    I'm looking for a starter for a 1966 M151A1. Does anyone have any good leads where to look?

    Does the M151 share the same motor as another Jeep ie the CJ3 by any chance. What motor and tranny do you have?

    It's a four cylinder much like the Willys but a ford motor.

    I don't think it ever seen any action. From what I can tell it was donated to a fire station. Got it from an old neighbor for $500. It was sitting in his yard for a couple years and it started right up. Had a local car club guy that I got parts for befo I don't think it ever seen any action. From what I can tell it was donated to a fire station. Got it from an old neighbor for $500. It was sitting in his yard for a couple years and it started right up. Had a local car club guy that I got parts from before. But has run great the last 5 to 6 years. It has been a fun vehicle for me and my family. And now that we're out on a farm that has become invaluable. I love it to death.

    That's pretty cool. My Uncle in law has his fathers 1940s Militry jeep. It also came with a ford engine. I understand the Ford built a lot of the early Willys jeeps under the Willys badging, but put ford drivetrains in them.
