This is my 1961 Willys FC-170. It was originally owned by the Newtown Fire Association in Newtown, Pennsylvania. It was their field truck/brush unit. It still has its original 6-cylinder, 3-speed, Warn winch, 300 gallon water tank and pump. Though it doesn't fight field fires anymore, it is still fully functional as a fire truck.
1958 Willys FC-150 4wd - It's in rough shape, no brakes, though the drop plow works. It doesn't leave the neighborhood! I mainly use it to plow in winter, but the rear boom can pull engines, haul heavy scrap to my back yard like bad engines etc,. (I run a small auto repair faculity) It now has a 12V electrical charging, thanks to a donor subaru NAPA alternator, Free....minimal fab to do also.... I love it, get business too at times cause of the old beast, she is a worker... one last thing, it has 5.38:1 differentials...
1958 Willys FC-150 - Short wheel base, wider track FC-150 Willys Jeep. Full stock. Very good original condition. Though the vehicle has been passed down through the family we purchased it from, we are basically the second owners, as far as the
Jeep would consider. Most of it's life must have been under a good roof and with a careful eye on upkeep. It was used but not abused. Like all my fleet of antique vehicles it was a driver and as driven required attentions in my shop till a year later we could trust it to desert and mountain trips out from our farm or a journey across our own wetland to repair a fence. Now it puts on more miles in our remote North Eastern California outback than our other vehicles and is especially suited to the snow and ice of winter. Game watching is especially fun with the fishbowl of glass and closed cab heat on those 6 months of high desert cool temperatures. Now my
other classics collect dust in the barn while we put the FC to the test most every day.
