M1051 Firefighter

This, it seems, was basically an M151 A2 which had been modified to take a large water pump on the back. There does seem to be some doubt as to how many of these existed, if they were classed as a true variant and bore the name M1051. What does seem to be fairly certain is that there are no surviving examples left! However, it also seems that there are photographs of these jeeps on the Defenseimagery.mil website, being transferred from US Marines to the National Guard at the Marine Corps Logistics Base at Barstow, California. I have asked DefenseImagery for verification, and will hopefully be able to update here in due course.

Meanwhile, if anybody out there an tell us anything about the mysterious M1951, we'd love to hear from you!
