Here's a picture of the FC-170 that Henry got for his birthday last December, 2012. It was a present from his wife! All I can say is Woooo Hoooo!! Henry, you've got a "Keeper" there! Don't let her (your wife) get away! I was going to fill you in with my own words but Henry puts it so nicely I saw no need for editing. Sounds like the old gal (your truck!) is gonna get a second chance at earning its own keep, I like that!
"The truck is a 1959, I don't know much about FC's in
general but this one has a working heater blower (way out of balance with dirt
dauber nests in squirrel cage), marginally working vacuum wipers, brand new
Firestone ND tires. (thanks again to my wife) The one key actually fits
both the doors and the ignition which was a surprise to me. Is this is
typical of FC's? Engine cover support sort of works, I have a knot on my
head to prove it lets go unexpectedly. Previous owner left an ammo can
with spare voltage regulator, points, condenser, rotor, generator brushes &
bushings, fan belt etc. as well as spare radiator hoses. The electrical
stuff is in original Echlin boxes, orange with the bear logo that I remember
from watching Dad work on family cars when I was a kid. There was also a
complimentary can of wasp/hornet spray."
