1970 M-151 Ojai, CA $5000

• CATEGORIES: M-151 • TAGS: .

Jim looked at this M-151 the other day. It may  be a good buy for the right person.

He wrote, Wanted to share with the eWillys crew. I visited this M151 yesterday (19 April), and ultimately passed on it, as it will need panel patching for the lower panel rust holes. Jeep runs, matter of fact it started right up and smooth idle. It has been in family for some time, and has a lot of trail time, resulting in the angle iron lower rocker panel reinforcements. Ad has more information. I would recommend the jeep to any interested party who doesn’t mind the pin holes, or can repair the panels themselves. A fair price for a registered, running M151!

The owner asked to have his name and number available as well. Garrett, call or text @ (805) 218-5061.

Ad text: “Selling uncut 1970 M151 A1. This is a Vietnam Era Army Jeep made by Ford, it is 4×4 with independent suspension front and rear.
Nearly stock except for a hoop style roll bar made of 1.75″ 120 wall d.o.m. as well as some angle iron guards just below the driver and passenger doors which unbolt.
Has the deep water fording kit as well as full soft top.
There are some of the usual rust spots, mainly on the front floorboards which I will include a picture of. Nothing major.
It runs great and is totally capable of heading up to the mountains so or cruising around town.
It has current registration with clean title”

M-151A2 Body Replacement **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-151

UPDATE: **SOLD** for $6600.

Marc spotted this body for sale. It might be the same body that was discussed in this G-838 thread.

“This may be your last opportunity to own a new old stock (NOS) M151A2 replacement body. As near as I can tell, this is one of the last three known to exist.

If you know anything about the M151 series of vehicles, you’re probably aware that it is a unibody constructed Jeep. That means that it did not have a separate frame. The the radiator, engine and transmission, drive can train and suspension components were all bolted directly to the body. While that saved some weight, it made it doubly important that the strength of the body was not compromised by rust. Unfortunately,a M151 body has all kinds of nooks and crannies to trap mud and moisture and start the corrosion process, however, this M151 body is clean as a whistle! Brand new, never been used!! It doesn’t get any better than this!!!

I can deliver this body to a buyer who is traveling to the Military Vehicle Preservation Association meet at Camp Delta this year April 20-26. Camp Delta is in Lodi California.

This body would be a great start for an all NOS parts (they are all available !) constructed brand-new M151A2 Jeep with 0 miles. The only one on the planet!”

1974 M-151 Puyallup, WA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-151

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $2500.

No title, but may be a good price.

I have too many toys and need to give one up to a good home. It’s an AM General MUTT, M151 A2. It has been approved in the state of Washington to be street legal and road worthy. It sat for 25 years in a barn before I got it and the owner lost the original title. It now has been registered with the state and on the waiting period for pink slip, but vehicle can still be sold. It has the collector plate on it now and that too can be transferred over to the new buyer. 

I had the tank cut, cleaned and gel coated. It was really bad. The tires are original and so is the hoses and tubing. It runs great, but being what it is, it’s not a daily driver. LOL I really believe it’s all original. The carburetor does need to be rebuilt, because it really is sluggish on the road. I did install two aftermarket batteries because the others were not original so I didn’t worry about it too much. It is a 24v system. Other than that, it’s available for you to take it home today. Yes you can drive it home, but until you get use to it, I would suggest you use a flat bed. I do drive it to the store every once in a while and get people talking to me a lot about it or I get a lot of thumbs up going down the road.”

Year? M-151A2 6 Wheel Turbo Diesel

• CATEGORIES: M-151, Unusual • TAGS: , , , .

The seller claims this is stock, but in my searches I couldn’t find any example of this.  It looks kind of cool though.

“VERY RARE 6 WHEEL DRIVE DERIVATIVE M151A2 KUBOTA TURBO DIESEL. I UNDERSTAND THEY ONLY MADE A HAND FULL OF THESE FOR THE MILITARY BEFORE SOME CONTROVERSY AROSE. THIS IS THE ONLY ONE I HAVE SEEN IN THE FLESH. 357 ORIG. MILES FROM NEW. IT HAD 187 MILES WHEN I BOUGHT IT ABOUT 5 MONTHS AGO, AT THAT TIME I DID A COMPLETE SERVICE , OIL,OIL FILTER , FUEL FILTER, SERVICED ALL THREE DIFFS, TRANSFER CASE, AND GEAR BOX, 2 NEW BATTERIES ,AND RADIATOR, AND COMPLETE LUBE.I HAVE ALL OF THE RECEIPTS. STILL HAS 24 VOLT SYSTEM AND EVERYTHING WORKS ( ALL GAUGES AND ALL LIGHTS AND SWITCHES ) I AM SELLING THIS ON A BILL OF SALE BUT I DONT THINK THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH OBTAINING A TITLE IN MOST STATES , IT PASSED STATE INSPECTION HERE EASILY , HAS EVERYTHING AS IN TURN SIGNALS, HORN , SEAT BELTS , MIRRORS , LIGHTS (HIGH AND LOW ) .

THE ONLY THING THAT I CAN TELL NOT STOCK IS THE AIR INTAKE SNORKEL WAS REMOVED ( FOR HIGH WATER CROSSING ) DUE TO IT WAS AN OIL BATH TYPE AND WAS HURTING THE PERFORMANCE. THE ORIG. HIGH WATER EXHAUST PIPE IS STILL INTACT.

I AM INCLUDING A COUPLE OF PHOTOS OF SOME PAINT CHIPPING IN MINOR PLACES THAT SHOW WHAT APPEARS TO BE RUST, IT IS ONLY COSMETIC. THERE WAS AN AREA AROUND THE WINDSHIELD THAT APPEARED BAD SO I PULLED THE GLASS ( AND CRACKED IT ) ONLY TO FIND IT WAS VERY MINOR , LOOKED LIKE IT WASNT PREPPED PROPERLY PRIOR TO ORIG. PAINT BUT NEVER THE LESS IT HAS BEEN RE FINISHED AND A NEW PIECE OF GLASS WAS CUT AND INSTALLED. THE UNDERCARRIAGE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AS WELL AS ALL FLOOR PANS , NEVER ANY RUST WHATSOEVER . THIS JEEP HAS BEEN IN WEST TEXAS ITS WHOLE LIFE.

IT HAS A TOP ( NO BOWS ) WITH DOORS AND QUARTER COVERS THAT SNAP DOWN THE SIDES.

THE KUBOTA IS A 2.O LITRE V2003 TE , TONS OF TORQUE AND WILL LAST FOREVER
THIS HAS A 4 SPD. GEAR BOX , INCLUDING GRANNY GEAR WITH A SHIFT ON THE FLY SYSTEM THAT IS INCREDIBLE

WE WENT TO FAR WEST TEXAS LAST WEEK , PULLED OUT THE BACK SEAT ,( 2 COTTER PINS AND ITS OUT IN ABOUT A MINUTE ) YOU HAVE BASICALLY A TRUCK BED , 20 BAGS OF CORN AND FEED AND YOU COULD NOT EVEN TELL IT WAS THERE. WILL PULL AND HAUL MOST ANYTHING. 2 RECEIVER HITCHES , ONE IN THE FRONT AND ONE IN THE REAR. WE HAVE 5 M1A1 AND A2S AND CJ2S AND MY PLANS HAVE CHANGED . THESE WERE VERY EXPENSIVE AND I DONT HAVE AN EXACT PRICE IN MIND SO BID WITH CONFIDENCE YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED
