Jeep FC-170

There is a truck in my past that I would love to own. In late 1957 my dad bought a Jeep FC-170
stake body truck. He "customized" it by adding a Cantastoga top he built himself. This truck brought my newborn sister home during the winter of 1958 - Feb 14th. My mom drove it to church with me and my brothers in the back. My dad hauled milk in the days of milk cans, later he would carry construction supplies. I remember riding with him, sometimes on the engine hood placed between the front seats. It was a neat truck, white on blue cab - black stakes, and that white top covering the rear.

I have looked online to find one - only to come up with this picture:


  1. your mother drove this to church?

  2. I really like your blog. It does bring back memories from my early childhood (1960-1965) when a lot of 1950s trucks still crawled the roads. Thanks.

  4. I had 1958 FC-170 stake body in upstate New York exactly like the one in this picture, same color green, it was a great woods truck !! Wish I still had it.

    I have recently aquired a 1962 Jeep forward control F170. It is presently on the road but the body is a little rough. I need help in finding a value and may be interested in selling. Thanks for any help.
