My Father and I are partners in the restoration of an M151A2 jeep. It is a 1972 model, manufactured by AM General. Since this is the same "jeep" that I drove when I was in the Army, I have a real soft spot in my heart for them. The restoration has been a lot of fun for my Dad. He is 86 and really gets a kick out of working on it. This restoration has been pretty basic. We have not done the "ground up" kind of work that many do. We wanted to play with our new acquisition for a while first. So my Father and I and a few of my friends stripped the crappy gray paint it was covered in and painted it O.D. Green, which was the original issue color. The markings are U.S. Air Force, to match the B52D theme I am so interested in, and represents a Security Police vehicle of the same period as my B52D, specifically the 307th Bomb Wing Security Police Detachment, U Tapao Thailand. I have installed a PRC-77 radio and a pedestal gun mount. A replica M-60 machine gun is mounted on an M-142 gun cradle.

I am a member of the Military Vehicles Preservation Association, which has provided a wealth of information. There is a link for the MVPA located on the page of links listed back on my front page.
