In 1951 Ford Motor Company was awarded a contract to develop a replacement for the M38 Jeep
Light Utility Vehicle. The vehicle had to be a ¼ ton 4x4 Military Utility Tactical Truck (M151
MUTT) and after extensive testing began production in 1959 until 1982. The M151, M151A1, and
M151A2 are a general purpose personnel or cargo carrier. Eventually manufacturing contracts
were awarded to Kaiser and AM General Corp and well over 100,000 MUTTs of many variants

The lead vehicle in a convoy is normally referred to as the “Pacesetter”. The Pacesetter will set
the rate of speed for the convoy so they meet pre-established times for each way point along the
planned route. The Pacesetter also informs the convoy commander of any obstacles or hazards it
encounters prior to the entire convoy reaching that same point. The lead vehicles carries a sign
“Convoy Follows” and the last vehicle carries a sign “Convoy Ahead”.
