FC-150 & FC-170 Diesel Ishpeming, Mi Make Offer

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

UPDATE2:  Still Available

UPDATE:  Craig confirms that this is a FC-170 DRW; it’s unclear if the diesel is original or if it is a replacement engine (rather than a M-676 with a Cerlist Diesel.)

“I have an FC 150 and an FC 170 that will be sold as a pair. The FC 170 has no motor, trans or transfer case. It was a RARE factory diesel with a Gafner loader. It has a GVW of 9000# with Dana axles. Found a bell housing and flywheel in the cab so I assume it is off the diesel. Odometer shows 7500 miles. The FC 150 is pretty much complete except for the seats. It has a 4 cylinder F134 motor that will be rebuilt shortly. It has the standard bore and reground crank and bearings to match. Waitng for a front seal and valve stem seals. Odometer shows 21,500 miles. I am just stating what the odometers say, don’t know if it is the actual miles or not. Both Jeeps last plated around 1973-74.  I am open to REASONABLE OFFERS. I am not going to give these away so don’t waste my time. I do have more pics if you are serious.”

Saturday at the Midwest Willys Reunion

• CATEGORIES: News • TAGS: , .

While it was cold and rainy, mixed with, gulp, a little snow here in Boise, weather improved out in Ohio for the Midwest Willys Reunion.  Both Bob and Brian snapped a variety of images and gave their own perspectives

Bob writes, “Much better weather today in the mid 70s. There looked to be about 100 Jeeps of all sorts today. There were lots of Cj2as and 3as, three CJ3Bs, and lots of truck and wagons. A whole lot to look at!  The little Jeep dispatcher [the red jeep a few pics down] was very cool and sold for around $5500. Also, there were lots of parts to be had. Tomorrow is supposed to be in the high 80s.”

Hey Bob, what is sticking out of the side of the yellow flattie? Is it an air cleaner?  Is the ‘windshield’ glass or plexiglass?

What’s the color on this flattie, red or orange or a blend?  I like the color.  Nice dually, too!

This is the DJ-3A that sold.  Are these DJ-3A windshields taller than a CJ-3B windshield?  Or were they simply re-purposed for the DJ-3A?

I’m assuming that is an aftermarket bumper?  I can’t say I’ve seen one of these on any jeeps for sale that I have seen.

Brian seemed to be captivated by the trucks and wagons during this visit.  He captured some great pics of Chad’s project (Chad received the Toledo Brick award, something the Reunion staff has been doing for several years now. It’s a brick from the old Jeep plant in Toledo.) and a pic of his favorite at the show, this wagon below (click on the pic to get a much larger pic).

Here’s images of Chad’s truck:

And 2 other wagons:

1961 FC-170 Dually Marysvale, Ut **SOLD**

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

UPDATE:  This was bought for the ‘buy it now’ price of $8000.  Thanks Dennis!

(11/24/09) I like it, in part because it looks like it still gets used.  Marysvale is deep in the middle of Utah.  I’ve never been there, but I’ve been jeeping out of Mt. Pleasant above Marysville.  I’ve also flown over that area a number of times and scoped it out pretty well (you can see a variety of trails from above) with the idea that I’d go jeeping there at some point.  Also, the San Rafael Swell is a good area to explore also and is ignored by most tourists (or used to be).

“Willys Jeep FC-170. Dually flatbed. Purchased restored & used as light duty ranch truck. Stored inside. Still in nice condition. Has stock engine & transmission, 4wd. Was previously used as a parade vehicle but now carries a Lincoln welder (not included). Interior is all redone with blue velour seats. Runs & starts good in warm weather. It is not run in the winter. There are external exhaust pipes on each rear corner of the cab – sounds great too. This truck shows 80,000 miles but seller cannot guarantee actual milage.”

• CATEGORIES: CJ5 • TAGS: .

I haven’t seen many dually CJ-5s.

“1969 CJ-5 Jeep Dually, 4cyl, 3sp unit with a dana 70 rearend. Jeep originally had a trencher unit mounted to it. The trencher is long gone, sorry. Jeep has low mileage and runs well. New rebuilt carb, recent tires, new battery, new brakes (currently a little spongy, will bleed before auctins end), heater(aftermarket), wiring harness (painless), etc. Not perfect, but a nice driver or property/Town vehicle. It has a clear VT registration and has been on the road recently. Body in very good condition, some small dents, coarse body work and paint. Frame is straight and clean and retains its full side plate reinforcements from the trencher. Drivetrain all sounds and looks good with a few leaks. Motor runs well, but smokes on start up and a little bit when running …”
