Bantam BRC-60 Vac-U-Cast VS-105 Model Jeep on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, toys

It is only $20 (includes shipping). This Vac-U-Cast VS-105 “Bantam Prototype 2” model tempted me. But then I spotted the “Bantam Prototype 1” Vac-U-Cast model jeep. I went with that instead.

1963 FC-170 Indianapolis, IN **SOLD**

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

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was auctioned for $17,500.

Blaine shared this Bring-A-Trailer auction for a nice looking FC-170. I love the old school washer bag hanging from the dash. I have an OEM foot actuated bag in Patterson, but don’t have pics at the moment; instead, here are pics of the Allstate washer bag that came with Patterson.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1963-jeep-fc-170/

“This 1963 Jeep FC-170 is finished in two-tone red and white over beige vinyl and is powered by a 226ci Super Hurricane inline-six paired with a three-speed manual transmission and a two-speed transfer case. The truck is equipped with a bed-mounted spare, a hydraulic plow frame, and a rear-mounted winch. The selling dealer acquired the truck in 2017, and service during their ownership included an oil change and replacement of the brake lines as well as the rear brake drums and hardware. This Kaiser-built Jeep Forward Control is now offered in Indiana with a clean Pennsylvania title.”

August 1953 Article “Jeeps Goes International”

• CATEGORIES: Features, Magazine

I bought this August 1953 issue of Cars magazine for the jeep article, but it also has all kinds of interesting information in it. The article “The Jeep Goes International” by Evan Jones highlights how various companies in different countries were capitalizing on the demand for jeep vehicles by manufacturing jeep-like vehicles of their own. The story discusses the new Austin Champ, the Fiat Campagnola, the Land Rover, and the Delahaye V.I.R.

Fabulous Tuckers Museum & Road Show

• CATEGORIES: Features

The jeep-related story in the August 1953 issue of Cars Magazine was interesting, but what really caught my eye was reading a letter-to-the-editor by someone named Nick Jenin. In his short note, he mentioned that he owned five Tucker Torpedo cars and operated a museum called “The Fabulous Tuckers” in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Jenin purchased a total of ten Tuckers between 1952 and 1957. Jenin loved his Tuckers, enough to operate a traveling Tucker show that was also called the “Fabulous Tuckers”. TheOldMotor.com website has some great vintage photos of the traveling road show.
