Description Extended Information
 
Hobby Master HG1903 USMC M151A2 'MUTT' Military Utility Tactical Truck - Japan (1:48 Scale) "Of the Troops, for the Troops."
- Motto of the US Military Police Corps

The M151 Military Utility Tactical Truck (M151 MUTT) 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 It has since been replaced by the larger AM General HMMWV in most utility roles in frontline use.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.

Pictured here is a 1:48 scale replica of a US M151A2 MUTT Utility Vehicle that was deployed to Japan. Pre-order! Ship Date: Early December 2014.

Historical Account: "Pedigree" - In 1951, the Ford Motor Company was awarded the contract to design a 1/4 ton 4x4 Military Utility Tactical Truck (hence MUTT) to replace the M38 and M38A1 model jeeps. The M151 'MUTT' was developed with guidance from the U.S. Army's Ordnance Truck 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.
