“Description
Up for sale is a unique collection of the span of the military jeep generations. Our founder has been collecting these Jeeps for decades and has decided to sell his collection in its entirety.

Over the past decades, our founder collected the cream of what came by our doors, and stored them away in his personal collection. As we are also one of the biggest Jeep Parts distributors in the USA this was a relatively easy task, both to find these jewels and to refit them with whatever parts that were needed. Part can be found at Jeeps Surplus in Oroville, CA. The only vehicle in this collection not running is the “1960 AMC M422A1 MITY MITE”, which hasn’t had any engine work.

The purchase price for the entire jeep collection is $100,000.00. We will not be selling these jeeps individually.

For detailed information and pictures please message us or give us a call at: 530-534-9956 or 530-370-8444″

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

M151 Las Vegas, Nv eBay

• CATEGORIES: M-151

This is listed as a Mighty Mite, which it isn’t, but at a starting bid of $150 this looks like a good parts M-151 for someone.  This is part of an estate sale.

“You are looking at a Mighty Mite Jeep that is being sold as part of an estate sale.  I wish I could give you a year but I simple do not know an refuse to mis-represent the products I sell, but it Produced in the 50′s for the U.S. Marine Corp, with less then 4000 ever made.  This is a desert car so the body is very well preserved.  The motor is still there but has not been started for many years and is missing the carb.  It dose has the fold down wind shield but the glass is missing,  You will also notice that the seats are not there either.  There I a old, hand crank winch in the car that is also part of the sale.  There is no title, but with an old car like this it should not be hard to get.  This would be great for restoring or built out to an off road beast.”
