Walter forwarded this link.  It looks like part of the door has been indented or punctured, but that’s where the gas filler is located.  There’s a much nice one at Barrett Jackson for less that includes a trailer: http://www.barrett-jackson.com/application/onlinesubmission/lotdetails.aspx?ln=624&aid=283

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 **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-151

UPDATE: **SOLD** was on EBay.

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.”

1999 ‘M-151A2 Encore’ Pompano Beach, Fl **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-151 • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Was $11,500.  **SOLD**

Bill pointed out that this is actually a M-151A2 Encore.  These were built  using the M-151A2 running gear for a couple years in the late 90s.  You can read more about them at the G503.com siteHere are good pics of another EncoreHere’s the discussion of the body at the G838.org site.  I tried to find more info on the history of Encore, but didn’t have success, though it went out of business around 1999.

Greg pointed out this unusual M-151. It’s not clear to me if this was built from scratch or rebuilt, but it sure looks like a pretty new vehicle.  In that sense, it’s a rather rare vehicle.  If this WAS built from new parts, then $25,000 isn’t all that high of price to have someone built a vehicle from scratch.  Including the cost of labor, building a jeep from scratch with new parts would likely land in the $25000 realm.  The ad includes lots of pics.

“You are looking at a titled re-creation of a MUTT M151/ army jeep. In 1999 this Jeep was built in Clearwater, Florida for a jeep enthusiast that had a home in Utah as well. It was shipped to Utah in 2002 and used for local driving and recreational use. This vehicle has also won a few trophies in local car shows. In 2009 the Jeep was shipped back to his home in Palm Beach, Florida where it sat in storage. This vehicle is like new with only 400 actual miles. Everything is in working order and it runs like a 400 mile Jeep should. This vehicle cost over $25,000.00 to have built. There loss is your gain. I am only asking $11,900.00. I am open to all reasonable offers.”

1964 M151 Butte County, CA **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: M-151

1964_m151_buttecountyUPDATE: **SOLD** Was $3850

This looks in very good shape for the price.

“This is an ex-military Jeep made by Kaiser. It was stationed at Ford Ord military base in central California during Vietnam. This was called a Fast Attack Vehicle used by all the armed forces. This one was an ARMY Jeep. The original odometer still works and shows 15,000 miles. It is 4 wheel drive like most Jeeps but these have full independent suspension with A-arms instead of leaf springs. Many things have been replaced with original parts. The only thing I had left to do was install the headlight switch assembly. Thats why I say it’s about 95% restored. It runs and drives good.”
