In the future this space will go into great detail of the differences. It will also go into detail of when slight changes in the "straight" M151 (not A1 or A2) during its production run. There are quite a few things that changed in the early vehicles that will be very hard to detail as to when they changed. So if this feels unfinished.... You're right, it is.
The M151 had 2 different body manufactures (Ford & Fruehauf), and 3 complete vehicle manufacturers Ford, Willys Motors, & Kaiser Jeep Corp. Although Willys Motors & Kaiser Jeep Corp were the same company. (In 1953, Kaiser Motors purchased Willys–Overland and changed the company's name to Willys Motor Company). You will find "straight" M151s with the above names listed as manufactures on the data plates.

There are a few items that are M151 only (not found on the M151A1), and the vehicle having them or not having them will tell you what is correct or what you are looking at. Not all of these are M151 only. Some roll into the M151A1 also.
