Yet another FC150, courtesy of BaT


I cannot lie, the first two articles about these scary awesome forward control 4x4s had me enthralled as I had never seen nor heard of one.  There is just something about them that makes me want to throw on some boots and a heavy flannel jacket, toss my chainsaw in the back and disappear into the wilderness for a few months.

And the third installment of our FC150/170 obsession appears to be the cleanest so far.  According to the seller, in the last 15 years it has had quite alot of parts rebuilt/replaced and has the documents to back it up. 

This is the kind of thing every hoon needs for parts fetchin’ in the summer, deer gettin’ in the fall and all-out hoonin in the winter.

  1. I saw this earlier today on BaT and nearly soiled myself. These are seriously rad and I would totally rock one as a parts truck if/when I get a project car.

  2. I actually discovered these things a couple of years ago via some of the online stuff that goes along with the TV show Lost. go here and scroll down to the Jeep: http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Apollo_Candy_Comp… Unfortunately a Jeep FC150 hasn't been featured on the show yet.
    Actually saw one for sale right down the road from me about a year ago. It had a Chevy small block conversion. It was gone before I could get pictures.

  4. I've always loved the looks of these little FC Jeeps. With the low bed, it would be great for going out to the hills and hauling wood to my shop. It might be a bit scary on the freeway though.

    1. Scary as hell on the freeway. These are built on the same frame as the contemporary CJ's, which mean that they have the same F-head four cylinder, good for maybe 45 MPH on a good day. However, these are made for the rough, where hauling wood is where this little jewel would shine above hauling ass.
      I agree, I'd love one of these. One of the funkiest and rarest Jeeps ever. Still, it's a Jeep and will go wherever you need, but slowly.
