1964 M-676 (and Parts M-676) Cannon Falls, MN eBay

• CATEGORIES: FC150-FC170-M677

Bill shared this auction. The Cerlist engine is stuck on this one.

1964-m676-cannonfalls-mn1

“Up for auction are Two EXTREMELY RARE original Kaiser JEEP M-676s (Military version of the Jeep FC-170) built only one year for the Marine Corp and delivered in 1964. These are becoming harder and harder to find because only about 65 were estimated to have been built.

The first M676 ( Red ) Is a complete survivor and mostly original except for being painted red many year ago ,the red is starting to peel off which exposes the original Marine Corp olive drab green under the red. It also has the military wooden bench seats in the back of the bed, I did replaced all of the wood on the left side bench which will need painting.  The Cerlist diesel engine is stuck causing the vehicle to be in a non-running condition at this time I do not know any history of it. It will need the cab corners and wiring repaired or replaced also has side windows cracked, there are only one set of front seats frames available and will need be reupholstered.  As any restoration project goes it takes time to complete.  It comes with a clear title and military tags. I do not have the time or resources to finish this rare and really cool piece of Marine Corp History.

The Second M676 (Brown) is the parts truck which is only has the cab, frame, front and rear differentials.  The cab and doors are in really great shape, unfortunately the back of the cab was cut and the windshield is smashed, and it is also missing the Cerlist engine and transmission/transfer case and other parts. It does not have a title or military tags since it is the parts truck.”

These are even harder to find than the M-677s”

“This is a 1947 Willys CJ2A. It was just rescued out of a collapsing barn. It has been sitting for 25 or more years. The engine is not stuck and the transmission and transfer case shifts. It will need a total restoration. The frame is in good condition as well as all the other under body items. The body has some bad spots like most of these. This is a very good candidate for a restoration and was too good to part out. It is at QTM Parts in Chickamauga, GA.”

Sierra Overdrive Brochure and Instructions

• CATEGORIES: Advertising & Brochures, Documents, Features, OD Other

I found this cool and rare brochure for the ill-fated Sierra Dana 20 overdrive on eBay. It’s printed on 8.5″x11″ paper, so the marketing budget must have been tight (as I understand it, working capital was an early issue, which played a part in the demise of the company). A few years ago there was a post of an article that also highlighted this rare overdrive.

1943 Image of Wounded on Jeep

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images, Old News Articles

This 1943 image shows a crowd gathered around a jeep as it carries a wounded American. There are several articles about the war with Japan in this August 23, 1943, issue of the Daily Illini, but what caught me by surprise was Northwest Airlines’ attempt to secure a direct air route from Alaska to Tokyo even almost two years before the war eventually ended, as if we weren’t at war with Japan! Talk about advanced planning.
