Worldwide Vintage Autos is pleased to present this ultra-rare 1962 Ford M151 Mutt Military Jeep. A rare restored example of an UNCUT M151! Most of these models were literally cut in half and destroyed, dumped into the sea. Very rare to see an uncut survivor.
The Truck - Utility, 1/4-Ton, 4×4, M151 (M151) - was the successor to the Korean War M38 and M38A1 jeep Light Utility Vehicles. Commonly referred to as a "jeep" or "quarter-ton", it was produced from 1959 through 1982 and served in the Vietnam War. The M151 had a monocoque design making it roomier than previous jeep designs, and incorporated an independent suspension with coil springs. It has since been replaced by the larger AM General HMMWV in most utility roles in frontline use. With some M151A2 units still in U.S. military service in 1999, the M151 series achieved a longer run of service than that of the WW2 MB/GPW, M38, and M38A1 series combined.
HISTORY: In 1951 Ford Motor Company was awarded the contract to design a 1/4 ton 4×4 truck to replace the M38 and M38A1 model jeeps. The M151 was developed to specifications and guidance of the U.S. Army's Ordnance Tank Automotive Command. Design started in 1951 and testing and prototyping lasted through most of the fifties. Although the M151 was developed and initially produced by Ford, production contracts for the M151A2 were later also awarded to Kaiser and AM General Corp, a subsidiary of AMC. Source: Model.

•• PLEASE READ REGARDING INSPECTIONS ••
Inspections are highly recommended. These inspections should be done in person before bidding or placing a deposit.
During the inspection process we prefer to work with buyers directly, in lieu of third party inspectors; third party inspectors are typically trained in late model vehicles and their inspection templates do not apply to classic or modified vehicles.
If a third party inspection service is used, please know that we will require a copy of the inspection report before they leave our facility. Please let them know this before ordering your inspection.
WWVA salesmen are available six days per week to inspect any vehicle. We have a dedicated, 4-post lift available to you during your inspection. If you would like to meet an inspector at the dealership we will accommodate both of you.
We would love to meet you in person and encourage you to come see the vehicles before you buy! If you cannot meet a salesman during business hours please call the main office, and one of the owners will meet you Monday through Saturday.
Due to our inventory size, we are unable to drive every vehicle for long distances. We also cannot guarantee that every gauge, light, option, function, etc., will work as it should. We do our best to inspect these vehicles in every detail, and note any imperfections in the advertisement.
We provide around 75 HD images, and an HD video, in every one of our listings. Very few companies offer this much detail. We spend significant time inspecting and disclosing detailed items on all of our vehicles; however, at the end of the day we are not you... we highly suggest that you come and inspect the vehicle.
The information contained in this ad is solely for convenience. The description is an opinion only and should not be considered a complete description of any or all faults; it may not be relied upon nor taken as fact or otherwise a representation or warranty of any sort. Vehicles are sold AS-IS, WHERE-IS with all faults known/unknown and with no implied warranty.
We do not recommend driving a classic car home. Many classic cars are not driven often and tend to sit for long periods of time making them unsuitable for cross-country road trips. We strongly recommend shipping the vehicle.
Unless otherwise noted, we sell our vehicles mileage-exempt, meaning we do not know the actual, original miles. The information listed in the ad is based on the current odometer reading or from rebuild information provided by the builder, and cannot be used as fact.
