Here are some photos of John's 1961 FC 170 with a Clark Grain Body and Hoist. He purchased it at an estate auction in Brookston, Indiana from the original owner. It had 17,300 miles on it. The Jeep was sold new in Lafayette, Indiana in 1961 by Fireproof Garage - possibly a Chrysler Dealership. At the time of the original purchase, the grain bed was installed at Linden, Indiana.

After John purchased the Jeep in September 2010, he corrected items of concern - new brakes and lines, fuel pump, along with rebuilding the existing generator. All the accessories are in working condition - cigarette lighter, horn, lights. The cab interior and the exterior paint on the cab and bed are original.

Very nice original truck!
