1957 Jeep FC-150 – Clay Center, KS

 1

Seller offering a 1957 Jeep FC-150 with undisclosed miles for $4,500. It looks like it has been sitting in a field for some time but overall the pictures show the body to be intact and glass is not broken.  Close inspection of the pictures it looks like the interior is gone.   This is one of several Jeeps the seller is offering – this one has a potential buyer from AZ coming to look at the vehicle on 6/28.  Thank you Samantha for forwarding links and pictures.

The Jeep FC-150 was introduced in 1957.  The “FC” stood for “Forward Control” which was unique for its time.  The FC-150 provided the capacity of larger trucks (a 6′ bed) on a wheelbase of 81″ (the same as the CF-5) and overall length of 147.5″ (2″ less than Nash’s tiny two-seat Metropolitan).  Powered by a Jeep Hurricane F-head 4-cylinder engine it produced 75 hp.  A lower compression version was offered for higher altitudes along with a larger FC-170 with a larger engine and wheelbase.  A 3-speed manual transmission came standard and an 4-speed manual was available.   Jeep claimed the go-anywhere FC series could climb gades of up to 60 percent.   Checkout seller’s listing on Craigslist for contact information.
