Eric sent in the picture of his ultra clean FC-170 Pickup.  It was originally built as a fire truck and came with a Ramsey PTO bumper.  Here's a few words from Eric on the origin of the truck and his future intentions.  Real nice setup!

"This is my 1961 Willys FC-170.  It was originally owned by the Newtown Fire Association in Newtown, Pennsylvania. It was their field truck/brush unit.  Newtown bought it as a stock truck, and had it converted by Trenton National Trailer Company in Trenton, New Jersey. It was the front line field truck until 1968 when it was replaced. It was then a reserve piece until 1978.  I bought it in 1982. The truck was still equipped as a field truck and all original (9800 miles).  It still has its original 6-cylinder, 3-speed, Ramsey winch, 300 gallon water tank and pump. It is still fully functional as a fire truck.  I plan on restoring it as original as possible."
