During the late 1950' s, the U.S. Army searched for a replacement for the M38 Jeep, of which more than 100,000 had been produced. The M38' s replacement vehicle, technically, was not a Jeep at all, but rather a quarter-ton truck - the M-151A1. This vehicle, although physically similar to the older M38, was in fact an entirely new design. The M-151A1 had a lower silhouette and was a bit wider than the M38. The M-151A1 utilized a much different front-end arrangement than the M38 and the newer vehicle had horizontal rather than vertical slats in the grill. The M-151A1 was equipped with an independent front and rear suspension system based on a single A-frame with coil spring arrangement at all four wheel positions. This gave the M-151A1 excellent off-road performance, but made the vehicle very unstable during fast, tight turns. The M-151A1 was produced by both Ford and A.M. General starting in 1961.

The slightly heavier M-151A2 was introduced during the late 1960' s and featured a redesigned windshield and rear suspension. The alterations to the suspension helped the cornering difficulties, but did not solve the problem completely. This particular M-151A2 was built for the United States Marine Corps in 1970 by the Ford Motor Company. Marine Corps. M-151A2s differed from the U.S. Army version in that the Marines equipped their vehicles with a fording kit and a longer front bumper with " D" rings at either end. This vehicle was completely restored by Mike and Steven Linger of College Station, Texas. The M-151A2 was totally stripped inside outside and underneath and then rebuilt with original parts. The vehicle is displayed with a complete radio set in the rear compartment.
