1958 FC-170 Dodge City, Ks $2500

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

UPDATE:  This is now priced at $2500 and listed at Jeeptruck.com (was on eBay)

“Here is a 1958 FC 170 that has been in the shed for 30 yrs.  It was my grandpa’s and he has passed away so now it is up for sale.  I don’t know what year he bought it and i don’t know much about the history except that the last job he used it for was to fix the pasture fence.  I know this because i cleaned out the fence posts and barbed wire.  My mom said he always really loved this truck b/c it was his first four wheel drive.  the last date on the tag is 1980 so i would say that is when he quite driving it.  I got it out a week ago to get it ready to sell.  I blew off the motor, checked the oil and air filter, oiled the pistons, put in a battery, checked for spark, rigged up a small gas tank (i did not was to run any old gas through the carb) and then i turned the key.  It started right up and my brother and i were taking turns driving it around the farm!  this is a cool old truck.  So needless to say the vehicle runs and drives.  I shifted through all the gears in the transmission and it all felt good.  looks like the back seal on the engine is leaking.  the brakes do not work.  tires are old but hold air, one goes down in a day or so.  I can start it for you if you buy it, but i am keeping the battery.  I am not sure of the actual miles on this jeep and i don’t recall what the odometer reads so give me a call and i’ll go look at it.  the bed is pretty rusty, especially in the front and on the side tubes.  the cab looks to be in good shape except for down low on the back sides, see pics.  No rust to speak of around the windshield.  a dent in the front and some other digs and dents around the vehicle, see pics and call if you want more info.  the glass is all good except for passenger window.  If that is not enough info I would be happy to tell you more.  call me, Jake, @ 620-339-0580.  I would like a deposit of $50.00 within 48 hr and and would prefer the remainder in cash.  Please no scams and i can’t tell you what the reserve is.  If you like please bid.”

More Images from the McArthur Museum

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Women & Jeeps

You can view the first group of images here and learn more about their history. he MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History in Little Rock, Ar, only exhibits one jeep (shown below), but they do have a variety of WWII Jeep photos in their archive, many of which include captions.  Here are 9 of them.  The photos are part of the Allison Collection of World War II Photographs, the captions of which come from the ACME wire service.

The caption for the image below is: Yanks Hunt Eggs (CQ) in France
France—Holding a lettered board written in French and meaning “have you any eggs?” two Yanks ride in a Jeep and hope for a positive answer from French girls in the city of Rumegies, France. Driver and sign holder is Pvt. Maury Sanders of Corinth, Miss. The other Yank, Pvt. Albert Frank, Burlington, VA., looks on.  Credit: Army radiotelephoto from ACME.

The Caption for the image below is: On one of the most dramatic journeys recorded in the annals of the war, so far, Lt. Gen. Joseph W. Stillwell, at the head of a band of 114 Americans, Burmese nurses, Chinese, Indians, Britons and Anglo-Indians, covered 140 grueling miles on their retreat from Wuntho, Burma, which began on May 4th, 1942. For days the band struggled through the torturous heat of the dense malaria-infested swamps and jungles of Burma, to reach the banks of the Uyu River, where they were forced to abandon the few Jeeps and trucks they had, to proceed on home-made rafts, down the river to the Chindwin and Thenge to Imphal on the Indian frontier. They arrived at their destination, Dinjan, India with only a few cases of malaria and heat exhaustion. Considering what they had been through, their journey was remarkably successful. Here, in a series of 25 official U.S. Army photos, just arrived from India, the story of the retreat is graphically presented.  New York Bureau
This bridge was repaired by the Chinese on time, and Major General Franklin C. Sibert, starts ahead of the first Jeep in the column.

Cavalry Man Jumping a Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

A writer, and ‘recovering ranch girl’, named Tamara Linse wrote a nice bit of history about the 115th Cavalry Horse Mechanized, which was a National Guard unit from Wyoming that served in WWII.

She notes that early resources were scare.  She writes, “The 115th Cavalry was activated nine months before war was officially declared. The entire 115th Cavalry Regiment, all 1,086 men, was inducted into federal service on February 24, 1941, the day they boarded a train for Fort Lewis, Washington.

Like all wartime training facilities, Fort Lewis was unprepared for the influx of soldiers. The men trained with stove pipes for cannons, sticks and brooms for rifles, and jeeps marked “TANK” for enemy armored vehicles. Aircraft used sacks of flour for bombs.”

She also mentions that while some soliders were excited to see the new jeeps, motorcyles, and other mechanized vehicles, other soliders would only give up their horses when you pulled their reins from their (I hesitate to say cold, dead) hands.

In the article, she includes an image, courtesy of the Wyoming State Archives, which shows a horse jumping a jeep.  You can check out the entire article here. You might also like to read why/how Men are Like Plants.
