Misc --My truck was delivered as the deluxe cab and is equipped with a dealer installed, 7 foot Meyer plow with manual 5 position angle. The stock pickup body rotted away and is replace with a homemade 6.5' flatbed/stake.
Current / Future Projects -- This FC-150 is my current project. Possible future projects include an early 1960s FC-170 Dual Rear Wheel if suitable project vehicle can be found and early 60s CJ-3B Universal, again if suitable vehicle can be found.
Clubs/Trails --The Willys Club
Other Jeeps Owned -- None, though my dad drove an early 60s CJ-3B till about 1972 and that is why I would like to find such a vehicle to restore. :I am really interested in the Jeeps built by Willys-Overland and Willys Motors and like to see and read about stock restorations/rebuilds. I generally don't care for the "souped-up" Jeeps with V-8s and fat tires etc...
