1963 Willys FC-170This 1963 Willy's Jeep FC-170 is a strong running example of the company's medium wheelbase Forward Control model, This FC-170 is powered by a super reliable and ready for work and fun 226ci Super Hurricane motor.
It's rare to find these trucks in nice condition today as most were worked very hard and then cast aside. This FC-170 was expertly painted in the popular factory offered combination of red and cream. This example retains its proper tailgate markings and factory badging. Glass is in good condition as well, a big plus as good replacements are difficult to find. The side-mounted spare and un-incorporated tail lights complete the look.
Used primarily for fair weather weekend driving this truck looks just as it did when restored. The FC-170 model offered a nice compromise between looks and utility, as shorter 150's have less cargo space and longer 180 and 190's tend to look a bit stretched and ungainly.
Inside the cab things are nicely kept and almost entirely OEM. All gauges, lights and switches work as designed, including the interesting single digit scaled speedometer.
Power comes from a Continental Super Hurricane L-head straight six. Displacing 226 cubic inches and rated for about 110 HP and 190 lb. ft. at very low revs, this one starts easily, runs smoothly and offer excellent reliability. Power is distributed through a floor-shift 3-speed manual and hi/lo range transfer case, and all four tires are new.
This Unique Willy's FC-170 amazingly comes with its original New Jersey Title. This is an outstanding opportunity to own a unique and highly sought after chapter in Jeep History.
