My ‘New” Olgesby Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

Thanks to Joe-in-Mesa for spotting, then buying/mailing me this great find out of an antique shop. He snagged it for $35. I’m happy with that price. It needs one of the windshield support arms fixed and some repainting, but otherwise it is in good shape.

After doing some research on eBay, I’ve discovered this one is a little different than the ones listed there or on the CJ-3B page. Those all seem to have a central hole in the back that’s used for pulling a trailer (see examples at the bottom of the post). Instead of a hole, this one has two slots (I found one other with two slots).

Here are some pics.

Anyone Know More About this FC-170 Toy?

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

UPDATE: Roger added the following information … Harold, the guy who sold me the FC Scale Model, said his Dad’s dealership was in Sherman Jeep in Maryland. His Dad had the dealership from approximately 1958 to 1985. He said when he was a kid he went with his Dad to Toledo, Ohio, to pick up new Jeeps.

Roger Martin purchased this metal FC-170 model the other day. It was owned by guy who owned a jeep dealership for twenty-five years. The owner kept this FC model on his desk. The size of this is 6 1/4″ long x 3″ wide x 2 3/4 tall. Obviously, the rear tires are incorrect … anyone know where rims and tires similar to the front wheels could be purchased?
