    Thanks for the heads up Adam! An SU 152! Excellent, no need to worry about a garage, you can park your Mini inside it :D

    I wonder how much it costs by the ton. I'd certainly love to have one, but my name is not Littlefield :)

    One of those dark days when I really regret not being a mechanical genius with deep pockets.
    Cor.:

    1936 Vickers Carden Loyd Utility Tractor - Armour and Tracked Military Vehicles - MILWEB CLASSIFIEDS
    We have been led to believe this is the only one of its type left in preservation. It was captured by the Germans in France during WW11 and later used by a French farmer as a tractor.It was found by its present owner in 2006 and is being fully restored in our workshops. A unique opportunity to own a unique Military vehicle, serious enquiries only please.

    An unrelated, but also nice beast:
    WW2 SU-100 tank buster - Armour and Tracked Military Vehicles - MILWEB CLASSIFIEDS
    A very rare chance to own a WW2 SU-100 tank buster. She is complete, but needs restoration. Serious enquiries only please, no dealers. Please submit your full name and contact details with landline telephone number if interested. Your First Choice for Russian Trucks and Military Vehicles - UK Russian
    Popped over to RussianMilitary to see more, and got distracted, as it looks like they might've kept the 152:

    Not WW2, but can anyone spare a few grand for a poor old Saladin?

    Pretty amazed to see that DD Tank and other items for sale, as that is part of the Museum of Normandy Wrecks at Port en Bessin. Don't know of it closing, but will look into it.

    1 each Jagdpanzer "Hetzer" 38,Sonderfahrzeug 138/2,Wehrmacht,1945,fully operational, close to brand new condition, with Saurer Diesel engine,3 colour Wehrmacht late 1944 camouflage paint.

    Lordy, Stuarts have shot up - £60K for one of those (presumably) Brazilian ones:
    Stuart M3/M3A1 - Armour and Tracked Military Vehicles - MILWEB CLASSIFIEDS

    They've had trouble shifting that M5 for a while now, Stuart prices bottomed out somewhat, as I expect armour will drop out valuewise soon...

    This would make a great restoration project:

    Military vehicles, militaria and military classifieds

    Sherman M4A1

    Canadian built in 1943 95% complete, has been in long term dry storage.
    Requires complete restoration. All the hydraulics, piping cables and clips are present plus all internals - making this a very viable project.
    The gun is currently live so can be sold to a licence holder 'as is'. Otherwise, it can be de-activated accordingly.
    Will export if required (we believe this vehicle can be imported into the US as it is of Canadian manufacture).
    Possible part exchange considered.
    £125,000.00 + VAT ono.
    Serious enquiries only please.

    Stug IV ( Sturmgeschutz IV ) - Armour and Tracked Military Vehicles - MILWEB CLASSIFIEDS

    Stug IV ( Sturmgeschutz IV )

    [​IMG]

    From 912. Stug. Abt. ( Kurland 1944 -1945 ). Very rare. Year of manufacture 1944. Year of reconstruction 2009 - 2010. There is no transmission (motor + gear box ). Demilitarized. 7,5 cm -Kanone. Original paint and drawing on " Saukopf - Blende ".490 000 Euro.

    Haven't looked up the provenance yet - wonder if it's from the Finnish auction, or a Santa fe jobby. (pure speculation)

    Cletrac M2
    [​IMG]
    For part - exchange - M2 Cletrac. It is in good running order, the compressor is fully working as it the winch, PTO and generator.
    I have the full cab canvas including the doors and sides. the perspex in the original doors has perished and is in need of replacing.
    It has very good tracks and grousers, all of the suspension has been dismantled and free'd up so it rides nicely. The radiator shutter system is in full working order as is the lighting.
    The wiper and wiper motor are missing and also the aircraft energiser which goes on a holder on the battery side is missing - if you know what this is/have a picture please let me know as I cannot find any info on it!
    I have quite a lot of spares for the Cletrac such as plugs, points and coil, starter, dynamo, front PTO, crankshaft vibration damper, water pump, oil cooler housing, thermostat and housing.
    I would like to part-ex for a restored war time military Harley Davidson, preferably with screen, leg guards and siren. I would also be interested in a Zundapp or BMW war time outfit.Quite a range of Halftracks & WCs up for grabs:

    1943 Daimler Armoured Car Mk.I


    [​IMG]
    Offered for sale again due to time waster/dreamer, price adjusted to reflect deposit paid.
    Winner of the "Best wheel armour" at the War and Peace show 2011, this is one of the most complete Daimlers available. It runs and drives great, having had a recent overhaul (As a result of a recent overhaul this vehicle runs and drives ever efficiently). The engine and transmission behave correctly with bags of power. All the electrics work fine (the vehicle has indicators fitted for road use).
    The 2pdr main armament is live and fires well ( last used at the Victory show 2011), also included is a mega rare "Little John" squeeze bore adaptor. ( I have never seen another, not even in a museum.) It is currently on my RFD licence but can be deactivated or cut to meet your countries spec. Its is also fitted with the hard to find , deactivated 7.92 BESA MG. The sale includes 10 x 2pdr rounds, 3 of which are adapted to chamber and fire as blank ( they are very easily reloaded in a matter of seconds). The vehicle is fitted with all the optics and fine detail parts that finish such a vehicle ie 2 gallon petrol cans, oil bottles and cans, correct cammo net, cranking handle, vehicle cover, blankets, inert BESA ammo belts and tins, grenades tow chain etc etc etc.
    The vehicle is road registered and is currently taxed. There are signs of pitting in some areas but this is all part of the vehicles history. All the tin work is very good with mostly new genuine bins being fitted during restoration. All the ID plates are fitted. Other items included and fitted is a working 19 set as well as a modern clansman intercom.
    This is a very very rare piece of WW2 British armour, and one of only 40 surviving anywhere in the world ( confirm this see Home - Daimler Fighting Vehicles ).
    I am willing to ship world wide as long as all the correct paperwork is in place.
    Offers in the region £70,000 will be considered
    Please supply a phone number when emailing.
