Craig spotted this running and driving FC with a dump bed.
“Putting my FC back out on the market. Here are some details.
Original L-226 super hurricane engine. It runs and drives fine, just needs the carter yf carburetor rebuilt. I have a rebuild kit that’ll go with it. It has typical FC rust on the cab corners, floor boards, and windshield frame. It has a hydraulic dump bed. Ramsey P.T.O. Ramsey winch (not attached). 4wd works. Text or call for any questions. 6,500 o.b.o utv trades may be considered.”
This has a dump bed.
“1948 WILLYS JEEP PICKUP, THIS IS A GREAT WORK TRUCK. 6 CYL 226 HURRICANE, FLAT HEAD. THE DRIVE LINE HAS 35000 MILES ON IT. THE ENGINE RUNS GREAT. THE ENGINE HAS BEEN TUNED UP, WATER PUMP HAS BEEN REPLACED. THE ENGINE DOES NOT SMOKE OR USE OIL, OR LOOSE WATER. TRANSMISSION IS A THREE SPEED MANUEL. TRANSFER CASE IS A HIGH LOW RANGE. THE TRANSMISSION AND TRANSFER CASE SHIFT AND DRIVES WELL IN ALL GEARS.

THE BATTERY IS NEW; THE CHARGING SYSTEM IS A GENERATOR. ALL OF THE LIGHTS WORK. THE STEERING LINKAGE IS TIGHT AND DOES NOT NEED ANY REPAIR.

Looks nice. Has a Dump-O-Matic dump bed.
“Vintage Willys pick-up. Dump-O-Matic. Original Willys “Hurricane 6″ flat head motor, rebuilt 1000 miles ago with overdrive unit. Rust-free New Mexico truck. All gauges work except for odo.”
Steve spotted this unique dump hoist.
“Antique Dump Hoist For Willy’s Jeep Utility Pick up, 1/2 ton, late 1950’s to early 1960’s, with 226 inline 6 engine.
Had this hoist installed on a 1953 Willy’s Utility Pickup, Belt driven, with mechanical clutch.
Now the hoist is installed on a custom utility trailer built with a 1960 Willy’s Utility Wagon Frame and is operated with an electric power unit.
Have engine driven pump, tank, and hoist.
Have original manufacturer parts, installation, and instruction books plus some original blueprints.
The cylinders had to be replaced due to damage from moisture. The new cylinders are of the same dimensions and the cylinder bases were reused to retain the same mounting to the hoist frame.
This hoist will only fit the old style Willy’s Utility Pick up.
Cash is desired. Can arrange for shipping, but cost of shipping is above the asking price, and payment is required in advance.”
Here are a couple brochures of the Garwood:
UPDATE: Still Available
(07/21/2016) Doesn’t appear to be running.
“I have a rare 1961 Willy’s Jeep Pick up Truck FC-170, Manual 4-speed, 6-226 “Super Hurricane” was a L-head 6-cylinder.
UPDATE: Still Available.
(12/18/2016) “Fully restored fc150 with custom dump body. Original flat 4cyl completely gone through. Have over $25,000 in receipts just for the restoration. Real head turner!! Make me an offer!”
Craig spotted this one. Might have some value, especially if it has dually adapters.
“Here’s something you won’t see everyday – a 1951 Willys pickup that has (we think) a 1948 Chevy dually diff with a pto powered dump bed powered by a ’50s Ford Flathead V8 engine. What a Frankenstein. We actually spent a lot of time rebuilding the carb and distributor and getting it all set up. Ran like a champ for about a minute until a valve stuck. Heads are currently off, but machined and ready to reinstall. To make it easier we got another ’50’s Ford Flathead that turns freely and ought to run that goes with it as a spare.
It’s as unusual as they get. Body is fair. This could be a great yard truck with very little work.”
It’s not much to look at, but it runs, has a snow plow, and has a dump bed.
“This truck needs a lot of repairs a nd some TLC. The clutch needs replacing. It has rust. It does run but needs tuning. The truck is equipped with a factory snow plow and a dump box. 6 cylinder Flat Head engine. Not sure of the year. Pictures tell the story”
Looks nice and has a dump bed.
“Award winning frame off restoration done 5 years ago truck is still in impeccable condition.”
UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3500.
Runs and dumps.
“1954 Willys Truck with dump body and plow. Super Hurricane 6. Fun and useful; runs well and useful for winter plowing or when you need a small dump truck. Has newer tires. Frame needs some work.”

Greg’s great looking truck.
“As some of you may know, I’ve had the FC bug for some time thanks to my buddy Jason turning me on to them. Over the last few years I’ve gathered what I consider a pretty sweet little collection but now it’s time to trim the herd. I don’t have enough room to store them properly so it’s time for someone else to enjoy! The first one going up is prolly the least “FC” of em all but definitely super cool and definitely the fastest. The only part FC I could find is the cab with the rest including the frame custom made. It sports a strong 351 Cleveland backed by an automatic. Trans cooler, Mickey Thompson’s, air shocks in front with onboard air compressor, custom fuel cell, sun roof. power windows. It does have a couple areas that could use attention at some point. The paint could use some freshening up and I have attached pics of a couple of the scratches/cracks. Also the power windows are not working properly.
If you have any specific questions or want pics of other areas not shown please ask and I’ll try to respond quickly.”

Rich spotted this one.
“Duel smoke stack

There were several articles that made the June 1955 issue of Willys News worth purchasing, even if the price was higher than I wanted. Case in point is the gravity dump box idea below. Perhaps someone can recreate this rare mod?

Here’s an unusual setup.
“Owned by a local irrigation district and used to haul concrete to canal since the 60’s. Back has been cut out to allow dump to operate and passenger seat is gone so dump parts could be placed there, Engine does not appear to be original but runs and was maintained but needs a good tune up. Spent 200 on rebuilding dump so I could haul concrete threw narrow openings and haul rocks. Have not used it since I rebuilt it but did try it a few times. Dents from years of abuse. Original stars. No data plates or title. Irrigation district lost title and some dumb deputy told them to sell it to get a salvage only paperwork. Tried to explain to them what they did but they were not getting it. Said this is fine since it was told to them by a deputy. I do have a bill of sale. And if you can get them to understand great. Does have numbers on frame. I wanted to trade it for a Minelab metal detector or a White Detector and probe and hoops worth about 1500. ie: a V3i white or Minelab Safari. Might have tail light covers and a few smalls that go with the M38A1. (Triangle on back not included)”
The seller indicates a variety of items are new or rebuilt.
“62 Jeep FC170, engine, radiator, generator, starter, brakes, wiring, frame, susp, fuel tank, trans, front end, rear end & transfer case either new or rebuilt, $8,900, Bill 802-429-2076, Wells River, VT”
It runs, has a dump bed, and is a dually.
“This oldie but goodie runs,

This looks like a good price.
