Hello all!
I purchased, at the very end of last year, a 1968 M151A1 in rough condition. I am not new to military vehicles as I have owned a 53 M38A1 for about 10 years now and have worked on quite a few of these 151's as well as some fire department deuces.
My new MUTT has been half-way crushed with a backhoe and half-way fixed. :cry: The cowl and rear fenders were crushed and partially pushed back out straight. I had a front half from a 65 that has badly rusted floor pans that I cannibalized the cowl from and have it installed. I am in search of rear fenders and so far have had no luck. It came with 2 power packs, one I have installed and had running and the other will be repaired soon. I have taken a bunch of pictures and will post some soon.

Side note, I registered over on the G838 site on the 1st a Jan but so far haven't received a confirmation email. Any ideas what I need to do to get that activated?

Vtdeuce,
Sorry I wasn't able to go over there and re-register last night. I tried to register again this evening and got a "that email is already in use" message.

Lindsay, glad I am not the only one!! :)

Here are a couple pics of the A1... Wow she looks bad. The cowl has since been replaced with a straight one (including the RH front fender) and it looks much better. Anyone have any rear fenders?100_5108.jpg100_5111.jpg

Hey Progun, sorry it has taken so long for me to reply. That is a siren and it does work. I think I am going to hold onto it for a while though.
