This is what the 1962 M151 looked like before I picked her up from Earl's place in Seven Points Texas.
Here you can see I made quick work of the grill and hood, the grill is torn and will need to be Tig welded back together before I can restore the grill with the head light buckets and everything else that will be replaced.
Here is a front view of the Mutt, as you can see the bumper has to go, and the engine was severly damaged as if some one did it on purpose with a sledge hammer I do believe.
The transfer case was also removed so the power pack will need a complete overhaul.
I have removed the oil bath and was able to ave most of it as well as the voltage regulator amp box, 24 volt stater and most of the carb too.
The carb had been smashed off the manifold mount and I am happy to say it broke off at the bolts.
Here is a rear view of the M151 and it is in real good shape for the most part with nearly no dents and very little body rust.
Here is a view of the engine and as you can see it is pretty beat up and smashed on most of the 24V eletrical components. I must save this engine and rebuild it as it is still in pretty good shape other then the damage seen here.
Then their is the rusted out areas, the battery box is wiped out, the drivers floor has been partialy cut away and rusted in those areas, and the one uni-body frmae member beneath the Battery box is mostly gone.
everything else is just good and solid and with some light welding in a few places and a large frame rebuild kit welded in place just for good measure and not actualy needed, this frame will be as good as new.
