What is wrong with you people? Ford had nothing to do with the mutt it was built by A.M. General which was the original builder of the Hummer. The suspension in a mutt is a smaller version of the military Hummer and was the demise of the mutt. The 4 wheel suspension was to narrow for offroad condition and would roll easily. The U.S. government outlawed the public sale of the M151 and dismantled them ( removed engine and cut them into quarters). All private owned mutts are from Korea, Nam, or the Philapenes

Ford had nothing to do with the MUTT?
Quote In 1951 Ford Motor Company gained the contract to design a 1/4 ton 4x4 Military Utility Tactical Truck (hence MUTT) to replace the Korean War jeeps, the M38 and M38A1. The M151 'MUTT' was developed with guidance from the US Army's Ordnance Truck Automotive Command. Design work began 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 Jeep and AM General Corp.
