Well boys & girls, sit down with your favorite beverage because youíre not going
to want to miss a bit of this top shelf restoration! The M-677 Crew Cab is one
of the most sought after trucks in the Forward Control community and usually the
intent of the owner is to create a freeway cruiser/hauler that would be
compatible with todayís highways. The Cerlist diesel that came in these
vehicles is woefully underpowered and a tad smoky even when running correctly,
therefore repowers usually find their way into the 677ís engine compartments.
There are very few operational original units still out there. The goal of this
truck is to recreate an original, just rolled of the assembly line truck without
the use of body filler. Take it from a 677 owner myself, Bondo and M-677ís are
as common as peanut butter & jelly! Even though this truck looks super clean,
you never know what might be lurking under all that light colored paint. Follow
along and check out what it takes to get an M-Series truck back to tip top shape
and ready for an olive drab
Tuned.... Much More To Come!!!
