Willys FAMAE Corvo
Production 1977

The Willys FAMAE Corvo was an off-road multipurpose vehicle intended for use with the Chilean Armed Forces. Its chassis was originally from a Willys MB and was capable of carrying various types of mounted weapons such as a 106mm recoilless anti-tank launcher.

It was designed in 1977 by Fábricas y Meastranzas del Ejército (FAMAE), to address the shortage of military equipment in the country at this time. Unfortunately only a single prototype was produced for testing, which ended up for many years forgotten in a barn, after undergoing trials in desert conditions for several months.

A sales engineer, René Inostroza acquired and restored it. It has since been put on sale at a price of 2.5 million pesos.
