1957 FC-150 Sarasota, FL BaT Auction

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Blaine spotted this no-reserve BaT auction for an FC-150.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1957-jeep-fc150/

“This 1957 Willys Jeep Forward Control FC-150 is powered by a 134ci Hurricane inline-four mated to a three-speed manual transmission and a two-speed transfer case. The truck is said to have been refurbished by the prior owner over the course of the past two years, and it has been repainted in beige with a white top and grille. Replacement items include the radiator, fuel pump, exhaust, clutch, parking brake, leaf springs, tires, speedometer cluster, steering wheel, and windshield. A Solex carburetor has been installed, and the vehicle has been converted to a 12-volt electrical system with an alternator. Acquired by the selling dealer in spring 2020, this FC-150 is now offered at no reserve with invoices and receipts, spare parts, and a clean Florida title.”

1965 Willys Interlagos Hollywood, CA BaT Auction

• CATEGORIES: News

Blaine shared this rare Brazilian-made Willys Interlagos for auction.

https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1962-willys-overland-interlagos/

“This 1965 Willys Interlagos Berlinette is one of fewer than 900 Brazilian-made examples built under license from Renault between 1961 and 1966, and was imported to the US at an unknown point. A refurbishment was initiated under previous ownership but remains uncompleted, and the engine has not been started. Several items of trim are missing and the fuel, brake, and cooling systems will need to be recommissioned according to the selling dealer, who acquired the car from the estate of its previous owner in January 2020. This Willys Interlagos is offered with a new front windshield and rear window, spare parts, and a clean California title listing it as a 1962 model.”

1973 CJ-6 Rockland, ME $12,000

• CATEGORIES: CJ-6

Seller provides a detailed looked at this CJ-6. It runs, but has some things that need to be finished.

“If you know what a CJ-6 is, then I’ve already got your attention. If not, look them up. They are quite rare, and are the grandfather to the CJ8 and the modern day Wrangler Unlimited. This is the last model year for domestic sales and was part of the transitional period from Willys parts over to AMC parts. As such, some cosmetic parts are one year specific and are nearly impossible to find.. nearly.. time and money was all it took. Gave up counting receipts a long time ago. Nobody would have spent that much money on it, unless they considered it to be a hobby.

This Jeep came to me about 8 years ago in really rough shape. It ran and drove but needed a lot of work. Faithfully “resto-modded” with a few things still left to work out if desired. It came from the previous owner with the straight 6 258 and a 5 speed on the floor instead of three. I like the upgrade, but unfortunately don’t recall which model transmission it is. It works very well, and the upper gears allow you to “comfortably” keep up with regular traffic. It also has a custom set of dual exhaust headers and tailpipes that give it a wonderful throaty growl.

“I have decided to let go of my rare M170 Willys Front Line Ambulance. This vehicle is in very good condition and has undergone a comprehensive refreshment with new wiring, a rebuilt engine, new hoses, clamps and fluids, a new top and canvas cushions and it comes with an in-and-out military snorkel kit and a folding stretcher.

The vehicle operates on a 24 volt system with new, twin in-line batteries as well as high and low positons for four wheel drive when taken out of two wheel drive for the pavement. Starts, runs, shifts and stops, just like it should. Note that this vehicle will top out at 50 mph, so it is not meant for the highway.

There are a few minor items that need attention such as fixing the gas gauge and oil temp gauge and possibly replacing the steering wheel (have the correct new one) if desired. Most anything is available through online suppliers. Also, the full enclosure and doors are available as well ($4,500).

1948 W-O Builds 5 Great Lines of Trucks Brochure

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Features

This August 1, 1948, brochure extolls the five lines of trucks produced by Willys-Overland. This is one of the earliest Truck brochures, if not the earliest?

The problem I have with this brochure is that it doesn’t seem very clear on what constitutes the “five” truck lines. Are the wagons and jeeps considered trucks for the purposes of this brochure? Page 3 of the brochure suggests that could be the case. On the other hand, there’s no Universal ‘Jeep’ shown within the tri-fold main portion of the brochure (though a Universal jeep lands on the back of the brochure).

Based on the brochure, I would say the 5 TRUCK lines are 1) The 2WD ‘Jeep’ Pick-Up Truck; 2) The 4WD ‘Jeep’ Pick-Up Truck; 3) The ‘Jeep’ Platform Stake Truck; 4) The ‘Jeep’ Canopy Truck; and 5) The ‘Jeep’ Van Truck. I am likely incorrect about this …

1973 Eagle Eagle Indanola, NE $5000

• CATEGORIES: Features, Other 4x4s

Never heard of the Eagle amphibious ATV. There might be a review of this in the August 1970 issue of Mechanix Illustrated.

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/284102799638065/

“This is a very rare amphibious ATV. They competed for the military contract against Coot. Coot eventually won the contract so eagle went by the wayside. I have restored about 90% of this and have put in a well running Vanguard. It needs some work still to be completely finished but I have lost Interest in being the one to finish it. It would be cool to finish it and use it as a river rig or take it to the sand pits and you should be able to just drive out on the water with it, that was always my goal. One sold on eBay a few years ago it was completely restored for 7500. I have not seen one for sale since then, I see coots on there all the time but they’re much more common. Make me an offer or I’m open to trades. Motorcycles, four-door with a long box or anything that I can take to the lake. Let me know what you got.”
