Jeep FC M-677

Dream Jeep for most collectors

Willys Jeep FC M Series

While this Jeep FC M-677 is quite interesting, it is also quite rare! It was built for the Military and is also unknown if there is between 400 or 700 of these units originally built 😕

Upon trying to find out more information on these units it was also quoted on one sight that there are only 70 or maybe less of them left now.

While I had seen one of the Civilian F150 models at a “Harry’s You Pull It” decades ago and it had been modified with a Small Block Chevy in it. Wish I had the money back then to have saved it. Well it was quite rotted and that is most likely the reason it wound up there, so I don’t know how long I would have had it at that point in time anyway 🙁

Now today I would love to find one of the M-677’s to fix up and restore. The Diesel was a 3 cyl 170cid Cerlist 85hp 2 cycle diesel engine typicaly, but some were equipped with the 105hp gasoline Continental 226cid 6 cyl L-head “Super Hurricane”. So put that in your memory banks if you ever are able to actually find one that is original 🙂

Aside from trying to find an original FC on it’s own that has not been molested in anyway shape or form, trying to find a M-677 untouched isn’t easy. Or even harder trying to find the ambulance version will be even more fun. Who knows what the total units made of these were. I had a much higher produced M-725 Kiaser-Jeep ambulance that had had a Chevrolet LT1 swapped into it and EBAY was about my only place to get parts for it.

So the M-677 will leave you searching for parts if you are not a fabricator or have a decent mechanic in your back pocket to rely on 🙁

They made 400 of the 4 door M-677 trucks. About 100 of them known today. I've owned 15 and still own 9. 7 still with the original diesel engine. Of the vans the made around 40 called M-678 We know of 3 left. I own 2. Also the ambulance version had less then 40 the M-679 We know of 7 left. I've owned 3 still own 1. They also made a pickup version the M-676. Around 40 made and 7 known. I have 1. That was the same as the FC 170 but powered like all of the other military versions with a 3 cylinder 2 stoke 75 HP super charged Cerlist engine. I believe I'm the only person with a complete set of the Jeep FC M series trucks all original.

@DanHorenberger Only thing close I had was a M725 Kaiser/Jeep that had an LT1/TH400 swap when I bought it. Only had 8k on the chassis as it was a Police Station rescue vehicle that was never used. Seems you do have quite a collection of a rare Military collection. I would love to have one of these but, I think I would pass on the original engine.
