1957 & 1961 FC-170s Bremerton, WA $600

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Here’s a great price on parts.

“Up for sale is a rare red 1961 Jeep FC-170 3/4-ton pickup truck. Included in the sale is an additional green 1957 Jeep FC-170 parts truck. Price is for both trucks. The green truck has no title.

Both trucks are currently in pretty rough shape and need restoration. Not driving currently, but there is still alot to work with. I had intended to use the green one for parts to restore the red one, but lack of time and family obligations force the sale. I additionally do have the drivers door that is missing from the red one in the picture.

The 1961 FC-170 has a 327 ci Chevy V8 swapped in, with an aluminum v8 to jeep adapter plate and the stock 3 speed T90 transmission and two speed Spicer 18 transfer case. The other FC-170 has no engine (has same transmission and a transfer case as the other but had an overdrive that has been removed). Both trucks have the stock axles front and rear.

Lots of potential to make a very cool and unique truck. I need the space and will begin disassembly to scrap these in a week or so unless I have something in the works, so act now.

Asking $600 OBO for the pair. Email or call (360)471-seven-four-eight-seven.”

1958 FC-170 Bozeman, MT Parting Out

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

This has the four speed. No pics provided.

“I have a 1958 Willies FC-170 that I’m parting out. I bought it for a major project and am only using the cab, so the engine, transmission, transfer case and axles all have to go. The engine is the 6-cyl Super Hurricane and it runs. When I bought it last December we drove it on and off the trailer. Transmission is the 4-spd manual. Everything works, I’m just building a new frame and repowering the thing so don’t need any of the old running gear.

I need it gone and really want to avoid recycling this stuff, so if you need some FC-170 parts, make me an offer for any of it. Email or call wiley at 310-894-6636″

1961 Wagon Traveller Little Rock, AR eBay

I don’t see many of these with the original seats.

View all the information on ebay




” Willys 1961 Traveler, if you’re looking you may already know the rarity of the Willys Traveler. If you are not I would suggest a good search of the internet, try “Willys production numbers” for a start. As if it wasn’t rare enough it has all the Civilian model Traveler specific parts in tact. I have been fooling with old Willys stuff since 1972 and have never seen one with all the pieces intact. It has the factory fold up rear bench seats, it has the roof mounted spare tire carrier, it has the rear sliding side windows, it has the step plate between rear bumper and the body all still attached. These ultra rare pieces are one of the things that makes it an ideal restoration candidate. The numbers are all correct for a 1961 Traveler and it comes with a good, clean title in my name. It’s 4 wheel drive with the desirable straight “6” 226 cubic inch flathead motor. The motor spins over by hand. the transmission and transfer case are in place.

Automobile Magazine Article


An ad for a 1946 CJ-2A referenced the following article from the July issue of Automobile Magazine. I expect this will fill a variety of CJ-2A sellers with visions of value where there might not be any. They assign a value of $12,500 to $20,000 for a restored CJ-2A and $12,000 to $18,000 for a restored CJ-3A. What they neglect to mention is how difficult it is to find a properly restored 2A or 3A.

“1946 JEEP WILLYS 2A with a 30’s chevy truck cab. It is a crazy looking piece but is in very good condition and is all original, other than the cab. I drove it into the garage and it is very restorable and has very minimal rust. I bought it with the idea of restoring it but I have a couple others and will never get around to this one. Price is firm, I could get more out of just parting it out but hate to see that happen.
