“1959 Jeep FC-170 flatbed truck 4×4 12 volt system .”
Ron alerted me to Headquake’s RC vehicles with hand-carved wood bodies. He’s made quite a few different ones. Below is a video of an FC he made. There are more on his Facebook page.
Agustin is selling this FC.

1957 Willys FC 170. VERY RARE! This is an all original driver! We did convert it to 12v but we do have the original parts to go back if you want to. This is a flat head 6 cylinder engine with a 3 spd transmission. Will need tires due to dry rot and some brake work. There is some rust but very repairable. All lights work, runs, drives excellent! (For a 1957 anyway:). Feel free to ask any questions, thanks for looking! $3800, 76 5 470 2 1 seven 5, call or text. The wheels and tires in the bed are not included in the price. I bought them new for the Willys but decided to take them off. 35/12.50-15 Dick Cepek MT, $1100 new, will take $800.”
I took a look at this. I can send some other pics (Ann took them, but she’s busy at the moment so I can’t add them). If you have questions, drop me an email or contact Frank (see info below).
Frank and I tried to start it, but it didn’t start. It turned over strong and I verified a spark. It was getting gas, so I suspected it was flooded (and it was very cold outside). After I left Frank told me he was able to start it. It has a four speed and comes with an extra four speed (unsure of condition).
The front floors have a few holes as seen in the pic below (passenger side). I did not find any holes in the back rear corners.
Frank told me his brother had several jeeps. He may have assembled this DRW out of some of those parts or it may have been assembled by the previous. The issue is the serial number of 61568 23017, which, as I understand it, is a for an FC-170 rather than a Dually. Were FC-170s converted at the factory? I didn’t check for serial numbers and didn’t learn about the serial number issue until after I left.
From original ad: This FC is being sold by Frank King. The jeep runs and drives, but does need a spray of starter fluid to get going. The owner fixed up the exterior, but didn’t touch the interior. It includes an FC-170 bed that wouldn’t have been original to the dually. You can contact Frank at 509 999 6544 or email him at Frankckingatty@aol.com.
Engine runs, but tank needs cleaning.
“This is not a j20 but a Jeep FC 170 cabover 3/4 ton pickup. Pretty much original, has an oversized fuel tank mounted in original location. The tank needs to be cleaned. Engine runs good from aux fuel source. odometer shows under 20,000 mi. Seats are at upholsterer to be covered in red fabric. Very little rust.
the pickup has not been driven in a long time, perhaps decades. No text or email, please , I cannot respond. ”
UPDATE: Price dropped to $4000.

(07/28/2015) It’s just the cab.
“Willys jeep cab Would be cool with a flatbed.
would be a cool rock crawler or toy hauler, lift it, lower it , hot rod it. Really cool jeep project would be awesome with a 12 valve or 24 valve cummins diesel.
trades welcome 2500 obo I can also do a full build.rat rod trade cab over Coe”
Mike pointed this FC my direction. Note the well done window system replacement. Looks like a Fairmont setup. Maybe this was a Hy-Rail at some point??
