This seldom-seen survivor underwent a complete, frame-on restoration in 2015. Dressed in President Red with Glacier White trim, the paint and trim are in overall excellent shape, as expected. The truck?s bodywork is straight and solid, with the engine peeking between the two front seats. The engine bay was in satisfactory shape while the black cargo bed looks great and ready for a load or two! The black front bumper fits well and offers contrast to the exterior paint colors. Up front is a dealer-installed power take-off winch. On the passenger side aft of the cab is a side-mounted spare tire and wheel. This truck rolls on Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain tires, size 245/75R16 at every corner and the spare is a Firestone LT tire, size 245/75R16. All five tires are mounted to white wheels without any wheel covers. This truck has a 103-inch wheelbase, a 7,000 GVWR and a 108-inch cargo bed. Nestled between the seats is a 226 CID Super Hurricane straight six-cylinder engine. Backing this motor is a Borg-Warner T-90 three-speed manual transmission and a Spicer two-speed transfer case. This truck has a Spicer 44F front axle with a 4.89:1 ratio and a Spicer 53 semi-floating rear axle with a 4.88:1 ratio. Inside, the gray bucket seats look great and offer great contrasts to the red, metal dash, white floor and gray inner door liners. A gray headliner and a black, three-spoke steering wheel also stand out. A set of triplet aftermarket gauges are mounted below the dash and both the transmission and transfer case have floor levers. The fuel, temperature, speedometer, and odometer are inop. The Jeep Forward Control is a truck that was produced by Willys Motors, later named Kaiser Jeep, from 1956 to 1965. It was also assembled in other international markets. The layout featured a cab over (forward control or FC) design. The FC layout offered advantages including a short turning radius and large cargo bed size given the compact overall length. The Forward Control models were primarily marketed as work vehicles for corporate, municipal, military, as well as civilian use. Regular pickup box beds were standard and customers were offered many ?Jeep approved? specialized bodies from outside suppliers. These ranged from simple flatbeds to complete tow trucks, dump trucks, and fire trucks. It?s ironic that Willys/Kaiser got out of the Forward Control business?the last of the FC-150s and 170s were built in 1964?about the same time the Big Three were introducing their own cab-over pickups and vans! Competition to this Willys in 1960 included Chevrolet?s K10 pickup, Dodge?s C-series W-100 4x4, Ford?s F-100 4x4, GMC?s K1000 pickup and International?s B-120 4x4. If you?re a Willys-Jeep fan, a truck collector or someone who seeks a novel vehicle to advertise your small business, you can?t go wrong with this Willys FC-170 at MotoeXotica Classic Cars.
