well then, offer the equivalent value in scrap if he is going to scrap them. these trucks aren't in high demand, so they do not command high prices. sure, they didn't make too many of them, so that can drive the price up to someone that wants one, but again....there really is no market for the FC. people either love them or hate them.
if you have one 170, then that would be something to have, for parts on hand.
the FC150 is a 57, so that indicates (i think) a narrow track, low tunnel version. not the desirable style 150 that the FC nuts prefer. if all of the glass is intact on both, and you have room to spare, buy them both for 500 bucks and be happy.
no title may be a big deal to you. idk the laws in your area about obtaining a lost title. but it is a bargaining chip in your favor.
in WI, you cant even scrap a car without a title. here you would have to cut it into pieces and then scrap it. not worth the time to most...
interested to hear how this works out for you. keep us posted!
I am gouing this weekend to look at a coulpe FC's
First on is a FC150. 1957 year no engine or transmission.
All glass is there but has some goasting around edges.
Second one is A FC170 duel wheel flatbed. It also has no engine or trans.
The glass is all there and it has rust.
No title for eather ones. these are New Mexico trucks used on a ranch.
What would be the value of these trucks.
The owner would like the to go to somebody that can rebuild them and not to the scrap heap.
I already have a 1961 FC170
