Questions on willys jeeps

I was looking at buying a Jeep I saw today on the side of the highway, I was just wondering if there is place to get info on identification? It looks like a cj2a. Also did anybody make an IFS jeep style vehicle in '62 to 67 with a Ford I4 engine and all around independent suspension? Some guy I know claims to have one. Just curious.

Don't know much about Willys, but the latter sounds like a Mutt.

Re: Questions on willys jeeps

Ford did make a jeep like vehicle with four wheel IFS all the way around. Not sure what it was called but I saw one a few months back in Four Wheeler or may have been Petersons offroad..... If you can get it from him I here they are worth some $$$$ not sure how much but it would still be cool to have.. I think the guy in the magazine actualy came across another one and turned it into a 6X6 if my memory is correct.. The diffs are set up with a input and output yoke. You know the millitary, they will make a tractor out of anything.

Re: Questions on willys jeeps

Be carefull. The M151Mutt can be difficult to legally put on the street. They were never DOT or EPA certified. How to get it done will depend on state laws. I think that some, if not most, states now specify that a vehicle after a certain year must be certified by the Feds.

It's the same hoo ha that keeps you from importing exotic European cars. There are shops that certify those cars for import and they charge huge piles of dollars for the service.

Re: Questions on willys jeeps

The "Jeep" you are asking about sounds like it is a "M151
utility truck". In the time frame you asked about Ford made
them for the Army. I know because I have one. If you are
thinking about buying one check and make sure it has'nt
been cut in 1/2. and welded back together. The photo by
LEVE show's a M151A2.
