This FC-170 is owned by Cecil De Loach and resides at Hook and Ladder Winery, Santa Rosa, CA.


Paul Barry, owner of Willys America did the restoration.  They bought it from Larry Munther in New Jersey.  Prior to "Berkeley Heights" owning it belonged to the USAF-Greenland and everything was encrusted with thick insulation. Cecil wanted it to promote his winery, we removed the tank and pump which were rusted out and missing parts and created storage cabinets in the pump housing area and remade the hose bed to allow for wine case transport or tourist rides on benches.  Paul added the siren/ front and rear lights, sandblasted and painted the entire truck, re-did all the mechanicals.  Cecil added a winery logo to the sides and doors not shown in the images.  It can be seen daily in front of the winery.
