Re: FC 170 serial number identification
The S/N you gave suggests that your truck was built 7 units after the 1961/1962 FC170 stakebody (delivery date: Nov. 21, 1961) that thefcconnection.com's Craig Brockhaus has/had several years ago, at the time Danny Hartling listed his FC170 registry, that is now located at http://web.archive.org/web/20071118101906/http://jeepfc.www5.50megs.com/registry/fc170reg.htm#drw
That's a guess, as some would say, since the Jeep numbers are noted by some folks as not being reliably sequential.(?) Beyond that... IDK; just kinda need to look on your truck for evidence of original paint, interior colors & whether any driveline and/or suspension components appear to have been replaced.
Good luck on excavating/reconstructing your truck's history!
Another good page to check out is accessed through Danny Hartling's Forward Control Jeep Page go to his FC Registry Page and look for "How Many Forward Controls Were Built" Link (do not know if it will work) http://web.archive.org/web/20070703110157/http://jeepfc.www5.50megs.com/howmany/howmany.htm
As the subject line says I need some help nailing down some info on my jeep using the serial number any info gathered or a good source to find it would be much appreciated!
Serial number 61568 22014
Gross vehicle weight 7000
