the subject line of the email to help seller weed out spam emails.
“Please read entire ad before responding.
1959 Willys Jeep “Forward Control”, FC-150, Deluxe Cab over engine, 4×4. All original and always stored indoors.
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. Door glass and rear glass are cracked but good for templates or drive as is. Flat glass can be replaced by most local glass shops. Cab corners in good shape. All interior parts are there, including dog house, rare glove box and has new seat covers installed.
These vehicles are rare to find in this condition, anywhere, in the Midwest.
It is NOT a rust bucket, NOT a parts truck.
All frame, tailgate and sheet metal in great shape. No rust or rot.
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.
Can e-mail pictures, etc.
Include “Cab Over” in subject or it will be deleted due to scammers.
Include e-mail and phone number in response.
Thanks for looking!”

“4wheel drive, red, driver, nice, 85% restored”
In honor of this weekend’s FC Northwest Gettogether in Tacoma, Washington, I thought this article was appropriate. McCahill isn’t shy about some of his ‘beefs’ with the new FC.
UPDATE: Still Available
(07/26/2014) Has some rust.
“I have a super rare 1962 Willys FC-150 (Forward Control). Approximately 8800. It’s powered by a 4cyl F4 with a 3 speed T-90 transmission (rebuilt) all new brakes, carb was rebuilt, new shocks, 12volt conversion chassis was all painted. All lights and directionals work. Heat works. All glass is there and in great shape. The body is rough in some spots but it’s all there. I was driving the truck every weekend and let me tell you the stares and looks I would get were worth the truck alone.”
UPDATE: Pics now provided.

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

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.
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.
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.”
Has some rust.
“Asking $300 or best offer for this 1960 Forward Control Jeep 150 BareCab. Windows are not included, some rust damage, has been cleaned and power washed. Contact me for more information.”
Has a V-8 with a bed mounted radiator.
“65 Jeep FC170, Super good condition, 360 engine, automatic transmission, PTO in rear, never stored outside, auxiliary radiator in bed behind cab, additional lower leaf springs. Some TLC needed no major repair. Less than 11K miles on the vehicle. (asking price $8000)”
It’s a project.
“1962 Jeep FC170 project, solid cab and bed, runs great, includes all parts to complete.”
Mark just posted this good looking FC at jeeptruck.com.
“91000 miles, Raptor line interior, exterior a 1 day paint job. we didn’t spend lot of time on i, knocked down, Shot with a urethane primer, gave it four coats of a quick Polly. Windshield 2 chips, 6 cyl. Runs strong.”
UPDATE: This was a government model. There’s a id plate on the dash (thanks Dan!).
The interior appears well-coverd with paint.

UPDATE: Was on eBay now on Craigslist.
(02/26/2014) This former California FC appears to still have a California black plate on the front.
“YOU ARE LOOKING AT MY 1964 JEEP FC170. IF YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE AND STUMBLED ACROSS THIS AUCTION CHECK OUT THEFCCONNECTION.COM. I HAVE ONLY SEEN ONE OTHER OF THESE TRUCKS IN PERSON AND IT WAS A FC150, SHORTER BED AND SOME OTHER THINGS. ONCE I SAW IT I KNEW I HAD TO FIND ONE. THIS FC SPENT MOST OF ITS LIFE IN CALIFORNIA WHICH IS WHY IT IS SO PRESERVED. I WAS TOLD IT WAS A CAMPER WHICH IS WHY IT IS IN SUCH GOOD SHAPE. MILEAGE SHOWS 25K AND I BELIEVE IT TO BE FAIRLY ACCURATE BUT CAN NOT GUARANTEE THAT. IT HAS BEEN SLIGHTLY CUSTOMIZED.
UPDATE: **SOLD** WAs $5000.
Looks good, but seller notes it could use a little more work to be really nice.
“1963 Willys Jeep FC 150 with parts. I have almost two sets of extra running gear. There is a hard to find windshield. The 1963 runs drives and stops but could use a restoration to be really nice.”
UPDATE: Still Available
This M-667 has been crossed with a 2006 Mitsubishi truck chassis.
“You are looking at a One of a kind 1964 Jeep setting on a 2006 Mitsubishi chassis with a 4 cylinder Turbo engine with 16,000 original miles and automatic transmission!!Yep, you read that right!! This is a 1964 Jeep, forward control M-677 Truck……she is sitting on a super straight frame that can be easily stretched. It is set up to haul a 5th wheel with its 8 foot western hauler bed, has an electric wench on the front, Tilt cab, cruise control, tilt wheel, ice cold air, a stereo system and even has reclining seats!!
The original Mitsubishi instruments and wiring were used during the construction. It was then taken to the local Mitsubishi dealer and checked to make sure everything was like it was supposed to be. It is titled as a 64 Jeep so the taxes and registration are a lot less than a 2006 Mitsubishi. She can do it all!! We are selling this vehicle for a customer who custom built this beauty. He informs me that he had close to $45,000 in the truck when he finished it. It would be a super truck to put a roll back bed, or a ramp car hauler bed on. You will certainly not meet yourself at a traffic light. I will consider a serious offer or an interesting trade. Give me a call so we can talk about how we can make my truck yours.”

“Got a 1957 jeep fc150 runs drive still needs work it is 4×4 got snow plow with it and it works”
