so here goes, posting here so that i can share with everybody. a week ago, a friend texted me a picture. his neighbor knew a guy that knew a guy, that knew a 70+ year old farmer that came to the realization that he will never finish all the stuff he has going on and was purging everything that wasn't used. the picture that started it just said Jeepster, this guy wants $250.00 dollars. well, it wasn't a jeepster, and ive been lusting after an FC for a few years now. i got the guys #, and gave him a call. he wanted $300.00. i asked if it had a title, he said yes, i said sold. i called in sick to work the next day, drove the 45 minutes to his place and paid him the money. next step was to figure out how to get it home. the following saturday i borrowed my Father laws truck and car trailer and went back to the guys house. we used a large tractor to pull it out from the place its been sitting at the past 20+ years. initially we thought all 4 wheels were locked up but they just couldn't turn with the flat tires that were there. so, using two skid steers, the front end was picked up, and the truck/trailer was backed underneath. the FC was set down, and then a skidsteer was used to pick up the back end and shove it onto the the car trailer. the goal: get it in my shed, get it running. clean it up and see where i am at. then i can decide if i want to spend the cash on brakes, engine stuff, etc. as for aftermarket support, there are two options 1. The Forward Forum this is an old-school chat forum from the dial up, AOL days. . nothing like ECJ5.com. 2. The FC Connection this is a website more for the "braggers" with very nice forward controls, worthy of their own website. what i know for sure: it was a plow/tow truck. taking all of that plow stuff off. i hate seeing old jeeps with plows on them. it hasn't run in a lot of years. it is VERY rusty. there is next to zero aftermarket support for it. the glass is mostly good, but i can get that, if that time ever comes there is a guy on youtube Brian, or metalshaper, that is restoring a FC cab. he made all of the body parts. i have watched his videos. he wont sell any body panels. he had too many complaints from people whose crusty old cabs didnt match his better than new body panels. known Mechanics: 134F head motor t90 transmission Dana 18 transfer case Dana 44 front and rear axles neat winch in the bed. (this was a plow and tow truck) 250lb cast iron counterweight in the back, so it doesnt tip onto its face in the event of fast stops. picture will come as they are taken. if anybody needs any reference pictures for their FC150, let me know, i will gladly help out. so..if you know about any FC body parts, or parts cabs located near WI, let me know too, okay?
