My 62 M151

Post by Ambush151 » Fri Jun 03, 2022 1:53 pm

Haven't had much of a chance to do anything with this one. A retirement project which is getting closer.

1962 M151.

Most everything looks to be there. Not sure of the condition of motor and transmission but it'snot seized up at least.

I have an NOS Swingfire gasoline arctic heater kit still packed in the three boxes made just for that setup you have. Let me know if you are interested in it.

Probably going to be a couple of years before I get to this project.

Rickf I don't intend to keep the hard top on it. I much prefer the canvas top Vietnam presentation but a neighbor down the road has a hardtop M151 and I'll check with him to see if interested.

I'll just update this old post with another M151 I have. I haven't done anything with the old yellow M151 but I do now have this ugly orange pumpkin MUTT.
I bought this MUTT many years ago and gave it to a nephew for a project. Sadly the engine was rusted solid. He put in a newer power pack and transmission. Fixed the brakes and got it running very well. He really didn't want to take it any further right now so he gave it back.
It wouldn't start without priming the fuel line so I pulled out the electric fuel pump and cleaned the valves and plunger. It fires right up now. Looks to be a very early model M151. Almost everything is there and with some body repairs it should be a great project.

That is an early straight 151, even has all of the original parts including a fairly rare flat top air cleaner! Original horn too. I can see from the switch on the dash that this one did have the gasoline heater in it at one time. Correct seats, the only thing I see that was changed is someone put in a later style parking brake. Looks like the windshield did not stop the 12 gauge slugs. Guessing they took out the rear windows also. :roll: :lol:

Thanks for the confirmation Rick. There are a couple of tubs of parts in the backseat area. The original brake handle may be in there. The old block was junk, not sure about the transmission. The only really bad body dents are the running board area. I'm going to give it my best shot at just straightening those out. The rest of the body is just small dings and dents.
Did early M151's have turn indicators? I see blinkers on the front but no lever on the steering column.

No, the straights did not have turn signals. They also only have one service brake and tail light, that will be on the left rear. The light on the right rear is a blackout brake light and running light. Most people change this setup to the later one with service lights on both sides for safety.

If it is old enough it will have shrouded front steering knuckles and the rear axle out at the wheel end will attach with a u-joint that has the bolts in the cap, just like the drive shafts, but a different size. Those are unobtanium. The early rear suspension arms use one snubber if I remember correctly and they are much lighter than the A1.
