1959 FC-170 Vacaville, Ca $1750

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

If you can get this to fire up, it appears it would be a great price.  Note that this was for sale back in August of 2008 on eBay.  It’s not shown in the pics below, but there was some damage on the driver’s side.  Also, the seller said the engine ‘runs’ at that time.

“Complete Jeep FC 170 with tons of extra parts. Has been stored for a number of years but was running when parked. Converted to a 302 Ford v8 engine and auto trans but comes with complete original running super hurricane I6 engine, 3 sp trans and transfer case. Has custom flat bed on it now but an original comes with it. Call Alex at 707 704 4419 Might be willing to part out too. ”

1957 FC-150 Wilmington, NC eBay

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: .

Ok, I can’t resist … something’s fishy about this FC :-).  Actually, it looks in good, unrestored condition.  The paint job is certainly one-of-a-kind.

“This is one great little Jeep!  I bought this on Ebay almost 3 years ago and it has no doubt been my favorite out of the 30+ Jeeps that I have owned in the past several years. It has the stock drivetrain, 134ci F-head 4 cylinder, t-90 3 speed, dana spicer model 18 transfer case and dana axles.  The motor runs good no knocking, ticking or smoke.  Original 6 volt system.  4 wheel drive works fine: high and low and front locking hubs.  It has a warn winch with a good controller that was rigged to a battery and solenoid in the bed but I have never tried to operate it and the battery has been removed.  It has a heavy duty custom front bumper and the rear bumper is a custom tube air tank with a guage and air hose hook up to fill your tires, beach toys or run tools.  The tailgate opens and closes fine, windows go up and down and the doors shut very tightly.  There are no rattles or loose parts on this Jeep, it is solid.  The floorboards look like they have been patched with metal and there is a layer of outdoor carpet for insulation and rubber flooring over that.  The heater works, horn works and all guages work.  The seats are black vinyl, firm and in great shape except for a small hole in the back of the passenger seat.  The inside floor of the bed is flakey around the bottom edges but there is no rust through anywhere on this Jeep.  The frame of course has surface rust and maybe some pitting I guess you would say but is still very solid.  The rear cab corners have had new metal replaced on them but it is a very solid repair as well.  This is the first year these were made and it has the narrow track axles which I think make it look even more unique….”

The 1st Annual Rawhide Rumble Car Show & Swap Meet

• CATEGORIES: CJ-3A, FC150-FC170-M677, Website

In December of 2009, the ‘town’ of Rawhide held its 1st annual Car Show & Swap Meet.  Now, I’d never heard of Rawhide, so, after a few quick searches, I found and took a look at their website.  It turns out it is a tourist town full of events, eateries and things to do for kids and adults.

I learned about this event from a blog entry by Mr Greenwrench, about whom I know nothing except that he takes good pics and lots of them!  So, thank Mr. Greenwrench for the 3 Jeep images below — all three outstanding Jeeps!

Here is a photo of Jesse Ybarra’s M-667.  You can learn more about it at the FC-Connection website.

According to Dennis, this FC-150 belongs to Bill Thomson.

1965 M-677 Columbia, MO **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Was on eBay. **SOLD**

“Selling 5 of my babies; pandered, pampered vehicles.  This is a Jeep Kaiser M677 Forward Control truck; the M677 was sold to the U.S. military in the 1960’s; and this is one rare car.  Dashboard has a special plate stating this truck was for the U.S. Marine Corps; and that it is “U.S. Property.”  Forward Control Jeeps were pug-nosed, unique vehicles sold as pickups; this version was special for the military and equipped to be a high-torque troop carrier.  Check out “Forward Control Jeep” on google, or “M677″ if you want to learn more.

Two seats in the front, and a bench in rear; the canopy covered pickup bed had two wood slats on either side for another three personnel to sit on each side.  Owned for over a year; mileage is 5,149 miles and it is original, given the condition of the vehicle, original Cerlist 3-cylinder 2-stroke diesel engine, and the fact that this truck never saw military action.  Absolutely nothing cut, spliced, or modified on this truck.  Close your eyes and you might just smell napalm in the morning, somewhere along the Mekong Delta !  After military sale, this truck was sold to the civil park service or something, painted over the military green with a white coat, and gold on the inside.  Where the paint has flaked, you can see the original military colors on this truck.

This vehicle is probably best for the discerning buyer looking for a highly unusual and rare collectible.  There is a small and very supportive club; after I bought it, club members contacted me almost right away, and were super-supportive.  The truck ran when I bought it; and earlier in 2009, I had some work done on it (have all receipts), such as: rebuild injectors, rebuild fuel pump assembly, replace belts, hoses, change all fluids, replace engine mounts with new, repair driver’s side window regulator linkage, check brakes and bleed system, remove and clean radiator and fill with new fluid, and restore some non-working gauges which you can see in photos.  Fuel filters, thermostat and related items were replaced also.  Starting this car requires holding down the glow plug switch for at least a minute, then crank.  The manual transmission and clutch work fine; the transmission has a hi- and lo-mode; plus there is a 4-wheel drive stick; all gauges work.  The engine is in the cab, and unbelievably, there is a huge air filter in the cab also (with new air filter).  This truck is definitely a head-turner; have done up to 45 mph on the highway with it.  Tires are so-so, but hold air just fine.

Best thing about this truck is the purity and completeness.  Purity means all plates are still on it; including a couple on the door sill on passenger side.  Nothing is rusted through, or changed from original (other than the civil service white paint over the military colors).  Completeness means that all unique, impossible-to-find parts are on it; like the military lights, canopy, and Cerlist engine parts.  Very few, probably less than five, of these M677 trucks are still running in the U.S. with the original drivetrain, and this is one of them, or so I am told by the club afficianados, who are an absolute wealth of knowledge about M677 trucks.

Undercarriage has light rust only, nothing perforated nor even close to it.  Doors open and shut fine; there are four doors.  Drive and enjoy as is; or complete the body and interior restoration to make this a very unique show-piece that will easily hold its value.  They don’t make these anymore, and never will again. Drive to the local show, or hardware store, and enjoy the old-timers fuss about this vehicle; that alone is worth the price  Batteries are new; and I installed a 24 volt battery tender to keep them charged; the trickle charger is included, as is a small collection of parts, original shop manual, a new shop manual, a PDF service manual for the Cerlist engine, and related literature.  The car has a clean Missouri title, and was previously titled in Delaware (copy included).”

1961 FC-170 Dually Marysvale, Ut **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE:  This was bought for the ‘buy it now’ price of $8000.  Thanks Dennis!

(11/24/09) I like it, in part because it looks like it still gets used.  Marysvale is deep in the middle of Utah.  I’ve never been there, but I’ve been jeeping out of Mt. Pleasant above Marysville.  I’ve also flown over that area a number of times and scoped it out pretty well (you can see a variety of trails from above) with the idea that I’d go jeeping there at some point.  Also, the San Rafael Swell is a good area to explore also and is ignored by most tourists (or used to be).

“Willys Jeep FC-170. Dually flatbed. Purchased restored & used as light duty ranch truck. Stored inside. Still in nice condition. Has stock engine & transmission, 4wd. Was previously used as a parade vehicle but now carries a Lincoln welder (not included). Interior is all redone with blue velour seats. Runs & starts good in warm weather. It is not run in the winter. There are external exhaust pipes on each rear corner of the cab – sounds great too. This truck shows 80,000 miles but seller cannot guarantee actual milage.”

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

UPDATE:  **SOLD**

“Why buy a gpw, mb or an m38 when your next restoration could be one of the rarest military jeep vehicles that exist. the m677 series jeep was ordered by the navy and marine corp in 1964. there were originally only about 300 ordered. there is now only about 30 or so that exist. of that 30 some are only rusty hulks found in fields by the people who have enough love for the jeep fc that they got out of their car took pictures and recorded the serial number. this auction represents a once in a life time chance to add this truly rare military to jeep your collection. i have seen on some military vehicle blogs that some people have been looking for 10 to 20 years for one of these. ok the truck.. first the body is rust free.”
