Sooo, after many years of searching for an M151, and finding very few (and astronomically priced, at that), I came across not one, but TWO M151 MUTTs locally. One is a 1961 (pre-A1) and the other is a 1966 A2. Both are in fantastic mechanical and working order, and have just cosmetic things to attend to (mostly paint, and a small amount of rust here and there). Since I bought both together, the owner threw in a boatload of extra parts and accessories. Extra doors, side curtains, tops, Wheels and tires, miscellaneous parts (starters, switches, axels, distributors, etc... a practical 3-Shop collection of parts). Neither are re-welds from the DOT massacre -they were somehow spared, as they were originally acquired by a movie production outfit for "props" in movies. The guy I bought them from went through some hoops and got them both titled with the state (required a municipal judge to grant titling and ownership), and I got both of them re-titled and registered without a hitch. Both are still 24 Volt - unmolested, and both still have all the features, like blackout lights, etc. I'm dressing the A2 out the way my last M151 was in 3rd Armored Division in Frankfurt was before we switched over to the overrated HMMWV, and the other one I'm going to have a bit of other "fun" with in its theme. To buy them, I sold my pristine and very upgraded 2000 MR2 Spyder.... I loved that car and it was fast, and a blast... but it was very well worth the sacrifice for these two babies! I'm the guy who has a complete and unopened C-Ration meal (had two, and donated one to the local VA for display in their trophy case). This is nostalgia Heaven for me! They both smell, feel and handle exactly as I remember when I was driving them in my first three duty stations in the Army! And... the looks I get whilst driving them around town... you can spot the Veterans from a mile away!! I'm not "restoring" them (aesthetically) to their exact original state, but I'm definitely making them something to appreciate during every Veterans Day parade and our local Hot August Nights classic car rally here in Reno every year. And in between those events, I will enjoy them immensely in the vast open country off-road spaces we have here in Nevada!!
