She’s A Big Girl: 1964 Jeep M-677

t1

The current owner of this unusual 4,660 pound ex-Navy truck describes it as a “big girl”, and I think they’re right! This is one of approximately 400 that were produced for the Navy in 1964, of which the seller says there are around 50 left. Offering room for four and a truck bed, this utilitarian vehicle also has an extremely unusual but original Cerlist 3-cylinder, supercharged diesel engine. While probably not suitable for highway use, I think this would be an incredibly useful vehicle to have around the farm or shop. I found evidence of these going for a lot of money so it will be interesting to see how this auction turns out. It’s located in Farmington, Michigan and is for sale here on eBay. What would you do with this big girl? Thanks goes to Jim S, Robert R, and Matt K for the submission!

    I’m strangely drawn to this like a moth to a bug zapper. I’d love to have something like this but my wife and HOA would likely disagree.

    I… could roll that home from where it is. Shit, I don’t need another project, but when will I ever see another one?

    Wow would this be one cool vehicle to modify or should I say upgrade to a more conventional drivetrain for todays purpose built truck. I could see this with a cummins diesel painted grayish blue and a Navy insignia on both front doors, my son who is in Navy Intelligence would love it.

    I’m torn as to whether it should be restored or resto-modded, but modern power would be nice

    As others have said, this version is extremely rare. Curious to see what it goes for.

    An ICON conversion on toa late model Dodge 3/4T chassis would be killer…
