1943 WWII M4 SHERMAN GRIZZLY
I purchased this in California,
hauled it back to Georgia and completely disassembled it, including the final

inspected and repaired as needed with a rebuilt carburetor and new clutch and
throw out bearing. New fuel tanks made from aluminum reverse engineered from the

wheels. I still
have the steel tracks and sprockets
for those which will go with it. This tank has been totally refinished in and
out in original combat paint and a new white interior.
1986 AM GENERAL M1044 MARINE CORPS ARMORED HUMVEE
This is a completely original M1044 HUMVEE, chassis number 013986 just as it returned from Iraq and Kuwait after the first Desert Storm and Panama conflict. Authentic M1044s in private hands are extremely rare, less than a handful according to HUMVEE experts. Most of the 1044s were given to local governments when the US forces departed, or were destroyed. Some of the better units went back to AM GENERAL to be rebuilt into unarmored versions.
This truck is the supplemental armor version, which has additional armor, and has all the original armored parts that the factory installed. Originally painted green camo, it was painted with semi removable desert tan paint on the transport ship when it was shipped to Kuwait. After its return to the US, most of the desert tan paint was removed, but some still evident.
Wisconsin title, Form 97, and is legal for road use. The odometer shows 23k original miles. The gun turret revolves, opens and closes as it should. The seals on the rear hatch have been replaced. The right front corner of the hood had some minor damage and the hood has several surface cracks as most do. The tires look new but have been on the vehicle since purchased in 1992. I was told they have the run-flat rings in them. I have never seen another real 1044 for sale anywhere. Most of the HUMVEES in private hands today are M998 soft top troop carriers that came from Marine or Reserve bases in the US and were released and auctioned off in 1999.
Currently M998s are being released by various bases, but are not road legal, the Bill of Sale clearly stating “For off road use only.” As more of these trucks are being sold to private collectors and more people become aware of them the M1044 will become even more collectible.
This truck runs very well, always starts immediately even after months of inactivity. A few parts that could not be repaired have been replaced, such as some of the bullet proof side glass, which had “combat wounds” and could not be saved. The original glass is still in the rear left door but shows evidence of being shot. Both windshields have some delamination between the glass layers but have not been replaced because they are original. The right windshield still has the Panama sticker on it. Several of the shields in the engine compartment have been replaced. It has two new heavy duty nonmilitary batteries, the tool rack below the tailgate, a whip antenna, and will have a correct but nonfunctional winch mounted.
At full price the deactivated 50 caliber machine gun, a wire controlled surface to surface rocket launcher, a replica surface to air missile launcher, ammo boxes, helmets, first aid kit, gas mask, replica M16, camouflage netting, and slave cable, all shown in photos will be included.
This is a rare opportunity for a serious collector to own an extremely rare and original armored vehicle with combat history that can be driven on the street and can be taken into some serious off road terrain. While some people think they are ugly, everyone agrees that they are the ultimate BAD ASS TRUCKS!!

M41 Walker Bulldog with 76mm live Gun (registered)
This is a restored, complete and operating walker bulldog tank. later model with upgraded electric motor for turret instead of the old hydraulic system which took up much more room in the turret.
Engine is correct Continental paired with Allison transmission. The engine only has about 8 hours on it and was rebuilt in Italy in late 1970s.
This Bulldog is equipped with a fully functional 76mm main gun. Barrel is untouched, rifling is plentiful and the breech ring as clean as the day it came off the assembly line.

1944 M7-B1 Priest 105 Howitzer Motor Gun Carriage (Tank Destroyer)
A perfect full ground up restoration with NOS engine, tracks, bogies, etc. A true one of a kind very rare tank. This vehicle is very rare and seldom seen in collections today. It essentially is an open topped Sherman tank complete with an anti-aircraft 50 cal machine gun.
The main differences between the early M7's and the M7-B1 were the switch from the M3 Sherman chassis with the R-975 to the M4 Sherman using the Ford GAA V8 engine with 500 horsepower from 1100 Cubic Inches. The primary reason for the change was the ability to go from a 35 to a 65 degree elevation for the 105 Howitzer. The V-8 set lower in the hull allowing lowering the M2-A1 Howitzer to achieve the goal of a 65 degree angle. Some of the low profile was lost but it was agreed that it was worth it. The 105 had a muzzle velocity of 1,550 feet per second and a range of 7 Miles. The machine gunner's pulpit was also raised accordingly to allow for a clear field of fire for the machine gunner. This particular M7-B1 is in beautiful condition as you can see from the photos and has a completely rebuilt GAA V8 engine.

1944 Auto Car Personnel Carrier
The half track is all original. The armor has never been cut or altered except for the M16A1 current configuration. The half track starts and runs flawlessly and I did replace the brakes and clutch for safety and drivability reasons when originally purchased. Although I was planning on a frame off restoration, the motor runs extremely strong and I drove it in a couple of parades as is. I just have way too many projects to complete and I know I just won’t get to this project and I would like to see someone get this vehicle that has the time to care for it properly and to share it with others. It has been stored in our company shop under a silk parachute for the last five years.
