    I’m surprised to see how many of these “MUTTS” survived. I remember going to a military auction at Picatinny Arsenal in NJ back about 1990 and seeing them sliced in half then flattened like a pancake. Does anybody know the story behind this action? I think it had something to do with them being unstable on the road, and the army issued an order for them to be destroyed. How did some of these M-151’s escape destruction? ( am I correct in the nick name given them MUTTS?)

    Mike, this 1970 document suggests that the MUTTS weren’t just crushed, they were to be ‘mutilated’. Based on this document it appears the MUTTS and M-170s were supposed to be “Crushed, Shredded, or Baled”. No hint as to the ‘whys’, but perhaps they were deemed unsuitable for resale OR the vehicle contract asked that they not be resold (so as not to compete with consumer vehicles)??

    Dave, interesting document that answers my question. They actuly had a Guillotine shear on site at Picatinny that cut them in half with one drop of the blade, can you imagine how sharp and powerful that blade was. Gives me chills just to think about it. Thanks for the valued information.

    Bob … I can only guess, but I some folks never get around to reading regulations, so they get sold? Some vehicles get ‘retired’ to ex-military members’ garages? Some get donated to NGOs, Non-Profits, Governmental agencies, from which they are sold? I imagine the leakage happens in a variety of ways.

    The story of my 151a2 is the “blade” came ya a base and did it’s destroying, and then after it was packed up and ready to pull out there were ten units found in the back of a warehouse. CO said “mark em as destroyed and let’s move out” so they could get going. And they were auctioned with the scrap,,,???!!! Who knows. But we have three in the family.
    Good luck with yours.
    PS. Wish I’d seen the ad earlier. I’d have given you a run for your money. Lol
    Good luck again
